Google Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), launched to the world this week, and itâ€™s got a big partner announcing support for the format today: WordPress.com.
Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, said today that itâ€™s enabling AMP by default for all WordPress blogs. That means that hosted WordPress users will get super-fast page loads when visitors come to their sites from Google results and they donâ€™t need to change anything.
Interested in tech, huh?

The idea behind AMP was to create an open-source framework that publishers could contribute to that would help speed up the mobile Web.
WordPress has also made a plugin available for self-hosted users that automatically converts content as well.
AMP is enabled by default for all WordPress.com users from today, and youâ€™ll start seeing speedy results in Google search resultsÂ with a small lightning bolt next to them to indicate that theyâ€™ll load faster.
