There is a new report from RankRanger, a toolset that tracks Google results, shows that the AMP results that appear in the Google News section for mobile users have more than doubled in the past several days.

About a week ago, AMP content was showing in Google News for about 30 percent of the news results, but now it’s showing more than double in the Google News US-based mobile section at 70 percent of the news results returning AMP content.

According to Mordy Oberstein from RankRanger, “

[T]he number of AMP optimized news articles appearing within Google’s Top Stories on mobile has skyrocketed across the globe.”

RankRanger reported on January 25 that about 30 percent of mobile Google News box results in the US are showing as AMP.  On January 29, the number climbed to 70 percent.

Here is a chart showing the rollout and increase by country:

Is this a change or glitch in the algorithm?  Right now, it’s unclear.
