Did you know? More than 49% of live visitors expect a web page to load within 2 seconds. Core Web Vitals (CWV) focuses on three aspects of the user experience:

  • Loading measured by Largest Contentful Paint (LCP),
  • Interactivity measured by First Input Delay (FID), and
  • Visual stability measured by Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS).

  <link rel="canonical" href="">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,minimum-scale=1">
  <style amp-boilerplate>
-webkit-animation:-amp-start 8s steps(1,end) 0s 1 normal both;
-moz-animation:-amp-start 8s steps(1,end) 0s 1 normal both;
-ms-animation:-amp-start 8s steps(1,end) 0s 1 normal both;

@-webkit-keyframes -amp-start{from{visibility:hidden}to{visibility:visible}}
@-moz-keyframes -amp-start{from{visibility:hidden}to{visibility:visible}}
@-ms-keyframes -amp-start{from{visibility:hidden}to{visibility:visible}}

  <script async src=""></script>
<body>Hello, Showeblogin Readers.</body>

That means, your blogger blog theme must include the above required HTML code for publishing valid AMP blogger pages, posts, widgets and comments.

First of all go to the template editor. Theme⇒ Edit HTML and then follow these step-by-step implementation guide. If you implement AMP for your blog, your blog will run faster than ever.

Step-1 (Change HTML):

The mandatory attribute ‘⚡’ is missing in tag ‘html’. This error can be resolved by simply adding the 'amp' tag attribute to the tag. To make your blog AMP friendly, find and replace <html> code with the following code:

<html amp='amp'>

The above code will change your both mobile as well as desktop blogger theme to AMP based theme. However, if you does not want to convert your desktop theme to AMP then use this code just before/above <head> tag.

<b:attr cond='data:blog.isMobileRequest == &quot;true&quot;' name='amp' value='amp'/>

The above code only change your mobile (m=1) theme to AMP HTML as I have added the condition for mobile only theme.

Step-2 (Change Charset and Viewport):

Check for the for the charset and viewport meta tags in your blog template editor. If not present, copy and paste the following code after <head>.

<meta charset="utf-8"><meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,minimum-scale=1,initial-scale=1">

Step-3 (Canonical link):

Make your blog discoverable using canonical tag. Now, Google uses AMP version of webpage as a signal for SEO ranking. Check for the for the canonical link tags.

If not present, add the canonical link which will simply point to itself. Copy and paste the following code after the viewport tag as updated above in step-2 for blogger amp.

<link expr:href='data:blog.url' rel='canonical'/>

Note that if you are using default blogger theme then there is no need to add the above canonical rel tag.

Step-4 (Change HEAD):

Thereafter, find and replace </head> code with the following code and make your blog mobile friendly by AMP:

amp-boilerplate='amp-boilerplate'>body{-webkit-animation:-amp-start 8s steps(1,end) 0s 1 normal both;-moz-animation:-amp-start 8s steps(1,end) 0s 1 normal both;-ms-animation:-amp-start 8s steps(1,end) 0s 1 normal
both;animation:-amp-start 8s steps(1,end) 0s 1 normal both}@-webkit-keyframes
<script async='async' src=''></script>

Step-5 (Change Image Tag):

Normally, we use <img> tag for image but in AMP you have to use amp-img instead of only img. Therefore, change the img tags into amp-img tags like the following example:

<amp-img src="AmpImage.jpg" alt="amp-img" height="500" width="500"></amp-img>

How to check AMP pages validity?

Open your AMP page in Chrome browser, for example –

Append “#development=1” to the URL, for example –

Right click and open the Chrome DevTools console and check for validation errors.

Open the web interface at

Enter the url value to the URL field, for example –

Any changes to the html source made in this interactive editor result in interactive revalidation.
