Here are some notes from last week. Week 3 working on AMP.
Top Stories with AMP
Google has already taken AMP to the next level. “Top Stories with AMP” is a kind of enhanced AMP, so to speak. They will be shown as a carousel in Google Search results.
In order qualify for Top Stories, your AMP needs to meet some additional specs. It must have a Structured Data Markup that include the following mandatory information:
- An image at least 696 pixels wide
- Publisher information (including a logo no bigger than 600x60)
- Author. Although Google’s official guidelines require a type of schema.org/Person, I noticed schema.org/Organization also passes the Structured Data validation
- datePublished in ISO 8601 format
