 My developers and I have spent too much time and money, and we cannot get my Homepage to render properly. We give up.

Please refund my purchase ASAP.

Thank you, Ted (949) 302-4702

Hi

You did not ask for any support at all? It's very common that the home page is not AMP depending on the feature it uses and that is very fine. What's your website?

No problem refunding, simply I have found that many people may not be using AMP the way it's supposed to be used and so put a lot of burden on themselves.

Best regards

Hi,

 

Yes, I was so disappointed in my developer and his team.  What kind of support do you offer in cases like this?

 

If any.  Thanks, Ted

Hi

We can offer custom work but to be honest first is to look at the site and the kind of issue you're facing. With AMP, there are many things that you simply do not need to get into such as trying to convert all pages or convert everything. AMP is an SEO and marketing tool so developers get involved only at a later stage when decisions have been made on what you want/need to do first.

Can you provide a link?

Best regards

Yes, thank you very much.  I understand all too well. 

 

In the last 3 years of this particular site project, and experiencing over a half dozed developers I’ve hired that range from $40/hr to $120/hr…. I haven’t met one yet that didn’t do more damage than good.

 

As far as “SEOs”… well, we all know that that is a verb, not a person.  Unless of course one is willing to actually pay someone who will happily take their money and offer absolutely no value whatsoever.  Great work for sociopaths of today where you can be anything you say you are regardless of reality.

 

I figure if you guys don’t know what best practices are, then probably no one else will either.

 

Thank you for your consideration!

Hi

Sounds like some pretty real-life website owner experience here :)

OK, I took a quick look and can comment as follow with respect to an AMP implementation on your site:

1 - I would want to have AMP version of:

- the shop product pages and category pages - looks like a WooCommerce implementation
- Related products should be included - is this a standard WooCommerce related plugin implementation?
- all the content under CBD Info, About and News

The home page does not seem that important, I'm not sure what's problem it's been causing either.
For WooCommerce, here is what we can get out of the box: https://demo.weeblrpress.com/woocommerce/amp
2 - Important: the Become a member widget will have to be implemented. Looks like a standard Mailchimp plugin implementation (yes?). If using the Mailchimp plugin, that's should be ok.

3 - Any other feature that you deem important to have for your mobile visitors?

4 - Now as for the styling, it's important to know where to stop. What matters is that visitors transitioning from an AMP page to a standard HTML page (for checking out for instance) "feels" at home so you'd need:

- change logo and have a gradient green image as you currently have
- select general colors for most content

5 - Do you see any other feature/details that you think would matter to also have on the AMP version?

Best regards

Yep!

 

Following are my answers to your questions:

 

1)      Yes, I use WooCommerce… standard?  Not sure, but I imagine so.  I’m not sure of a non-standard option, nor what it actually means.

2)      In short, we couldn’t get my mobile Homepage to look proper.  It was all wonky and had Text layered over text, which also blocked my hamburger menus, etc.  And the rest of #2 I do not understand, but as I’ve stated, I use multiple WooCommerce plugins.

3)      Yes, my Product Reviews which is a main component of my site (under Product Reviews tab on Main Menu.

4)      Ok, can you help me with that?

5)      I’m not sure.  I thought the entire site (all pages) would be candidates for AMP.  I’m not a developer, so I’m afraid I just don’t know, so I’m looking for help. 

 

Otherwise, I’ll just have to cancel because I can get any use from it.  It is currently deactivated.

 

Any ideas?

 

Ted

Hi

1) Yes, I use WooCommerce… standard? Not sure, but I imagine so. I’m not sure of a non-standard option, nor what it actually means.
It means that some of the output or features have been custom coded in your theme by your developer for instance.

2) In short, we couldn’t get my mobile Homepage to look proper.
I would not AMP your home page, there's no real point doing that, at least if it requires effort to do so. AMP is a trade-off thing: you get some benefits but they have a cost, mostly in development effort. If the benefits are not worths the cost then you don't do it. Your home page is a general page, not focused on a specific product. Good if you can AMP it, not a priority at all if you can't.

AMP is NOT meant to replace your mobile site, it's a complement used in search results.

3) Yes, my Product Reviews which is a main component of my site (under Product Reviews tab on Main Menu.
They look like regular articles right? And at the bottom of the page, those are regular WordPress comments? or do you use a specific comment plugin?
If regular posts/page using regular WP commenting system, they'll be fine.

4) Ok, can you help me with that?
We can quote for basic styling with the understanding that in no way the goal is to reproduce your site. That is NOT the goal of AMP at all.

I thought the entire site (all pages) would be candidates for AMP.
Your entire site is candidate for AMP if you are willing to cover the development cost. That would not make sense to me, there is no point and no expected benefit in making the entire site AMP. I have listed above the scope of a what I think is a sensible AMP implementation on your site.

It is currently deactivated.
Can you please enable it back? Would be best to evaluate issues. It should be set to "Development" mode prior to enbling so that Search engines are not aware of the existence of the AMP version and don't try to index or otherwise use it. We're then free to look at things on the AMP page as long as we want. This is done on the plugin main settings page:



Best regards
