In this post, I have found and listed some best free online AMP validator tools that you can use to protect your amp pages for errors. Here these online tools take AMP URL of your web pages from you and check. If there are some errors, then these websites will list them and you can analyze those errors, and fix them with the help of web developers. Apart from taking URL of an AMP page, these websites can also take the MP directly and then check it for errors and show them to you. You can keep testing Amp pages until there is no error left.
MP pages are created to enhance User experience of websites on mobile devices. They are super-fast pages which load in just single tab. You can find empty pages on Google search results page, especially from typical blog and news website. But they only appear on mobile devices and the following specific HTML markup syntax which makes them different from the regular HTML. And to have a perfectly balanced AMP page, its code must be error free. And that is what the tools I have added here will help you achieve. You can test your MP page before pushing them into the live website.
