Nonaktifkan AMP di WordPress dengan Cara yang Ramah SEO

Proyek Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) adalah inisiatif sumber terbuka yang mengklaim dapat meningkatkan pengalaman pengguna seluler. Implementasi AMP tidaklah mudah. Ada banyak potensi masalah yang muncul setelah menggunakan AMP. Oleh karena itu, lebih baik untuk menonaktifkan AMP sesegera mungkin.

  1. Hapus tautan rel="amphtml" dari halaman non-amp.
  2. Atur NOINDEX untuk halaman AMP

Sebelum saya masuk ke penjelasan teknis dengan langkah-langkah yang tepat, izinkan saya memberi tahu Anda ….

Mengapa menghapus AMP adalah ide yang bagus?

  • Sejenak, tolong lupakan pernyataan “Kecepatan adalah faktor peringkat“. Hanya memiliki situs seluler tercepat di Internet dengan desain yang mengerikan tidak cukup untuk pertumbuhan blog. Sejauh menyangkut nilai moneter dan branding, jika blog Anda tidak berkinerja baik karena AMP, mengapa mengambil risiko?
  • Bayangkan jika Anda memiliki 1000 halaman, bukankah rumit untuk memastikan bahwa semua halaman AMP berfungsi dengan baik atau tidak? Google Search Console menampilkan informasi yang terbatas, itu tidak cukup bagi webmaster untuk menganalisis kegunaan halaman AMP.
  • AMP meningkatkan pekerjaan ekstra bagi blogger. Tidak semua blogger paham teknologi. Saya harus memeriksa setiap halaman web. Saya menemukan suatu tempat iframe YouTube tidak berfungsi, tidak ada formulir komentar, bahkan beberapa kode HTML tidak berfungsi di kotak penulis saya, dll. Memang, AMP memaksa webmaster untuk berkorban banyak.
  • Saya menganggap, menggunakan plugin tambahan akan mengundang kemungkinan bug, masalah keamanan, dan konflik dengan plugin lain. Sejauh ini saya belum menemukan plugin yang dapat diandalkan untuk AMP.
  • Saat ini, AMP bukanlah faktor peringkat untuk SERP seluler. Ya, ini mungkin luar biasa, menakjubkan bagi penerbit berita untuk mendapatkan peringkat di bawah tajuk yang disebut “Top Stories”. Tapi, bagaimana dengan blog baru? Apakah layak mengambil risiko untuk AMP?
AMP is not a ranking factor

Mengapa saya menghapus AMP dari Blog saya? – Alasan Besar

Hanya setelah beberapa hari menginstal plugin AMP, saya harus berurusan dengan banyak masalah yang membuat frustrasi. Jadi, saya sangat kecewa dan saya memutuskan untuk menghapusnya. Di bawah ini adalah beberapa tautan masalah penting.

Referensi: Daftar masalah yang saya hadapi dengan plugin AMP untuk WP

  • https://wordpress.org/support/topic/facing-redirection-loop-non-slash-to-slash/
  • https://wordpress.org/support/topic/is-showing-different-in-amp/
  • https://wordpress.org/support/topic/missing-trailing-slash/
  • https://twitter.com/TheGulshanKumar/status/827897651282706432

Bahkan, saya harus memperbaiki masalah AMP halaman demi halaman sejauh yang bisa saya temukan –

  • Saya perhatikan bahwa di AMP, Google AdSense tidak berkinerja dengan baik.
  • Ketika Anda memiliki halaman konten yang panjang, memverifikasi setiap elemen halaman web berfungsi dengan baik atau tidak menjadi membosankan. Saya takut melihat beberapa iframe video YouTube saya tidak berfungsi. Akhirnya, saya memperbaikinya juga dengan menambahkan beberapa JS yang diperlukan, untuk sesaat tidak diketahui.

Bagaimana cara menonaktifkan halaman AMP untuk WordPress?

Aturan emas

Jangan hanya menonaktifkan plugin AMP apa pun dan menganggapnya sudah selesai.

Jangan mengalihkan dari AMP ke permalink Non-AMP saat halaman AMP masih terindeks di SERP. Jika tidak, pengunjung organik Anda akan melihat kesalahan.

AMP error
AMP Menyebalkan dalam banyak hal dan ini adalah salah satunya betapa sulitnya untuk memilih keluar.

