Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) by Shop Sheriff

With more than half of Google searches taking place on mobile devices, mobile browsing is taking over how people shop online.

AMP is a Google-backed app that speeds up your webpage load times on mobile devices.  By indexing your pages on Google’s servers, AMP saves a live version of your page for almost instantaneous load times.

The app integrates right into the rest of your stack, and Google even gives SEO benefits to AMP-enabled mobile pages, increasing your opportunities for organic traffic.
