  1. any indication for it actually working?
    I mean the code is there- but tag assistant doesn’t see it.
    and there is a rumour going around duplicate content etc…
    where can i find additional info?

    1. Hi John,

      The Google Tag assistant does not detect the AMP pages because it does run with Javascript and AMP doesn’t allow it to do.

      But that doesn’t mean that its not working. It will still work perfectly.

      Regards,
      Ahmed

    1. Hi Infotel,

      It has been blocked by the CORS policy. Cors Policy allows on your server if you don’t know how to do this then contact your hosting company they will fix this issue.

  5. My AMP is no longer tracking GA on my mobile pages. I don’t know because the problem started after I updated the AMP plugin.
