Google has announced that tomorrow, february 24, they will start showing Accelerated Mobile Pages in their search results pages. This is big news for everyone involved in publishing information on the Web!
AMP use a modified version of your web site pages, so that display on mobile phones is incredibly fast. Users like fast, and so Google is putting a lot of effort in that program. Its robots have started indexing AMP pages on websites offering them, and those pages will get a front row in searches made from a mobile device. And of course, users will love them, asking for more.
The AMP project was announced last year, with many famous partners, including The Guardian, the New York Times or Wordpress.com being part of the initiative. This will certainly push adoption, with the Wordpress project having published some weeks ago a dedicated plugin.
We believe having an AMP version of your informational pages is going to be a major advantage in getting mobile traffic to your site. Being an SEO and content company, we have decided to bring this ability to Joomla!
So I am very pleased to announce that wbAMP, our new plugin for Joomla Accelerated Mobile Pages is available as of now.
Just back from JoomlaDay UK, last saturday in London, and we have to tell you how great a Joomla! event it was!
Rowan and Brian put together an event which attracted more than 160 Joomlers from across the UK and Europe. The place was packed, with still plenty of room to meet and talk with people. Thanks to David Jardin and the video team, all talks are available online now (see links below).
I was lucky to speak as well, about Google Analytics and Search console - and the detailed slides of this talk is now available for viewing and download as well.
We are very happy to let you know we are sponsoring JoomlaDay UK, which happens this saturday, february 13, in central London. The team has made a wonderful job of reviving the event after a short break, and the place has been sold out, even after adding some capacity. The full programme is on this page. As you can see, it's a pretty diverse offering, from UX to programming through site integration and SEO.
This will be double the pleasure for me: my first time attending a JoomlaDay in the UK, and also the first time for Weeblr as an event sponsor.
Cybermonday is with us already!
Here at Weeblr, the cybermonday2015.s203 coupon will get you 20% off and 3 months free added on Josetta and sh404SEF new one-year subscriptions.
On top of that, we and a host of other valuable Joomla! providers offer you the deals you hoped for:
A few weeks back, we silently launched an initiative to help you get the highest value out of our products range: our referral program. In a few words: you get free months on your sh404SEF or Josetta subscriptions, while your friends or clients get discounts on their own.
Today we're happy to release version 4.7.0 of sh404SEF. Though still in the 4.x branch, it is an important release, where we can start to see the benefits of taking back control of support and sales of our products last April.
