    I guess im starting this thread as a form of future proofing my sites. Im already hopping on the https band wagon even though im affraid of making a major change like that to my sites for fear something might break.

    But these mobile first pages are looking like they may become a factor relatively soon, also speeding your site at that level is huge. Issues i see is finding a developer skilled in amp development because i doubt any themes will be coming with integration for years. I did find this article...

    No.

    Gary Illyes, Webmaster Trends Analyst at Google, stated during his SEJ Summit Chicago appearance that, “Currently, AMP is not a mobile ranking factor.”

    But of course you can pull that “Currently” apart as much as you like, and read into it a high likelihood that Google will probably use it as a direct ranking factor one day soon."
