Google Search Console Adds AMP Error Report
A new report was added to the Google Search Console under the Search Appearance tab for AMP errors.
AMP is designed to make web pages faster to load for users by slimming down a lot elements users need to download when visiting a web page. AMP has been adopted as a protocol by Google, Twitter and many other organizations and publishers. Google is launching AMP for their mobile results next month.
To help webmasters deploy error-free AMP web pages, Google has added an error report designed for AMP publishers in the Google Search Console. Google said the “AMP error report gives an overview of the overall situation on your site, and then lets you drill down to specific error types and URLs… This process helps you quickly find the most common issues, so that you can systematically address them in your site’s AMP implementation (potentially just requiring tweaks in the templates or plugin used for these pages).”
Here is a screen shot of the report:
