Google AMP: Now Users Can Load AMP Page Instantly from Their Domain
According to the latest update by the Google, now AMP web pages could be linked to signed exchanges enabling of which is a grant contribution by ITEF Web Packaging specification. The signed automatically exchanges activates the AMP page view a publisher’s domain when a content is viewed through Google Search. This feature can only be accessed on the browsers which supports Google Chrome and this will be accessible on other browsers eventually.
How It Works?
A user can instantly load an AMP web page by generating a balance between the user clicking on the result and using it privacy primitive way. It is a user-friendly technique to access the pages which they find favorable. It accounts to the immediate loading of the pages what a user might have intention to visit prior his clicking on the website. Instant loading results in great user experience.
The greatest benefit of AMP is that if a user skips off a document, the publisher still receives the signal of the user having gone through it. But with AMP update, now publisher will only be notified about the users who have actually accessed the web page and all this accounts to doing it in a privacy sensitive way.
By a thorough analysis Google found out that this privacy primitive way was in some way affecting the user experience to an extent. Owing to the user centric approach, Google developed URLs beginning with google.com/amp for getting viewed in Google AMP viewer instead of displaying the domain of the publisher. This drawback was soon curbed by further innovation in the web platform which along with displaying publisher’s URL retains the instant loading trait of AMP.
