In today’s Google webmaster office hours with John Mueller, I asked about whether we would see any AMP related reporting within Search Analytics of Search Console. Right now, traffic isn’t split between mobile and AMP, making it hard for webmasters to do any deeper dive analysis on their AMP traffic as well as for keywords or impressions for AMP pages.
Mueler did say it is something they are looking at but he explained why it was a bit more difficult for AMP specifically.
I don’t know, maybe it depends on your definition of soon. But we are looking into ways that we can include more information on things like “is something shown as an AMP page or not” in Search Analytics.
Because at the moment it’s kind of tricky where we fold things together with the canonical URL and you kind of see the secondary effect of Analytics being tracked for those AMP pages. But we’d like to make it a little bit more direct that you can actually see how many of my pages were shown in AMP in the search results.
So it looks like they are doing something, but sounds like it is more in the planning phase than a “getting ready to alpha/beta test” phase.
