Moving from AMP to Non-AMP


(Rishabh Sharma) #1

Currently I have AMP on my site but the UI is looking very poor. Im thinking to move from AMP to Non-AMP will it create any issue? Will google automatically change them into normal pages once I deactivate the AMP plugin?

Is it required to use AMP plugin on our website?

Since most of your pages will be like, it might create some issues after you disable the plugin or like totally deactivating AMP on your blog. You can use this .htaccess code for redirection:

#Redirect AMP URLs

RewriteRule (.*)/AMP$ $1 [NC,R=301,L]

UPDATED: If this is not working, do kindly try this:

RewriteRule ^(.*)/amp$ $1 [R=301,L]

It wont give any error, right? Google will recrawl it and show the links at the same rankings?

I’m not completely sure about this, but I think this ‘activating/deactivating’ AMP won’t cause any issues to your existing rankings bro.

Do I need to add only RewriteRule (.*)/AMP$ $1 [NC,R=301,L] in htacess file?

Yes, that should help with the redirection… do let me know if you are facing any issues. :slight_smile:
