Web users expect instant gratification to do just about everything online — read, watch, purchase, etc., and fast-loading pages are a significant factor in making that all happen. For digital marketers like you, providing a positive user experience and generating conversions is key as well, especially on mobile. To help with that, the AMP framework was born in 2016.
AMP adoption has steadily increased since then and in May 2018, we introduced our own AMP builder in Instapage. The feature allowed marketers to build AMP-compliant pages in minutes. It is the first of its kind in the industry, but we knew it wasn’t “complete,” so to speak. So today, we are pleased to add two key components.
What’s new with the Instapage AMP builder
Starting today, Instapage users with AMP access can:
- Publish AMP landing pages to WordPress
- A/B test AMP landing pages
This article walks you through the necessary steps to publish your AMP landing pages to WordPress and create A/B tests in the Instapage builder.

Once you’re satisfied with the page design, click “Publish” and the builder will perform the AMP validation process. This part lets you know whether or not the page exceeds the 50kb CSS stylesheet limit:
Once validated, you can select the WordPress publishing option:
Install and sign in to the Instapage plugin on your website and publish your new AMP landing page to WordPress:
AMP A/B Testing
To create an A/B test, follow the same steps you did above for WordPress publishing (create a page, select AMP page, and name your page). Then, in the builder click the “Create an A/B Test” option and add a new variation. You can either add a new variation or import a variation:
With the new variation, you have the option to duplicate, pause, rename, transfer, or delete at any time:
