During yesterday’s I/O presentation of the mobile content ecosystem by Richard Gingras, he revealed how popular AMP has become with publishers. Google has 125+ million AMPlified pages indexed in the search results, coming from 640,000 domains.
He also commented about how active and supportive the developer community has been, with over 7300 developers with 1900+ code pulls and 88 releases.
Like I mentioned earlier, AMP is an open source project. The activity and engagement we’ve seen has been tremendous and inspiring. Over 7300 developers have engaged with the effort. There have been over 1900 code submissions from developers. The project has put out 88 releases so far, about a release per week. Not bad for a project at about 8 months old. The velocity has been incredible and I thank each and every one of you who helped to make that happen.
From discovery platforms like Twitter and Pinterest to CMS providers like WordPress and Drupal, to dozens of analytics providers and ad networks. It’s been great to see the momentum behind AMP but the proof is in the adoption. The adoption curve is remarkable.
We’ve seen a 125+ million AMP documents in our index from over 640,000 domains from every corner of the globe and it continues to increase every day.
This number is sure to go up with Google’s announcement this week that recipe pages will now show up in their own AMP carousel, for recipe sites that have currently implemented AMP. And Google is still expected to continue expanding well beyond that, so it is definitely worth publishers looking into implementing AMP.
