Google Improves Link Sharing from AMP Articles

Article Comments  

Feb 7, 2017, 8:09 AM   by Eric M. Zeman   @phonescooper

Google this week made it simpler for mobile device users to share AMP articles. AMP articles are specially formatted for viewing on mobile devices and load faster than standard web sites. The way Google delivers AMP articles to Google Search requires the use of headers in the URL. The headers, while necessary, extend the length of URLs and makes them awkward to share. Moving forward, articles displayed in the AMP view in Google Search on Android devices will include an anchor button that exposes the canonical URL for easier sharing. Users can long press the URL and then share it as they are used to via the browser's standard sharing tools. Google says this feature is rolling out to the Google Search app for Android in the days ahead. Further, Google says the Android Google app will be able to share the original URL when users tap on the app's share button, a feature already available to iOS devices, in the weeks ahead. Google Search is free to download from the App Store.
