Glue for Yoast SEO & AMP


Google is currently working on the “Accelerated Mobile Pages” or AMP project. The WordPress AMP plugin provides the technical implementation of the AMP specifications. This makes sure that your pages contain valid AMP code.

The Yoast SEO: AMP Glue plugin integrates Yoast SEO into your AMP pages. This makes sure your meta-data is implemented correctly.

Next to the technical SEO improvements, the Yoast SEO: AMP Glue plugin also provides a simple way to customize your AMP pages.
It adds rudimental styling in the form of colors and link styles, so your AMP pages can maintain the feeling your main pages have.
To change your AMP page design, go to SEO -> AMP, and look at the design tab.


  • Example AMP page, design changed with this plugin.
  • Post type support in the plugin.
  • Design settings in the plugin.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/yoast-seo-amp directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Go to SEO -> AMP to change your design and enable custom post types.
  4. You’re done.

Be careful when buying! I was going to purchase the single SEO plugin, but they advertised a discount with their other plugins. I figured I'd give it a try and if I didn't like the others I would use their 30 day refund and just buy the SEO plugin again instead. Well it turns out that the bundle is really a disguised "subscription" which isn't included in their money back guarantee. The plugins weren't all that helpful but now I'm out $200 that I can't get back. Customer support refused to let me get a refund and buy just the SEO plugin instead...

1. The plugin is outdated and only applies to the basic version of AMP which is now called Reader or Classic. 2.The plugin needs updating inline with the three methods of serving AMP using the official AMP plugin, which are Native, Transitional and Reader. (Basic AMP has different icon requirements, for example, the small round icon.) 3. It would surely make more sense to incorporate this plugin with Yoast as a feature, rather than have a separate plugin? 4. Including the AMP publisher logo would help cover all the bases, as currently the plugin isn't as useful as it should be. It's doing half a job! 5. Taking the above into consideration, the plugin isn't that helpful and a few tweaks would see a vast improvement and lessen the likelihood of notifications from Google Search Console for error in required structured data markup, etc. Google is much stricter with AMP requirements so Yoast will be doing people a favor if they take some time out to bring this plugin up to date.