Konsep di balik solusi untuk menonaktifkan AMP tanpa kesalahan 404

Seperti yang kita ketahui bahwa Googlebot menemukan halaman AMP menggunakan tautan rel="amphtml" dari header situs web.

Untungnya, markup ini tidak ada hubungannya secara langsung dengan pengunjung manusia. Jadi, kita dapat menghapusnya untuk memberi tahu orang-orang di Google, maksud saya Googlebot bahwa kita tidak memiliki Halaman Web versi AMP. 🤷

Sementara Google melakukan de-indeks halaman, untuk sementara kami akan tetap menyajikan halaman AMP kepada pengunjung kami dengan menjaga plugin AMP kami tetap aktif.

Sementara diskusi tentang topik hangat ini, pertanyaan utama ada di benak kami-

Bagaimana jika Google menganggap halaman versi AMP sebagai duplikat URL untuk kanonis?

Tentu saja, itu karena kita telah menghapus markup relasi. Berdasarkan konsep ini, saya sangat merekomendasikan penggunaan NOINDEX untuk menghapus halaman AMP dari Google Penelusuran.

Untuk menonaktifkan halaman AMP dengan benar tanpa memengaruhi SEO, yang perlu Anda ikuti hanyalah dua langkah utama: –

  1. Pertama, hapus tautan rel="amphtml" keluaran dari halaman non-amp.
  2. Atur NOINDEX untuk halaman AMP

Menarik bukan? Mari kita masuk ke detail praktis langkah demi langkah.

Metode yang disarankan untuk Pengguna AMP

AMP official
  • Nonaktifkan dan Hapus plugin AMP.
  • Instal dan aktifkan plugin AMP untuk WP (Ini akan membuat prosesnya lebih mudah)
  • Buka Pengaturan Lanjutan AMP untuk WP
  • Aktifkan “Ubah Titik Akhir ke ?amp” untuk mengembalikan struktur tautan permanen plugin resmi AMP.
  • Sekali lagi dalam pengaturan lanjutan, apakah Anda melihat area teks untuk Enter HTML in Head? Masukkan kode di bawah ini.
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow"/>
  • Terakhir, gulir halaman ke bawah hingga terakhir, aktifkan “Mode Dev di AMP“.
  • Pertahankan status ini selama 7 hari hingga semua halaman AMP hilang dari SERP.

Metode yang disarankan untuk AMP untuk Pengguna WP

amp for wp
  • Instal dan aktifkan plugin AMP untuk WP
  • Buka Pengaturan Lanjutan AMP untuk WP
  • Apakah Anda melihat area teks untuk Memasukkan HTML di Head? Masukkan kode di bawah ini untuk noindex AMP dari SERP.
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow"/>
  • Gulir halaman ke bawah, aktifkan “Mode Dev di AMP“.
  • Pertahankan status ini selama 7 hari hingga semua halaman AMP hilang dari SERP.

Itu saja. Dan, ini adalah cara ramah SEO yang tepat untuk menyingkirkan AMP.

FYI: Ketika Anda mengaktifkan mode dev, secara otomatis menghapus rel=”amphtml”. 😎


Metode lama untuk AMP untuk Pengguna WP

Langkah 1. Hapus keluaran rel=”amphtml” dari kepala

Dengan menggunakan RegEx, Anda dapat mencocokkan string dan menggantinya dengan nilai yang Anda inginkan (yang kosong). Saya pikir ini adalah cara termudah untuk menghapus rel="amphtml" dari output HTML WordPress.

Dengan kata sederhana, dengan langkah-langkah cerdas di bawah ini, kita akan memindai markup AMP di halaman HTML WordPress, kita akan menghapusnya dengan cepat menggunakan Search & Replace melalui RegEx.

Regular Expressions
Ekspresi Reguler yang Divalidasi

Proses

Untuk menghapus tautan rel="amphtml" dari kepala, buka langkah-langkah ini.

