I would like to become a Google News publisher to increase my search engine presence. I know there is a lot that goes into this but I want to discuss the AMP aspect of it.
After reading Google News support pages like [support.google.com
It doesn't indicate serving your pages as AMP is a requirement. It will take a fair bit of work on my site to be able to produce AMP pages so I want to make sure it is worth doing before I start out.
If you don't have an AMP page it seems to suggest I need a RSS feed (which we do) along with a news sitemap (which we can do).
If you don't have AMP (our site is mobile friendly) does Google take this into account and show your news article less?
Also after reading this [seroundtable.com
It makes me wonder if adding AMP support is worth it right now.
