John Mueller and Mariya Moeva Talk About the Benefits of AMP and Mobile Apps

In the Virtual Keynote: Everything Mobile with Google’s John Mueller and Mariya Moeva today it was clear that businesses should first start with a mobile site. Many thanks to the event host, +Eric Enge of +Stone Temple Consulting.

Key Takeaway: Gain New App Users with Mobile Ready Pages

One benefit of mobile-ready pages for business owners is that you may get new users. Having your mobile strategy smart is a great thing. AMP is important in terms of getting the information accessible and fast to the end user. The easiest thing right now for businesses with mobile apps is to use your API. Many times the delay in getting tasks done is simple that,people have to talk to each other. The web team and the app team still have to interact to get this done, but it is currently the fastest way.

Then make sure that your app supports HTTPS, so that Google can go to town indexing and rendering your web content to mobile users. Maria Moeva offered that additional benefit of how API also helps with showing engagement and that these metrics can be used to try show up higher in SERPs. A suggestion for good practice to ensure your text is large enough for mobile searches is to use 16px for your font size.

Here are some of my favorite comments:

When asked about a year from now +Mariya Moeva commented, “I would really hope that a year from now will actually have a mobile-friendly version. The lag we see with adoption within the community is definitely significant. We see a lot of people missing out on this whole thing. Consider progressive enhancement and graceful desegregation for slower speeds and older devices.”


“It makes sense to start with a mobile site first. All the mocks, all the new features are done on mobile. They are essentially built for the mobile device from the start." - +John Mueller

"Within AMP it loads almost instantly. Almost within less than a second you can get there. It is open source; anyone can work on it to support functionality. It is a chance to rethink what we created for the web. With AMP you essentially simplify things completely and kinda start with something lightweight.” - John Mueller

Maria Moeva’s comment about HTTPS as a ranking factor: “If you are doing it for the rankings, you are doing it for the wrong reasons. The trust that you get from the users is more important.

“At some point, most people will go to a mobile site, when it comes there, we need to make sure we can crawl a mobile site. These are things where you are looking at a long-term development and where is the web headed in the next five to ten years. Those discussions are not easy; no-one has a crystal ball”, added Mueller.

When asked about getting in the Google News Carousel, Mueller responded, “What is kinda different is that newsworthy content is local news. We need to make sure that there is enough content to show there within AMP now. We show either the carousel or the individual links. It is not like we need 10 of those to show up. It is not limited to Google News. In the news section, the type of content matters not the type of site. What ever helps your mobile site will help your desktop site. Definitely, if you make your mobile site work, it will trickling out and keep the desktop version still there.”

I wanted to understand consumer expectations for resolution of complaints. So I asked. the answer surprised me but give you a chance to exceed their expectations. And win them back.
A critical element in resolving complaints is demonstrating your willingness to solve the problem by responding quickly. But consumers may offer you more leeway than you had previously thought in terms when they expect you to resolve the issue. The Timing Of Complaint Response Most small businesses attempt to deal with…

John, may I ask a question. One link from one unique domain pointing to your site = 1 vote, right? How about, 2000 links from same one unique domain, would be counted as 1 vote or 2000 votes? Thank you for your answer.

If I have a single page WP website, how do I implement the AMP tech on it and is there any AMP regionalising option for my regional websites (country wise)?

You'll soon be getting alerts in Google Analytics if your site is hacked for spam. Head over to the Webmaster Blog to read more about what that means and what to do if your site is hacked.

+Matthew Whiteford, you can stop the Ghost Spam with Hostname restrictions. However, smart bots can simulate your Hostname as well. This article by +Georgi Georgiev may help you - http://blog.analytics-toolkit.com/2015/guide-referrer-spam-google-analytics/

Google Anti-abuse & Security Lead +Elie Bursztein talks about research that helps 600,000 webmasters re-secure their hacked sites every year. Check out his blog, linked below. 
Every year, close to 600,000 sites are hacked. Given the scale of the problem, notifying users to prevent harm and webmasters so they can clean up their sites is critical to combat hacking. This post looks at the effectiveness of the current warning strategies used by Google and their long-term impact.
