23% Of Google Top Stories URLs Are Not AMP

At the beginning of this month I reported that 12% of Google’s top stories carousel URLs were not AMP pages. Well, now, about 20 days later, we are up to 23% of the top stories carousel URLs are not AMP pages.

John Shehata said on Twitter “Almost 23% of all Top Stories URLs in the US are non-AMP URLs. This is a huge jump from last week. Similar numbers across the world.”

I suspect this trend will continue, espesially with the AMP logo dropping from the Google search results.
