I recommend NitroPack as a better plugin to boost page speed.
Also buy a hosting with Litespeed.
istarthosting offers litespeed for all Wp sites

If you have a solid responsive theme that works well on mobile, then you do not need AMP'd versions of your pages. AMP'd pages are boring and I hate them. They have made the internet a far worse place. Remember when the internet once had some diversity in web design?

If your website is so slow that it can't serve pages to mobile devices, seriously, you need to hire somebody. Google may penalize you for having very slow rendering pages but not for the absence of amped pages. I hope I am making sense this morning LOL.

Absolutely agree with the above.

I really intensely dislike AMP. It completely destroys your site design and functionality, ruins user experience, and it doesn't actually solve most speed problems. If your site is slow and bloated and needs AMP to work at decent speed on mobile devices, then you are much better off finding and solving the problems so that it loads fast for everyone.

Today I ran my website through google's page speed insights. I've been using the AMP for WP plugin, which I consider the best.

Today I realized my non-amped/regular pages got a perfect 100 score. However, my AMPed pages only got an 84! I'm sick about this because it must have been going on for years now.

So, if you happen to be my competition in any way, please AMP all of your pages. That is my best advice.

BonnieStout, what I have written about AMP in this particular thread is all you need to know about it. Ignore my expert advice at your peril.

I'm sure that AMP might have a place and use case that makes sense somewhere, though I can't imagine what it might be, but for the massive majority of sites, including WP sites, it is much better to have a good responsive mobile-first (or at the least mobile-friendly) design to start with.

S4 I agree. A few years back I hand-coded a landing page, one AMPed and one not AMPed. Surprisingly, the AMPed page was actually bigger because of the required google javascript. However, when I did speed tests, the AMPed page loaded faster, especially the second time around since the javascript would then be cashed. I estimate that 90% of the time, this javascript file is already cashed, so AMPed pages should nearly always load faster.

The problem with a WP AMP module is I have no idea what they are doing. My best suggestion at this point is to perform speed tests before and after you install an AMP module. As for me, I will never touch AMP again -- it's mobile-first all of the way.

I know a little bit about WordPress plugin. I already installed a few of them onto my website like yoast. Working well so far. But this time, I want to focus on a reliable website builder not WordPress. Can you please help me. Basically, I want to try something new. Thanks!

Hey there!
In general, AMP can help your SEO, but it is not necessarily essential, and some businesses benefit more from AMP than others. AMP is just one of many ways of optimizing for speed and mobile experience for SEO.

It really depends on whether you want your online store to look the way you designed it or not, and whether it is currently responsive and uses well written plugins and theme.

See all of the notes in the above posts.

The decision to install the AMP WordPress plugin really depends on your website's goals and requirements. AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) is an open-source initiative aimed at improving mobile browsing experience by providing lightweight versions of web pages that load faster on mobile devices.

Installing the AMP plugin can indeed help to improve the loading speed of your website on mobile devices, which can be beneficial for user experience and search engine optimization. However, as you mentioned, the AMP plugin can sometimes cause duplicate content issues if it generates separate AMP versions of your pages and posts, which can negatively affect your SEO efforts.

I read that it help to improve loading speed on mobile website but I am having this iusse when it auto added to url of my Wordpress post like this
example.com/this-is-post-title/?amp=1

If you are experiencing duplicate content issues caused by the AMP plugin, you may want to consider removing the plugin or troubleshooting the issue further. You can try checking your permalink settings to ensure that they are set up correctly or use a plugin like Yoast SEO to add rel=canonical tags to your AMP pages, which tells search engines that the original version of the page is the canonical version and should be prioritized in search results.

Ultimately, whether or not you choose to use the AMP WordPress plugin depends on your website's specific needs and requirements. If you value fast loading speeds and a mobile-friendly user experience, then the AMP plugin may be a good option for you. However, if you are concerned about the potential duplicate content issues, you may want to consider alternative solutions or removing the plugin altogether.