  1. Instal & aktifkan plugin yang paling berguna yang disebut Real-Time Find and Replace. Plugin ini memungkinkan Anda untuk secara dinamis (yaitu pada saat halaman dibuat) mengganti kode dan teks dari tema dan plugin lain dengan kode dan teks yang Anda pilih sebelum halaman dikirimkan ke browser pengguna.

    real time find and replace
  2. Buka Alat > Temukan dan Ganti Waktu Nyata

    Real Time Find and Replace Settings
  3. Periksa Use Regex
  4. Dalam bidang Find (Temukan), ketik persis <link rel="amphtml" href="(.+)" >
  5. Di bidang Replace (Ganti), biarkan kosong.
  6. Perbarui pengaturan. Itu saja.

    remove AMP rel markup

Kami berterima kasih kepada penulis, plugin ini menghemat waktu kami yang berharga.

Langkah 2. Siapkan NOINDEX untuk halaman AMP

Ini adalah langkah penting untuk menghindari pengindeksan konten duplikat karena pada langkah terakhir kita telah menghapus rel="amphtml" dari header situs web.

  1. Buka pengaturan plugin AMP untuk WP
  2. Pergi ke SEO
  3. Tambahkan kode meta di bawah ini ke bagian kepala
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow"/>
noindex amp

Proses ini tidak akan memengaruhi peringkat halaman kanonis (Non-AMP) Anda.

Atau, tambahkan cuplikan di bawah ini menggunakan plugin Code Snippets.

// remove rel="amphtml" added by AMP for WP plugin
add_filter('ampforwp_modify_rel_canonical', 'prefix_remove_amphtml'); function prefix_remove_amphtml($amphtml){ return; }

// set noindex for AMP pages
$url = "//{$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']}{$_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"]}";
if (preg_match("#/amp/#", $url))
{
	header( "X-Robots-Tag: noindex, follow", true );
}

Bagaimana cara memeriksa status Noindex AMP?

Inilah cara mudahnya –

  1. Pergi ke Google.com
  2. Cari seperti https://www.gulshankumar.net/id/*/amp/

Setelah mengikuti proses di atas, Anda harus tetap mengaktifkan plugin AMP Anda sampai Anda melihat 0 halaman AMP yang terindeks di Penelusuran.

Hal yang Harus Dilakukan Setelah 7 hari ketika halaman AMP noindex selesai

✅ Bagaimana cara menonaktifkan AMP yang mengganggu sebagai pengguna? 🤔

Gunakan browser Firefox dan jangan gunakan browser seluler Google Chrome.

✅ Bagaimana cara mencegah menampilkan 404 kesalahan untuk halaman AMP di Google SERP?

Anda mungkin melakukan kesalahan dengan hanya menonaktifkan plugin dengan harapan AMP tidak akan muncul di Google. Itu bukan cara yang tepat. Anda perlu menghapus tag amphtml dari kode sumber dan noindex halaman AMP.

✅ Apa saja alasan utama yang harus saya hindari menggunakan Google AMP?

AMP menghancurkan desain halaman web. Ini meningkatkan pekerjaan ekstra yang dapat Anda investasikan dengan lebih baik dalam hal-hal produktif lainnya seperti menulis artikel dan menghasilkan uang.

✅ Apakah AMP meningkatkan PageSpeed? 🚀

Lebih baik membuat halaman yang benar-benar lebih cepat daripada mengandalkan beberapa plugin karena dapat memiliki bug dan masalah keamanan.

✅ Apakah AMP merupakan Faktor Peringkat Google? 📈

Nah, tugas utama Google adalah menampilkan jawaban yang relevan untuk permintaan pencarian. Entah Anda menggunakan AMP atau tidak, itu tidak masalah. John dari Google telah secara resmi mengkonfirmasi bahwa hal ini bukanlah faktor peringkat.

✅ Berapa lama waktu yang dibutuhkan Google untuk noindexing semua halaman AMP?

Mungkin perlu beberapa minggu untuk memproses permintaan noindex.

  10. Hi Bro,

    I have done it above section post, and suceesfully done it on my website.

    I like to know after Amp pages removed successfully

    1) Shall i remove Amp Plugins Completely ?

    2) And also shall i remove the Real-Time Find and Replace Plugin also in plugin section ?

    Can you clarify the above two doubts bro ?

    Thank you

    Balas
  11. Hello,

    Yes, you can remove both plugin – AMP and Real time Find and Replace; once AMP pages successfully get Noindexed from the Search Engine.

