I really can not give you an exact data but roughly a %20 percent increase is what we have seen. It really depends. We now have about 200K AMP compatible pages and they recieve massive amounts of hits from Google. Day by day, smart phone usage is increasing and AMP is the best solution for delivering content to smartphones. It is instant as it is a CDN service provided by Google :)

the addon serve amp pages from google servers? i thought that only worked with top news publishers who work with google for this.
Kinda. It is not the add-on but the Google itself that hosts the content in it's CDN after content is AMP enabled. And no, anyone can benefit. That's why you should push for this feature.
 
I believe it will be designed for XenForo 2.0? As there is already an AMP add-on for XF1 and it works good.
Of course, is based on XF2 board.
You can see a proof here: https://www.inforge.net/forum/threa...na-avendo-il-numero-di-telefono.501281/?amp=1
Here is the AMP Validator: https://search.google.com/test/amp?...x&utm_campaign=suit&id=DOXK9qa438zAmfZZ2drZ5Q
For now we can't publish it (we are testing it on a very large board) because there's a lot of stuff to code for making it compatible with a lot of plugins and themes for XF2 ;)
 
A little update about AMP experience from 1.x to 2.x

Google now is fetching pages, I've send some corrections to Search Console so now we need to wait Google approval.
Based on this experience, there's some considerations to admit (maybe useful for who is developing or expect an AMP plugin):
  • If you expect the same forum in the AMP version, you will be disappointed. Is only a static version of the website, not (yet) interactive
  • Most of the problems are caused by users, that don't know how to compile BBcode (tag <a url="blasphemy ThiS Is NOt aN UrL"> in primis)
  • Some problems was caused by plugins and their features (i.e. Tapatalk smilies)
  • Most of "sh*tty-coded" plugins uses inline styling, which is not supported by AMP standard
For now we have "only" 600+/- pages crawled correctly by Google, we expect to exceed at least 10k pages. After that, I hope we can see some improvements in Analytics.
