AMP years in the past was all of the loopy and all the excitement he mentioned, which isn’t uncommon for Google to place the whole lot into one thing new after which a number of years later let it die out. Now which you could obtain the identical efficiency with out AMP, then why use AMP?
We spoke concerning the distinction between the pre-announced Google algorithm updates versus the updates Google doesn’t provide you with plenty of heads up on. The pre-announced updates are typically very mild weight in comparison with those Google doesn’t pre-announce.

Apple Search was the subsequent subject we spoke about and he thinks Apple Search and Highlight would possibly be capable of compete marketshare sensible with Google. Cell Safari controls an enormous share of the cell browser share and now the default search engine on cell Safari is Google, Google pays rather a lot for that – $15 billion per 12 months and rising.
