AMP uitschakelen in WordPress op een SEO-vriendelijke manier

Het Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) Project is een open source initiatief dat beweert de mobiele gebruikerservaring te verbeteren. De implementatie van AMP is niet eenvoudig. Er zijn veel potentiële problemen die ontstaan na het gebruik van AMP. Daarom is het beter om AMP zo snel mogelijk uit te schakelen.

  1. Verwijder de link rel="amphtml" van de niet-ampagina’s.
  2. Stel NOINDEX voor AMP-pagina’s

Voordat ik in technische uitleg spring met exacte stappen, wil ik u het volgende vertellen …

Waarom het verwijderen van AMP een goed idee is?

  • Vergeet even de uitspraak “Snelheid is een ranking factor“. Alleen een snelste mobiele site op het internet met een verschrikkelijk ontwerp is niet voldoende voor de groei van de blog. Wat geldwaarde en branding betreft, als je blog niet goed presteert door AMP, waarom zou je dan het risico nemen?
  • Stel je voor dat je 1000 pagina’s hebt, is het niet ingewikkeld om ervoor te zorgen dat alle AMP-pagina’s goed werken of niet? De Google Search Console toont beperkte informatie, die niet voldoende is voor een webmaster om de bruikbaarheid van AMP-pagina’s te analyseren.
  • AMP vergroot extra werk voor een blogger. Niet alle bloggers zijn technisch onderlegd. Ik moest elke webpagina controleren. Ik vond ergens een iframe van YouTube dat niet werkt, geen commentaarformulier, zelfs sommige HTML-code werkte niet in mijn auteursbox, enz. Inderdaad, AMP dwingt webmasters veel op te offeren.
  • Ik beschouw het gebruik van extra plugins als het uitnodigen van mogelijke bugs, veiligheidsproblemen en conflicten met andere plugins. Tot nu toe kon ik geen betrouwbare plugin voor AMP vinden.
  • Momenteel is AMP geen rankingfactor voor mobiele SERP’s. Ja, het kan geweldig, mind blowing voor een nieuws uitgever voor ranking onder de kop zogenaamde “Top Stories”. Maar hoe zit het met een nieuwe blog? Is het de moeite waard om het risico voor AMP te nemen?
AMP is not a ranking factor

Waarom ik AMP van mijn Blog heb verwijderd? – Grote redenen

Net na een paar dagen van het installeren van AMP plugin, had ik te maken met veel frustrerende problemen. Dus, ik was erg teleurgesteld en ik besloot om het te verwijderen. Hieronder zijn enkele links van opmerkelijke problemen.

Referentie: Lijst van problemen die ik ondervond met AMP voor WP plugin

  • 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

Zelfs, ik moest AMP problemen pagina voor pagina oplossen voor zover ik kon ontdekken –

  • Ik heb gemerkt dat in de AMP, Google AdSense niet goed presteert.
  • Wanneer je lange inhoudspagina’s hebt, wordt het vervelend om te controleren of elk webpagina-element goed werkt of niet. Ik was bang dat sommige van mijn iframes voor YouTube-video’s niet werkten. Uiteindelijk heb ik het ook opgelost door wat vereiste JS toe te voegen, voor een moment was het onbekend.

Hoe AMP-pagina’s voor WordPress uit te schakelen?

Gouden regels

Deactiveer niet zomaar een AMP-plugin en ga ervan uit dat je klaar bent.

Redirect niet van AMP naar Non-AMP permalinks wanneer AMP pagina’s nog steeds geïndexeerd zijn in SERPs. Anders krijgt je organische bezoeker een fout te zien.

AMP error
AMP Sucks op vele manieren en dit is een van hen hoe moeilijk het is om uit te stappen.

Concept achter de oplossing voor het uitschakelen van AMP zonder error 404

Zoals we weten ontdekt Googlebot AMP-pagina’s via de rel="amphtml" link in de header van de website.