    Later just for normal user, if you wish you can setup redirect from AMP to Non-AMP pages to prevent from simple 404 hits on AMP. It’s not compulsory.

  12. Hi Gulshan,

    Thanks for your informative blog! I have done the steps mentioned above, I’m currently in a waiting game with Google to de-index the AMP pages.

    How would I know if all the pages were de-indexed completely? Just webmaster tools? Can I disable the Mobile redirection while waiting for Google to de-index the AMP pages?

    Balas
  13. Hi,

    thanks for your tutorial!

    Yesterday I removed AMP completely from my site. To be fair, it brought a lot of traffic, but in the end the monetarization is really bad.

    I hope it will not impact my traffic that much, but maybe I’m happier now with my beautiful RESPONSIVE theme.

    • Hey sahil,
      AMP provide a light version of your website, as you know loading speed is a very important factor for ranking and because it increases loading speed then surely it will affect your rankings.

      P.S. : AMP sites are also given priority by Google.

      Thanks.

      Balas
  14. Hi Gulshan, I wish I found this blog post earlier before disabling the amp plugin. I disabled it and let the google bot cache the 404 pages of the non existing amp pages because that is what is suggested by google when I read the in developers.google.com. The problem now is my ranking dropped and googlebot slows down on crawling the site. I reinstalled the amp plugin again to see if the ranking will go back again. Do you think what I did is right? Do you have any tips on how to bring back my ranking? Thanks in advance.

    Balas
    • Hi Manny,

      I think, Your ranking dropped because you followed a single wrong step which was – removing AMP plugin directly. You could have noindex your AMP pages gracefully. If Google list 10 search results for any query, you remove AMP plugin, what will happen? User will simply land to error 404 page. They will pick another result. Eventually, ranking will drop.

      That’s why I say, never ever directly remove plugin or even try to setup any kind of redirect – because it will NOT work.

      Instead, focus on noindexing AMP pages properly, if you don’t want to loose ranking and traffics.

      What you can do right now? Let me highlight some points
      Step 1. Keep installed AMP for WP Plugin, till AMP pages are not noindexed automatically by Google.
      Step 2. Set noindex using meta tag in the plugin settings
      Step 3. Remove rel=”ampthtml” link as I described above.
      Step 4. Wait at least a week. Keep eye on the AMP status via Search Console.
      Step 5. Update your site regularly, this will encourage Googlebot to crawl regularly.
      Step 6. Once AMP is noindexed, and you don’t see any AMP results for your website in the mobile serps, then feel free to remove AMP plugin, do whatever you want. But, don’t remove AMP without properly noindexing.

      Hopefully, you will recover your ranking back.

      Thanks & Regards,
      Gulshan

  15. hello sir i have noticed that your blog image is only 13 kb when its size is 713*429. but when i creat a jpg image even 300*200 its is more than 50kb . please give me some tips to reduce image size.

    Balas
  16. Hi Anoop,

    To keep image size in the control,
    * Do not use many colors
    * Choose right format such as PNG for illustration, JPG for real image
    * After then, I prefer to compress using ShortPixel or TinyPNG.

    I hope this helps.

  17. Thanks Gulshan for this great tutorial !!

    Google took 20 days to no-index all my AMP URL’s.

    Today I redirected all AMP URL’s to Non-AMP URL’s by following your htaccess method.

    They are working fine. Thanks.

    Balas
  18. Thanks for posting this excellent tutorial. I followed your instructions and I think I’m heading in the right direction as far as disabling AMP is concerned. I had just 1 AMP page indexed to begin with … it seems like the AMP for WP plugin was generating tons of errors in Search Console all along and for that reason Google could not index any AMP pages.

    This is what I had yesterday:

    Indexed AMP pages: 1
    AMP pages with critical issues: 3152

    And today I have:

    Indexed AMP pages: 0
    AMP pages with critical issues: 1756

    I deactivated the AMP for WP plugin after seeing 0 Indexed pages but what concerns me is that in Search Console it is still showing AMP pages with critical issues: 1756. Why do you think that is? If no pages are indexed, It should have been 0 right?

    Not sure if I deactivated the plugin too quickly?

    Also, after deactivating the plugin when I go to

    http://www.example.com/amp/

    it takes me to the main page of my website but in the URL bar I can still see

    http://www.example.com/amp/

    instead of only

    http://www.example.com/

    ?? Why do you think that might be?

