This is really a support question on your input on AMP pages or recommendations on faster load times.
My boss and his client really like the them that you provided that I made a sample on to try and update their current site.
I realize that with heavy aesthetic functionality here there is a sacrifice in speed optimizations which I am now looking into. I have looked into the topic of AMP. It looks to be quite complex.
I was wondering if you had any recommendations on speed optimizations?
Best and Thanks...
There are several reasons why the site might be slowed down. It could be image sizes, plugins that are installed, etc.
What you can do, and what we usually suggest, is to try to use caching plugin which will decrease initial response - for example W3 Total Cache https://wordpress.org/plugins/w3-total-cache/.
Of course, there might be other reasons for slower loading, and you can find solutions in the following articles - 5 Quick Ways to Speed Up Your WordPress Site, and The Ultimate Guide to Boost WordPress Speed & Performance.
Regarding amp, you need to have AMP plugin installed – https://wordpress.org/plugins/amp/ once you do, just add suffix /amp/ to any post url and you will get the amp version. For example – http://newstar.bold-themes.com/magazine/2018/01/09/10-best-pieces-of-career-advice-for-millennials/amp/