Gelukkig heeft deze opmaak niets direct te maken met menselijke bezoekers. We kunnen hem dus verwijderen om de mensen bij Google, ik bedoel Googlebot, te vertellen dat we geen AMP-versie van de webpagina hebben. 🤷

Terwijl Google pagina’s de-indexeert, blijven wij tijdelijk AMP-pagina’s aan onze bezoekers serveren door onze AMP-plugin actief te houden.

Tijdens de discussie over dit hete hangijzer was de belangrijkste vraag in onze gedachten…

Wat als Google AMP-versie pagina’s beschouwt als dubbele URL voor canonical?

Natuurlijk zal dat zijn omdat we relatiemarkering hebben verwijderd. Op basis van dit concept raad ik ten zeerste aan om NOINDEX te gebruiken voor het verwijderen van AMP-pagina’s uit Google Search.

Om AMP-pagina’s goed uit te schakelen zonder de SEO te beïnvloeden, hoeft u slechts twee grote stappen te volgen:-

  1. Verwijder eerst de link rel="amphtml" op de niet-ampagina’s.
  2. NOINDEX instellen voor AMP-pagina’s

Interessant, nietwaar? Laten we stap voor stap de praktische details bekijken.

Aanbevolen methode voor AMP-gebruikers

AMP official
  • AMP-plugin deactiveren en verwijderen.
  • Installeren en activeren AMP voor WP plugin (Dit zal het proces vergemakkelijken)
  • Ga naar de geavanceerde instellingen van AMP voor WP
  • Schakel “Eindpunt wijzigen in ?amp” in om de AMP officiële plugin permalink structuur te herstellen.
  • Nogmaals in geavanceerde instellingen, zie je tekstgebied voor Enter HTML in Head ? Voer onderstaande code in.
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow"/>
  • Laatste, scroll naar beneden tot de laatste, activeer “Dev Mode in AMP“.
  • Houd deze status 7 dagen aan totdat alle AMP-pagina’s uit de SERP’s zijn verdwenen.

Aanbevolen methode voor AMP voor WP-gebruikers

amp for wp
  • AMP voor WP plugin installeren en activeren
  • Ga naar de geavanceerde instellingen van AMP voor WP
  • Ziet u tekstgebied voor Voer HTML in Head? Voer onderstaande code in om AMP niet te indexeren in SERP’s.
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow"/>
  • Scroll naar beneden, activeer “Dev Mode in AMP“.
  • Houd deze status 7 dagen aan totdat alle AMP-pagina’s uit de SERP’s zijn verdwenen.

Dat is alles. En, dit is de juiste SEO-vriendelijke manier om van AMP af te komen.

FYI: Wanneer u de dev-modus inschakelt, wordt automatisch rel=”amphtml” verwijderd. 😎


Oude methode voor AMP voor WP-gebruikers

Stap 1. Verwijder rel=”amphtml” uitgang van de kop

Met RegEx kun je de string matchen en vervangen door de gewenste waarde (die leeg is). Ik denk dat dit het gemakkelijkst is om rel="amphtml" te verwijderen uit de HTML-uitvoer van WordPress.

In eenvoudige woorden, met onderstaande slimme stappen scannen we AMP-markup in de HTML-pagina’s van WordPress, we verwijderen deze on the fly met behulp van Search & Replace via RegEx.

Regular Expressions
Gevalideerde reguliere expressies

Proces

Om de rel="amphtml" link uit de kop te verwijderen, ga je naar deze stappen.

  1. Installeer en activeer een zeer nuttige plugin genaamd Real-Time Find and Replace. Met deze plugin kunt u dynamisch (d.w.z. op het moment dat een pagina wordt gegenereerd) code en tekst van thema’s en andere plugins vervangen door code en tekst van uw keuze voordat een pagina wordt afgeleverd aan de browser van een gebruiker.
    real time find and replace
  2. Ga naar Tools > Real-Time Find and Replace
    Real Time Find and Replace Settings
  3. Controleer Use Regex
  4. Typ in het veld Zoeken precies <link rel="amphtml" href="(.+)" >
  5. Laat het veld Vervangen leeg.
  6. Instellingen bijwerken. Dat is alles.
    remove AMP rel markup

Wij zijn de auteur dankbaar, deze plugin bespaart onze kostbare tijd.

