If you’ve removed an Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) plugin from your WordPress website, you may need to redirect all the old /amp/ URLs back to the original, non-AMP URL.

The best way to do this is to:

Step 1: Download and install the free Redirection Plugin from the WordPress plugin repository.


Step 2: Once installed and activated, go to Tools –> Redirection to access the plugin.


Step 3: Click ‘Add New’ at the top of the screen.


Step 4: Fill out the following fields:

Redirect all /amp/ URLs in WordPress with Redirection plugin

Source URL: ^/(.*)\/amp

URL Options: Tick REGEX (very important, won’t work without this.)

Query Parameters: Exact Match in any Order

Target URL:$1

Note: I shouldn’t need to say this, but make sure you replace with your actual website URL

Group: Redirections


Step 5: Click ‘Add Redirect’ and it should work perfectly.

This will blanket redirect all AMP URLs back to the original non-AMP URL across the whole website.


Not using WordPress? Redirect /amp/ with the .haccess file

You can also do this using the .htaccess file if you aren’t running WordPress.

Here is a quick guide on removing /amp/ using the .htaccess file.

Only advanced users should modify their .htaccess file. If you are unsure, send a support ticket to your hosting company and ask them to implement this for you.
