Are You Ready for the AMP Revolution?

Are You Ready for the AMP Revolution?

Google has recently stated that their Mobile Page Ranking change is rolling out early 2018. It was previously stated that they were aiming for the end of 2017 but I guess they changed their mind.
My guess is that they understand the repercussions this will have on the industry and how their new change will disrupt rankings and traffic across the board. If there was ever a time you needed to get ready for this change the time is now. Why now? Here are a few reasons to consider:

1. If you are doing SEO on your site or business you want to make sure you don’t lose your position or the advantages you have on the 1st page. My suggestion, start now, start early!
2. Its unclear (really) how far this index change will go, will they still leave regular optimized pages float alongside AMP pages like they currently have on the web, my guess is NO!
3. How long is the roll out? Will it be gradual or will it be just like past index disruptions that were made over a short period of time leaving the winners to gain everything and the losers in the dust?
4. If your site and pages are not AMP ready, you stand to lose more than just traffic and relevancy, you may very well lose a ton of business to your competitors that are AMP ready.
5. Don’t go cheap and wait to the last minute. This is an important change and needs to be taken seriously. Hire an agency to get the job done right, the 1st time!

FYI
There doesn’t seem to be any news on the horizon to AMP change affecting Adwords and Pay Per Click campaigns.

Google Officially Rolling Out AMP Into the Main Google Search Results Pages

OK, so here we go! It was recently reported that Google is taking AMP Pages (Accelerated Mobile Pages) out of their sandbox and unto the web!

Google RankBrain Rank Brain

 

Please Note: Google says that AMP pages will not receive a rankings boost! (Ummmmm I guess We Will See..)

Google announced and made the developer preview available for all to see at (g.co/ampdemo). So what exactly does this mean? What this means is mobile search users will start to see content in search results with the AMP lightning bolt logo next to it, indicating the content is available in a mobile format. This is can be compared to the “mobile friendly” format we are all used to seeing.

I MY HUMBLE OPINION!

Google has suggested in the past that load time and page speed may become mobile ranking factors across the board. Although they claim there will be no rank boost involved with this recent update, I wouldn’t get too comfortable! As a matter of fact, Google confirmed with the folks at SeachEngineLand that “where there are two identical pages, one AMP and one mobile-friendly, Google will serve the AMP page.” This sounds like preferential treatment to me and it also sounds like a major roll out for G!

Whats the Big Fuss About AMP Anyway?

Well, from what I understand, AMP is a much more efficient way to serve up pages to Mobile users. Some of the benefits described on SEL are as followed:

  • AMP pages are 4x faster, use 10x less data compared to non-AMP pages
  • On average AMP pages load in less than one second
  • 90 percent of AMP publishers experience higher CTRs
  • 80 percent of AMP publishers experience higher ad view ability rates

Ultimately G sees this as a way to better serve their Mobile consumers. Excited to see what’s on the horizon.

Bing Apps Now Allows You To Edit Disapproved Ads & Text Ads

If you are currently driving traffic using Bing Ads, you can now make edits and adjustments via their App!

They recently mentioned this feature on blog: Here!

Obviously this should make life easier for marketers! I always wondered why this wasn’t an option and when it would even become an option instead of logging in directly and addressing these issues some other way, but I guess Bing got it and decided to add this option as a way to keep enhancing accessibility.

Apple Is Entering the Paid Search Game! I Have Pics-Sneak Peak

Apple is now getting into the paid search business-booyah! Back in April, a report surfaced on Bloomberg that Apple was considering entering the Paid Search game for their App Store. As most of us in the industry already know, Paid Search is a huge money maker for tech companies. Am I surprised Apple hasn’t instituted something already for their App Store? No! I am not surprised because as of late they seem to be behind on just about everything else when it relates to cellphone design technology, virtual reality and that old, cumbersome, music hostage music player they call: Itunes! 🙂

Now, I think this new feature will actually benefit those hard core App developers in numerous ways. As we all know the App Store is over saturated with Apps therefore making it difficult for developers to monetize because most of the time their Apps can’t even be found! (They are buried deep somewhere in the dark, deep corridors of the App Store.) With this new feature, developers can now drive traffic and attention to their App and really expose their brand and their creation in a much simpler fashion. There is still no access to their platform, but I’ve included screen shots and pictures of what you can expect!

1-New App

Bing Ads to Now Support Extended Text Ads as Well in Their User Interface

Bing Ads to now support extended text ads as well in their user interface

bing-ads-giantB-word-1920

Well I guess Bing felt like they had to follow in Google’s footsteps, again, and begin allowing users to expand their text ads within the Bing user interface.  As mentioned in my previous article this is good news for advertisers that can now add additional content or copy that will make their ads more lucrative and hopefully help them increase their overall click through rate.

How To Leverage This Update for Your Benefit 

One of the strategies that we are currently using with some of our clients is that now with this new feature we are considering making the ads a little bit more diverse and including numerous areas of service and products that we that we feel will give us the greatest chance of getting somebody to click on our ads. We think this new feature will not only help a standout but hopefully increase the click through rate on high converting ads that we currently manage and hopefully help us convert more business on how you converting pages that we’ve created within our sites. Of course all this has to be balanced out with the reality that with a higher click through rate I can also expect a higher spend but obviously we’re going to measure that up against conversions and ensure we still get a positive ROI.
