AMP years in the past was all of the loopy and all the excitement he mentioned, which isn’t uncommon for Google to place all the pieces into one thing new after which a number of years later let it die out. Now you could obtain the identical efficiency with out AMP, then why use AMP?

Mobile Safari controls an enormous share of the cellular browser share and now the default search engine on cellular Safari is Google, Google pays lots for that – $15 billion per 12 months and rising.
I introduced up how I assumed that again in 2004 Microsoft would be capable of take over search market share from Google. I mentioned that as a result of again then, Microsoft owned the browser, the working system and PC market.
