Google has made a new change to AMP reporting that will make it much easier for those implementing AMP to troubleshoot errors and issues when validating the pages. Google is now showing AMP errors based on how critical they are.
Critical errors – the ones that will cause AMP to not display in the search results – will show that in a report. And errors that are not critical enough to prevent them from showing in the search results are shown as “non-critical” errors.
Here is what it looks like:
Google does still recommend you fix those non-critical errors though. It wouldn’t be unusual for Google to change the criteria for what is critical and what is non-critical in the future.
But showing them differently makes it easier for those troubleshooting AMP and it enables webmasters to prioritize the errors they should fix first when implementing.
