Recwebs Accelerated Mobile Links democratizes the power of AMP as standard for our customers.
App-quick browsing experience
Viewing AMP-enabled content through Recwebs Accelerated Mobile Links is at least 3 times faster than loading traditional mobile content.
Increased user engagement
Users can quickly view AMP-enabled external content in AMP Viewer, without ever having to leave your website. This provides a more native app feel for mobile websites.
Secure global caching
AMP-enabled pages linked on your website are cached across 102 data centers, in 50 different countries. They meet strict AMP HTML validation rules, and are checked for potential security issues like XSS attacks.
How Does Accelerated Mobile Links Work?
With Accelerated Mobile Links enabled, our AMP Discovery technology finds any AMP links on the page and starts caching the AMP content around our secure global AMP cache. The AMP Discovery technology allows our clients to have third party AMP pages discovered and served on their site directly from our edge servers. Our edges are present across 102 data centers in 50 different countries.
Now that the AMP contents on the page are cached, when a user taps on a link, the browser fetches the AMP article from Recwebs’s AMP cache and presents our AMP Viewer (the viewer that slides up when you click on an AMP link on same page to provide native like mobile experience.).
The AMP Viewer uses the AMP HTML runtime to load the AMP article. AMP pages are delivered through Recwebs’s secure AMP Cache. Recwebs ensures that all of the pages meet the strict validation rules of the AMP HTML spec and check for potential security issues like XSS attacks.
Google research shows that 53% of people will leave a website that fails to load in 3 seconds or less
Empowering mobile websites with the power of AMP
Over the past year, publishers including BuzzFeed, BBC, DailyMail, The Economist, The Guardian, Huffington Post, Mashable, The New York Times, and Wired have optimized more than 600 million pages of new content using the AMP HTML format. David Merrell, Senior Product Manager at The Washington Post reports “We have seen load times average 400 milliseconds, an 88% improvement over our traditional mobile website.“. The Washington Post also saw a 23% increase in mobile search users who return within 7 days of viewing AMP content.
With Accelerated Mobile Links, Recwebs delivers an experience analogous to viewing AMP-enabled pages from a top-level Google search. Accelerated Mobile Links looks for valid AMP URLs on your website, and shows the visitor which of them are AMP URLs. Once a visitor clicks on a valid AMP link, the page launches instantly in AMP Viewer, within the same tab.
AMP-enabled URLs on your website are cached in our secure AMP Cache, ensuring they meet the strict validation rules of the AMP HTML spec, while checking for security issues like XSS attacks.
