    I am one of those people criticizing Google’s AMP project, not surprised at all.

    So the conspiracy theorists were right for once! lol I tried but rejected AMP years ago because it, well, sucked. One blogger said, “Forget AMP and just make your site load fast.” That’s what I did, and it worked.

    “The complaint also alleges that Facebook and Google colluded to manipulate header bidding auctions, among many other anticompetitive practices.”

    The evil duopoly must be broken up! That more outrage doesn’t exist is a sad commentary on today’s world.

    Google presents itself as a benevolent company. But that only serves to tighten their grip on the entire web. AMP is just one example.

    That Faustian bargain is something web designers and site owners deal with every day. Do things the Google way or be punished with poor rankings.

    Sure, they have some great products. But no company should wield this kind of influence over an open platform.

    It is great that the community is turning against AMP. I’ve been critical of WordPress’ involvement for some time.
    In fact my reviews of the official AMP were deleted and I was put on probation.

    An engineer at my own hosting provider told me AMP was no good more than a year ago.

    I deleted the plug-in a few weeks ago and suddenly saw a big bump in revenue. Perhaps that’s a coincidence, but it’s one hell of a coincidence.