Stap 2. NOINDEX instellen voor AMP-pagina’s

Dit is een belangrijke stap om indexering van dubbele inhoud te voorkomen, omdat we in de laatste stappen rel="amphtml" hebben verwijderd uit de header van de website.

  1. Open AMP voor WP plugin instellingen
  2. Ga naar SEO
  3. Voeg onderstaande meta code toe aan de head sectie
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow"/>
noindex amp

Dit proces zal de ranking van uw canonieke (Non-AMP) pagina’s niet beïnvloeden.

U kunt ook onderstaand fragment toevoegen met de Code Snippets plugin.

// 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 );
}

Hoe de Noindex status van AMP te controleren?

Hier is de gemakkelijke manier –

  1. Ga naar Google.com
  2. Zoeken zoals https://www.gulshankumar.net/nl/*/amp/

Na het volgen van bovenstaand proces, moet je je AMP plugin geactiveerd houden tot je 0 geïndexeerde AMP pagina’s ziet in de Search.

Dingen te doen na 7 dagen wanneer AMP-pagina’s noindex voltooien

✅ Hoe schakel je als gebruiker vervelende AMP uit? 🤔

Gebruik de browser Firefox en niet de mobiele browser Google Chrome.

✅ Hoe voorkom ik dat er 404-fouten worden getoond voor AMP-pagina’s in Google SERP’s?

Je hebt waarschijnlijk verkeerd gedaan door gewoon de plugin te deactiveren in de hoop dat nu AMP niet in Google zal verschijnen. Dat is geen goede manier. Je moet amphtml tag uit de broncode verwijderen en AMP pagina’s niet indexeren.

✅ Wat zijn enkele belangrijke redenen om Google AMP niet te gebruiken?

AMP vernietigt het ontwerp van webpagina’s. Het verhoogt extra werk dat je beter kunt investeren in andere productieve zaken zoals het schrijven van artikelen en geld verdienen.

✅ Verbetert AMP PageSpeed? 🚀

Het is beter om de pagina zelf sneller te maken dan te vertrouwen op een of andere plugin, omdat die bugs en veiligheidsproblemen kan hebben.

✅ Is AMP een Google Ranking Factor? 📈

De belangrijkste taak van Google is om een relevant antwoord op een zoekopdracht te geven. Het maakt niet uit of je AMP gebruikt of niet. John van Google heeft officieel bevestigd dat het geen ranking factor is.

✅ Hoe lang kan Google erover doen om alle AMP-pagina’s te noindexeren?

Het kan enkele weken duren om noindex-aanvragen te verwerken.

  8. Hi,

    • 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.

      Beantwoorden
  9. 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.

    Beantwoorden
    • 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

  12. 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.

    Beantwoorden
  13. 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,

  14. 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.

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

    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.

    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?

    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

  38. I am looking to remove the ampforwp plugin, found this helpful article. Thanks, Gulshan for an informative article. But, here comes the actual issue, I have also found an article from the actual plugin authors at their website to remove their own plugin. The difference is have found is that your article suggests adding the code in the “Enter HTML in Head” section present in the advanced section of the plugin. But the author’s article shows that to add the code in the SEO section present in plugin. Their article does not mention enabling the dev mode. I am a bit confused now on which article to follow. I don’t want to have any issues on removing amp. What do you suggest?

    Beantwoorden
    • To properly remove AMP,
      Day 1
      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).

      Beantwoorden
      • 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.

    • 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.

  41. 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!

  42. 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?

    Beantwoorden
      • 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 🙂

        Beantwoorden
        • 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.

          Beantwoorden
          • 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?

  43. 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?

      • 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!

  48. 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?

  50. 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.

  51. 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.

  52. 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?

    Beantwoorden
  53. 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?