    This was the case before I set up redirection in my .htaccess following your instructions… and it is still doing the same thing after the redirection code has been implemented …

    Do you have any idea why this might be happening?

    Thanks again for your thoughts.

    Best,

  19. Thank you so much for this evergreen content. You have saved me the stress of trying to enable Adsense ads and other affiliate ads on my AMP blog. I just finished following the instruction above.

Hope it won’t affect my traffic after resubmitting my sitemap.

  20. Hello, thank you for your great tutorials. I think this is the best article I’ve found so far since I am a beginner.

    I noticed that I made a mistake by directly deactiving and removing the plugin without considering your steps above. Will it affect on my website’s performance?

    Then how could I fix the errors I found on the Google Console about the AMP errors after I deleted the plugin?

    I would be very happy if you are willing to help me.

    Thanks a bunch for the step by step guide, but i think i might need some extra help.

    I currently have many canonical pages indexed, and after installing AMP for wordpress, 95 of them are now indexed as AMP pages on only mobile serps.
    How do I deindex the amp version only? While keeping the canonical versions indexed?

    Here’s how i put myself in this position –
    1. Installed Amp for WordPress, not AMP for WP (not sure if this make a difference)
    2. After 5 days, now 95 pages on only mobile serps are indexed, which decreased traffic by alot
    3. I deactivated and deleted plugin from wordpress without doing much research which was stupid

    Then I followed your steps above:
    1. Removed rel=”amphtml” using plugin
    2. Installed AMP for WP plugin, not the AMP for WordPress plugin which i originally installed (not sure if this makes a difference)
    3. Input

      1. You must add suggested noindex meta tag in head. This will hint Google you don’t want to show AMP.
      2. Last, we need to rel="amphtml" markup from head to cut the link of AMP from the non-amp pages. There are many ways to do this. Either enable dev mode, use Real Time Find Replace or snippet. However you do, it’s important.

      Day 7
      3. Now, you should add redirect from AMP to Non-AMP pages. (This is not mandatory, optionally recommended to avoid 404 for the old AMP slug).

      • Thank you for this. AMP “seemed” like a great idea for a client at first. However, after AMP started to show more than the original page, ad revenues dropped, and this is not ideal. Hopefully, Google figures out another way because this is worse.

  52. Hello Gulshan,

    I was using newspaper theme with their inbuilt AMP plugin and mobile theme.

    After removing AMP i installed wp for amp and followed both steps

    I have enabled “Change End Point to ?amp”
    And in advanced settings,entered HTML in Head as you mentioned.

    My questions are:

    After that do I need to disable amp ads in Adsense?

    When should I deactivate amp for wp plugin? after 7 days?

    Balas
    • 1. To avoid losing Advt revenue, you can keep AMP ads as long AMP for WP plugin is active for the noindex process.
      2. Yes, after 7 days or when AMP version page doesn’t appear in the SERPs.

  53. Hi Gulshan,

    Thank you for giving me some solid reasons to remove AMP from my website, which I really wanted to do so.

    I’ve removed the AMP from my website successfully without any errors or problems!

    Here’s a #tip for others wanting to remove AMP easily:

    1. Open the AMP’s Pluging Settings.
    2. Switch to Supported Templates tab.
    3. Now, uncheck all the “Content types enabled for AMP” options.
    3. Hit the save button.

    What will happen then?

    Unchecking to all will set up a permanent 301 redirect of AMP-enabled pages to Non-AMP pages, and that happens without any errors.

    What do next?

    Just wait for some days when you find your Search Console shows 0 AMP pages indexed.

    Then disable the AMP plugin from your WordPress website.

    And that’s all!

    I hope this helps you!

    Thanks and regards!

  54. Hey, i am stuck in between as I don’t know where I can add the code you provided to add in the CODE SNIPPET plugin. I’ve installed the plugin and can see 5 options: Example HTML shortcode, Example CSS Snippet,Example JavaScript snippet, Order snippets by name , Order snippets by date.
    Can you briefly explain where can i add the code?

    Balas
      • In HTML section.
        Also can you tell me why is the code snippet plugin used?
        Can I use redirection in place of that?
        Also thankyou for the help 🙂

        Balas
        • Not in HTML section. In fact, you can delete all those examples code which comes by default. It is just a demo by Code Snippet. Not useful.

