Linking an AMP mobile page to a standard landing page.

An AMP page (Accelerated Mobile Page) is designed for campaigns targeted primarily at mobile users, which help you keep your visitors’ attention with loading times of under 1 second.

Because AMP was created to increase page load speeds, you’ll notice that some of the functionalities in the builder are missing, like the ability to add HTML, CSS or Javascript. AMP doesn’t currently support these features because they can take a toll on a page’s speed and performance.

If you would like to have both a non-AMP (for desktop visitors) and an AMP version of the same page (for visitors from mobile devices), you can do so by following the instructions below.

1. Create a standard page and publish it. For this example, the page is published to www.instapage.com/standard-page;

2. Create an AMP page and publish it. For this example, the page is published to www.instapage.com/amp-page;

3. Once you’ve published both pages, open the standard page. Under Settings, click HTML/CSS;

4. Copy and paste the following code into the header tab;

<link rel="amphtml" href="www.instapage.com/amp-page">

In our example, we used www.instapage.com/amp-page, but you should insert the URL that you published your AMP page to;

7. Copy and paste the URL that you published your standard page to (in this example it’s www.instapage.com/standard-page) into the Canonical link URL field.

8. Click Update to apply these changes to your AMP page.

When using Google Ads, you will have to add the AMP page URL in the Mobile URL field.

Once you have completed the above steps, the non-AMP and AMP version of the same page should be linked after Google indexes both pages. This process could take between 4 days and 4 weeks, according to data from Google.

When a visitor accesses the search result from a mobile device, the AMP version will be displayed. When a visitor accesses the search result from a desktop device, the non-AMP version will show.

If you don't want your pages to be accessible from organic search results, instead wanting them only accessible through paid ads, you should turn on the option to Hide the Page from Search Engines
