AMP Checker: How To Check Your Website For AMP Compliance
Have you been working on your AMP site and now you’re trying to make sure that you’ve done everything the right way to ensure site compliance? Now that you’ve spent all that time on it, you need to be sure everything is going to go right. Or maybe you’ve only spent a little time, and you want to make sure that you’re on the right track before you do too much more. No matter what your plan is, you need an AMP checker that’s going to help you get the right look and style.
Methods Of AMP Validation
There are several different programs available that will help you to check the AMP formatting, style, and site compliance for your website.
If you’re looking for something super easy, you can use a browser developer console, which can be used right in the browser. You open the page and then add ‘#development=1’ to the end of the web address. Then open the Chrome DevTools console, and you’ll be able to see all of the validation errors that occur in your web page when it’s being opened with AMP. That way you’re ready to go on fixing the errors and getting your website ready a bit at a time.
With this method, you’re going to have one of the easiest processes, and you’ll be able to access anything you need, including the AMP JS library. That means you’re going to have access to everything and your website is going to have excellent quality. It’s going to get you more than you might think and it’s going to do it right in the browser of the website, which makes it easy to do no matter where you are and what you’re doing.
Web Interface Options
Your next option is to use the web interface option. You use the AMP Validator as a type of web interface. All you have to do is go to validator.ampproject.org, and you’ll be able to see all of the HTML sourcing for the page, and right next to it you’ll see the errors displayed. This is an interactive editor as well because you can start to change as you like to get the best validation and it will continue to update to let you know what it’s going to do and if it’s ready.
While this may not be quite as simple as other options, it’s going to help you out in some different ways. It’s going to help you create an easier method of fixing the problems. You don’t have to go back and forth between checking for validation and then going to fix it and then rechecking for validation. You can do all of those things at the same time and then copy it from the valid screen to where it needs to be. It’s just that simple.
Browser Extension Options
Next, there’s the browser extension option. Go directly to your browser toolbar and then you can use a browser extension. You access the AMP Validator from the extension, and then you’ll see the validity of the social media pages immediately, as you’re going to each one. You will see a colorful icon on the page each time you go to a different one and then you will be able to see what you need to do and how many errors there are. That’s going to help you get your website updated and make sure that it’s ready to go.
Because this is right in your browser, you don’t have to worry about where you are or what you’re using. You can just pull up the browser and then make sure that you have the correct extension on your browser. You’ll then be able to just scan through the pages of your social media website, and it’s going to look at each of them right from there. That’s going to help you and make sure that you are ready to update whatever you need to and that it’s going to be high quality in the end. Your validation is quite easy and is personally identifiable, though you have to change out the formatting and then get back to the validation process separately.
NPM Package For CI
Next is the NPM Package for CI. This is where you can integrate validation right into the process of building your website. You’ll be able to incorporate any test, or you can set up a schedule to make sure that everything is AMP when it takes the check. It’s going to help you get continuous updates as to whether you have AMP validation on your website or if you don’t. You’ll be able to get accurate updates and an accurate understanding of what your overall validation level is.
This package is quite simple, and you’ll be able to integrate it right into your website. You’ll want to make sure that you check it out and that you are making sure you set your website up to make it work for you as much as possible. With this, you won’t have to go through a lot of new validation processes. You won’t have to go back and forth quite as much about how you’re going to improve your website to improve the appearance to users and readers by making it personally identifiable with contact details such as an email address, as well as a privacy shield.
Command Line Tool
A command line tool can also help you validate because you just have to download Node.js and make sure it has npm on your computer system. Then, install npm install –g amphtml-validator on your command prompt. This is going to let you run a validation sequence and make sure that you’re ready to go. It’s going to let you know what you have and how your validation is going. If it’s not ready, you’re going to see the mistakes and the problems so that you can start working on them right away and you won’t have a problem with the site itself.
This is the final option when it comes to validating your website, and it’s going to be a little more labor intensive. You have to use the command tools to install a program and then run the validator on it. You’ll have to go through individual lists and lines, and it’s going to provide you with some information. It’s not quite as in depth as you might find with other alternatives and it’s going to require a lot of back and forth, but you will get where you need to on your validation process. It’s going to help you, however, and for some people, it’s a good way to get your validation without a lot of programming knowledge to go along with it.
If you’re not sure, your website is living up to all of its potential you’re going to want to look at what the professional website managers can do for you. The whole point of getting AMP throughout your website is to make sure it’s more accessible, and that’s more than just making it easy to use on a mobile device. It’s also about making it ADA accessible as well, which is going to help you create a program that you and anyone who wants to use it can enjoy. Speaking with a professional online or even over the phone is going to help you with all of that and more.
Fixing Validation Errors
When you find validation errors, you’re going to want to look at the problems and see what it is causing the issue. Some items will be easy to fix, and you can quickly and easily make the change without having to do a lot of work or put in any effort. Other errors might be a bit more confusing, but you’re going to want to look at what’s happening and make sure that you’re fixing the problem quickly, so it’s ready for validation the next time around.
With some of these methods of validation you’re going to have no problem fixing the error right in the system, and then it will start updating immediately to let you know if you’ve validated or if you’re still mistaken somewhere. With others, you’ll have to make the changes in your forms and then rerun the validation test to make sure that it’s corrected. Either way, make sure that you are updating the problems to keep everything working properly for people who want to use your website from their mobile device. Validation errors will make it harder to run your website and will slow it down, keeping your site from fully being qualified as AMP.
Why You Look For Errors
Watching for mistakes and making sure that you fix them is crucial because it’s something that people who use your website are going to be thinking and wondering about and they’re going to be paying attention to everything at the same time. You want to look for the errors before they find them since we all know viewers and readers online can be ruthless when they want to be. Not only that, but they can have difficulty if you’re not careful about your AMP software and programming.
You want to make sure all the problems are also fixed because it’s going to keep your customers coming back. Your readers want to make sure that they are getting the best information and they want to ensure that you are providing them with high-quality formatting. You have to comply with AMP to get that out of your mobile website. And once you’ve created the site it’s not as difficult as you might think to get everything looking right and still fitting the proper instructions and rules.
When a reader gets to a website and doesn’t stay it’s called a ‘bounce.’ You want to make sure that your bounce rate is very low because it’s going to lower the ratings that your website gets and it’s going to put you further down the list in search engine results, which is not a good thing for your website. Make sure that you are improving your website all the time and increasing your AMP because it’s going to help you get more people to your website and it’s going to keep them there. Not only that, but the AMP is going to make sure that it’s easier for them to get what they were doing.
Wrap It Out
Setting up your website is important for you and for anyone who might be interested in what you have to offer. Making sure that you put everything together right is going to help you immensely, and all you have to do is take the time to look up the rules and then validate your website when you’re done. It doesn’t even have to be done all by you. You can get a professional website manager to take care of some of the details if you’re not quite sure.
If you want to help your website to thrive and you want to make sure that you reduce your bounce rate, make sure that you are getting even more positive publicity and a whole lot more. Your website can turn into a household name, or it can turn into the biggest and best resource for those who are interested in whatever you’re offering. You’re going to love it, and everyone that you know and what to appeal to is going to love it as well.
