But, as a marketer, simply investing in mobile optimization for your website isn’t going to be enough to stay on top of the trend. Mobile device users spend hours a day on their phones, and they certainly won’t navigate your content if your interface is slow-loading, clunky, and not finger-friendly. Enter Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), a new project that taps into open-sourced technical components that promote speed and ease of use for online content readers, while allowing you to retain the integrity of the content you want to feature. Meaning, rather than requiring your team to build out the technical functions of your page, AMP feeds your content through an existing page network that is meant to increase speed and reduce loading time on mobile devices.

Are you getting it? Yes, I am absolutely talking about bloggers — professional bloggers to be more specific and not hobby bloggers. If you are a regular reader of Minterest (which I refuse to believe :D) then you probably know that I don’t stop criticizing bloggers (especially the so-called professional bloggers) when they are running a blog only to make money and then branding themselves as an “I love to connect/help…”. Perhaps you should check out: 30 Things I Absolutely Hate About Your Blog. Or, maybe this screenshot (an excerpt from the aforementioned blog post) should summarize everything: I mean, it’s perfectly fine (actually sensible) to recommend a web hosting company that they trust. But is that the case? No. You can see that every single blogger is recommending a web hosting company and that exactly is the reason why I’m not recommending any.
