Google AMP: Create a Fast Mobile Web Experience

80% of content referrals come from social and search channels, with over 50% of content consumption happening on mobile devices. While mobile content should load super fast, the reality is that content can take several seconds to load, potentially impacting your bottom line. Research shows that the bounce rate can be as high as 58% for web pages that take nearly ten seconds to load.


Google's Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) are designed to enhance the mobile content ecosystem and user experience with faster-loading, mobile-first content pages.

What Are Accelerated Mobile Pages?

Accelerated Mobile Pages are open-sourced, stripped down HTML formats designed to serve optimal content via the mobile web browser. Three key characteristics of the AMP content:

1) Responsive & Efficient for Mobile Web

Rather than a responsive-design version of a desktop page, which typically uses more bandwidth due to rich assets and styles, AMP content is specifically designed for optimal mobile performance. AMP content is also cached and efficiently served, resulting in streamlined mobile pages that appear on users' screens as quickly and comprehensively as possible.

2) The Right Amount of JavaScript

While JavaScript helps build rich, dynamic components such as advertising, analytics and interactive experiences, it can also weigh down the page when used too heavily. AMP content is pre-wired with limited JavaScript to provide security, maximized performance, and optimal user experience.

3) Your Ads, Your Traffic

Google AMP content can incorporate a range of ads that align with the user-centric format. As a publisher, you control 100% of the inventory and how it's sold. Additionally, AMP content is considered part of your property so you receive traffic credit from third party measurement tools.

How Will Audiences Find AMP Content?

In 2022, Publishers Take Back Control With Subscription Success

Users are ready to pay for content that delivers

The Rise of the Mature User

It's been a long and winding path, but in 2022 the subscription model continues its upward trajectory as a top revenue strategy for publishers of all sizes. The tug of war between platforms and publishers reached its peak in the last few years of the previous decade, leaving users desperate for a modern user experience that's clear of any clutter from the duopoly. This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 5.7 million digital subscriptions in 2020.

And it all makes perfect sense. The subscription model eliminates the middleman — such as the platforms — so readers get the experience and content they want, and publishers get the cash they need.

Most publishers are bogged down with day-to-day content strategy and creation, which usually means their technology suffers. That translates into poor search rankings, traffic dips, and loss of revenue.

Even so, the idea of replatforming to a new CMS, migrating your data, and overhauling your site’s architecture can sometimes feel more daunting than simply fixing the issues your website currently faces. But the stumbling block here is that most publishers aren’t even sure what the exact problems are with their current site.

That’s why RebelMouse offers a free website health check. This comprehensive audit will help you make a data-backed decision on what the best and most cost-effective next steps are to brighten your site’s future. Here’s what our health check includes:

The Subscription Model Is Taking off and Competition Has Never Been Steeper

The Subscription Model Is Taking off and Competition Has Never Been Steeper

The post-pandemic user landscape is still ripe for subscription revenue

You can get a subscription for everything these days. Whether it’s a cheese-of-the-month club or annual access to read your favorite content, the subscription-based model has continued to gain steam in recent years. In fact, the market for digital subscriptions is valued at $650 billion according to a new report from Lineup, a subscription management solution.

The power of the subscription model has been growing since even before the COVID-19 crisis began, and isn’t showing any signs of slowing as we enter a post-pandemic landscape. According to What’s New in Publishing, Gannett reported a 46% year-over-year increase in digital subscriptions in November 2021, putting them at 1.5M total subscribers. Hearst grew its digital subscriptions by 50% in 2021.

But subscriptions aren’t just for big name publishers. Users in 2022 are ready to pay up for legacy names and new media companies alike, as long as it’s for an experience that’s beneficial to them, reliable, and free of the clutter that can come from third-party platforms. Speaking of platforms, even TikTok and Instagram have started to gauge their audiences’ temperature on subscription experiences. So, the competition has never been steeper for publishers looking to build a subscriber base. Unfortunately, launching a simple paywall may not be enough.
