Accelerated Mobile Pages Advantages and Disadvantages:
The advantage of introducing Accelerated Mobile Pages is to improve display speed and reduce user stress.
If the page is slow to load, more users will leave before the display is complete.
If you can browse comfortably with Accelerated Mobile Pages, you can expect to improve the bounce rate.
In addition, the carousel in the top news (frame where articles are posted with photos) when searching from smartphones is almost limited to AMP pages, and in particular news sites can be expected to increase exposure on search engines.
However, the disadvantage is that there are restrictions when using it.
The standard of AMP HTML is different from that of normal HTML, and you have to write it according to it.
External files can’t be read from html basically, and style needs to be set for each page.
However, since the number of functions that can be used has increased dramatically since the beginning of AMP implementation, and the template of AMP page has been released, the disadvantages are being eased.
