Here are some quick tips to improve user engagement with AMP.

Help readers identify you with consistent branding and rich content across AMP and non-AMP pages

  • Reflect your brand in AMP pages. Use the same header and design scheme (e.g. colors, spacing, type styles) as in your non-AMP pages to ensure your pages are recognizable and appear legitimate.

  • Feature your most engaging content when converting your pages. Include key page elements like images, videos, embeds, structured data, comments and social media. Learn how to include 3rd-party content.

  • Keep AMP pages current. Dynamically update live blogs with amp-live-list.

Optimize for user engagement and retention

  • Provide interactive experiences on your AMP pages. Use components like amp-carousel to create rich image carousels and amp-iframe to incorporate interactive elements that AMP does not natively support.

  • Create personalized user journeys. Offer a login button, and if your content lives behind a paywall, implement your rules and offers using amp-access.

  • Extend onward journeys. Link to related or suggested articles and other relevant sections of your site.

  • Personalize content by including recommendations through amp-list.

  • Implement a menu with amp-sidebar to encourage users to browse the rest of your site.

  • Help readers share your content with amp-social-share and your own share buttons.

  • Cultivate new interactions such as lead generation, newsletter signup, and comment support with amp-form.

  • Aim for ad types that offer a good reader experience. Explore AMP ad formats such as amp-sticky-ad and amp-fx-flying-carpet. Follow ads monetization best practices.

  • Drive app downloads. Include an app install link in a banner with amp-app-banner.

  • Ensure a fast transition to your non-AMP Progressive Web App (PWA) site for readers. Use amp-install-serviceworker to populate your cache.