          For noindexing AMP pages, you can place code snippet this way – https://i.imgur.com/RSCgjj9.png

          I do not suggest redirection. You can do [only] once AMP pages are gone.

          Balas
          • Thanks. So, should I delete the redirection plugin directly?
            Also, when can I delete the Code Snippet plugin? after one week or never?

          • There is no role of Redirection at the moment.
            You can delete Code Snippet plugin after deactivating AMP plugin after one week.

          • Thanks for the help.
            I have added the code. Can you tell me what now should I do, I have completed all the steps but can’t see any changes? And can I delete the code snippet plugin when the amp will be completely removed?

  55. Thank you for your post. Are there any other settings in AMP that need to be clicked other than the Dev? For example, I noticed on te Search Result Page in AMP and Category Description are set to ON. Should they be?

    Balas
  56. Hey, i tried removing the amp for the site. I noticed that the amp pages are not decreasing in the past few days.

  57. Hello sir,
    In fact I have tried AMP plugin for 2 times, but as it was giving error in Google Search Console. I removed it by deactivating it. But didn’t followed these mentioned steps. Do I have to install it once again. As such I don’t want AMP version of my blog.

    Thanks in advance!

    • Hi Akhilesh,
      Thanks for your comment at my Remove AMP article.

      May I know, what is the error message in your Search Console? So I can help you out.

      Thanks & Regards,

      • Hi,
        There are 3 errors showed in GSC which are being shared respectively-
        1. Only amp-boilerplate and amp-custom ‘style’ tags are allowed, and only in the document head.
        2. Custom JavaScript is not allowed.
        3. Disallowed attribute or attribute value present in HTML tag.

        Since I am not too much technically sound about reasons why errors which are being showed in Google Search console are displayed. So I just gets them disabled.

        Thanks in advance!

  60. Hi Gulshan. Great article you have here.

    I’ve done removing rel=”amphtml” and add nofollow meta tag.

    But i have one doubt. My site is using 404 to 301 plugin, is it alright if i install Redirection plugin right away?

    Do these two plugins will conflict with each other or not?

    Balas
    • Avoid nofollow, use noindex as per article. Cannot say anything about 404 to 301 that’s a different thing and not recommended.

  61. I switched my blog for amp few months ago. After a months I deleted plugin without thinking of SEO. It hurt my blog on SERP. Very bad experience. Your detailed post will help people not to take risks as I did with my blog.

  62. Hi Gulshan, I’ve tried the tutorial on this post, and it works perfectly.

    But i has a little problem: out of 200 AMP pages, there’s still 7 pages that has deindexed yet.

    Pic: https://i.ibb.co/w0ngTjT/IMG-20210813-090834.jpg

    I’ve waiting for 1 month, but the number still same.

    Here is the question.

    1. Is this normal?
    2. Is it alright if i delete AMP for WP plugin now?
    3. Do i need to redirect those 7 pages using Redirection plugin?

    I wanna hear your advises.

    • Hi Alfiant, Please give it sometime. There is no side-affect of leave AMP plugin for a while when noindex is process is underway. Thanks!

  63. This article is totally confusing. You need to elaborate; you need to explain more. You understand what needs to be done, but you’re explaining it terribly.

    • Please read article more than once, maybe twice or thrice. I am sure, you will be able to understand.
      All steps are clearly written in seperated heading. Feel free to ask if you’ve any specific question. I am always ready to help.

  64. Thank you so much for this article! easy to read and understand for average webmaster. This really help me when I want to remove this AMP headache.

    Balas
  65. Thanks this has been a very helpful guide! I disabled AMP and found that I lost traffic because I no longer appeared on google Discover. Turns out this was feeding me about 15-20% of my traffic. However, leaving AMP has increased my ad earnings quite substantially so I think I am ahead from an earnings POV. However, I really wish there was a way to enable AMP specifically to appear on Google Discover. Any suggestions?

    Balas
  66. Thanks for the valuable tips. Followed the steps under “Recommended method for AMP for WP Users”. Now no AMP indexed pages on Search Console (it took 3 weeks to go them away). But on Google searches some AMP pages appear. Example:
    https://example.com › blog1 › amp › page
    What to do next?
