Implementing AMP on wordpress makes websites very quickly accessible from mobile networks. Website performance increases 4-8 times faster than without AMP. If previously your wordpress website was fast enough and mobile friendly, then with AMP the access speed will increase rapidly, load time is lightning fast, blazing speed, stable, and more than just mobile friendly.
Blog visitors also feel comfortable, no need to wait for a long load to move from article to article. With AMP the website is more SEO optimized and mobile friendly with a simple and lightweight appearance. AMP wordpress also supports adsense ad scripts and auto ads.
Google AMP contributes greatly to increasing blog rankings in search engines. We know that whatever Google recommends will be a determining factor for SERP ranking in search engines. Content pages and ads in AMP format also provide a smooth and enjoyable experience on mobile devices.
AMP Review for WP Pro Best AMP Plugin of 2020
We have been using the pro version of the AMPforWP plugin on the SEON website since April 1st 2020 and are very satisfied with its performance. We previously used the pro version of the WP AMP plugin from codecanyon.net but its appearance and performance are way below the pro version of AMPforWP.
Other AMP plugins spoil the appearance of the website. AMPforWP Pro is the only one that works well and the display is satisfactory. Mobile Menu, Search button, Floating share button, table of content, article ratings, inline advance amp ads are very good at showing on mobile. The appearance of the blog and single page archives is very elegant and there are many premium add-on features that are indispensable for website SEO which are executed very well in this plugin. For us, the Pro version of AMPforWP is the Best AMP Plugin for wordpress in 2020.
Let’s start by looking at our website traffic based on google analytics in the last 30 days below.
From the graph above, it can be seen at a glance that website traffic started to crawl up on March 23-30 when we added content and improved the website’s seo onpage structure. The pro version of AMPforWP was installed on April 1st and didn’t wait long for the chart to jump until the peak reached 1500 visitors on Tuesday, April 7th 2020. Let’s break down in more detail.
The graph above is our website google analytics data for the last 7 days since the AMPforWP pro version was installed. There are 5488 visitors coming from organic search with an average visit duration of 1 minute 17 seconds and this is pretty good. The remaining 1013 direct visits, 66 backlinks and 65 referrals from social signals. Let’s breakdown in more detail.
The graph above is the distribution of data from where visitors come from. Based on data for the last 7 days there were 5479 visitors from mobile phones or cellular networks, 1093 visitors from PCs or laptops, and 37 visitors from tablet users.
From this data, it can be concluded that the majority of visitors came from mobile accessing AMP pages with a dominant percentage of 82.90 percent, the remaining 16.54 percent from desktops and 0.56 percent from tablet users.
This means that AMP optimization for mobile is very necessary because nowadays the majority of traffic comes from smartphone users. Almost certainly everyone has an Android smartphone and accesses information using a mobile device.
The good news is from the data above, it can be concluded that the optimization of the AMP website using the pro version of the AMPforWP plugin that we used worked well.
Anything Premium Add On in Pro version of AMPforWP Plugin

1. Endpoints for AMP subdomain
This add-on allows you to add custom AMP Endpoints as Subdomains. Using this extension you can customize the AMP URL structure according to your needs, for example, from the original seon.co.id/title-articles/amp changed to amp.seon.co.id/judul-articles , so it looks cleaner and more professional, right?
2. AMP Themes & Templates
The first thing that makes us fall in love with this pro version of the AMPforWP plugin is the appearance of several themes and its premade layout which is very nice, easy on the eyes and very light. You can see the details here .

This template has a pre-made design for each use with customization options and doesn’t require coding, just drag and drop the page builder.
3. Elementor & Divi Support
The second thing that made us decide to buy an agency license for $ 499 per year for this pro version of the AMPforWP plugin is its compatibility with DIVI and Elementor.
The name of the extension is AMP Page Builder Compatibility. This add-on will support default modules as well as special modules created using the DIVI and Elementor page builders so that they can appear on Google AMP pages with a percentage of 90-95 percent that will look the same as the original version.

6. Table of Contents Plus, LuckyWP TOC, Easy Table of Content
The fifth feature of the pro version of AMPforWP that we think is vital and important for website SEO is its ability to display a table of content.
TOC or table of content is a table of contents in the form of important points in the article. Usually, these points are in the form of headings that are used as sub-headings in an article. When a visitor clicks on a point in the table of contents in the Table of Content, the visitor will go directly to the point that was pressed in the same article.
Table of Content has a big influence on SEO, when the TOC is indexed by Google, it will strengthen rich results (rich snippets) and increase the SERP position which means that it has the potential to increase the amount of organic traffic.
AMPforWP pro version has 3 extensions, each of which supports the TOC display generated by the Table of Contents Plus plugin, LuckyWP TOC, Easy Table of Content.
7. Star Review Ratings for AMP
The sixth feature that is also important for SEO is the ability of the pro version of AMPforWP to display ratings on AMP pages and when combined with WP Schema Pro, this Rating also appears on the Google SERP in the form of a rich snippet along with the AMP icon. Isn’t that cool?
You can display Ratings for product reviews or post article ratings in Star format in AMP. For example, if you enter ‘4’ it will display 4 out of 5 stars for the review rating of the article.
This AMP premium rating add on also works with custom post types and is compatible with the following plugins.
- KK star ratings
- WP Customer Reviews
- WP Review
- Multi Rating
- Yet Another Star Rating
- Wp Recipe Maker
- Star Rating Shortcode
8. Content Teaser for AMP
The idea of this AMP Content Teaser feature is to increase visits to the main website (non-AMP pages) by giving teaser content. This means that article content in AMP is possible to be cut and only partially displayed, and below it is a CTA click button to the original content.
The use of AMP Content Teaser will also reduce the bounce rate of the website because there is click activity and there are 2 pages that visitors will open, namely the amp page and the original website page.
AMP Teaser will automatically clip content based on your choice and then add a button at the end that will redirect visitors to the non-AMP version.
Some publishers were afraid to adopt the AMP platform so they
asked the AMPforWP team to come up with a way to help them drive traffic to the responsive (non-AMP) version of the site.
9. Floating Button for AMP
Floating button or floating button is one of the most important elements in the UI or User Interface. If you want the floating button to remain on the AMP page then you need to buy the pro version of AMPforWP to get this premium add on. With the Floating Button for AMP extension you can easily create a floating button for the AMP version.
Floating Button for AMP Features:
1. Easy setting, you only need to select the icon you want.
2. WhatsApp, Call Now, and Custom Icon and you can even upload your own custom image
3. Fully Responsive will look great on desktop as well as display on mobile.
10. Contact Form 7, Gravity Forms, Formidable Forms, Ninja Form, Caldera Forms, Email Opt-in Forms, WP Forms
Contact us page and contact form are important elements in the anatomy of a website. This page serves as a means by which website visitors can communicate or contact the website manager directly.
With this form, website visitors can contact us easily and quickly. The goal, of course, is that visitors don’t have to bother sending emails, SMS, or calling by phone to the website manager.
