If you have not implemented AMP yet, you can get it up and running on Wordpress in less than 5 minutes. First find the free AMP plugin by Wordpress maker Auttomatic and install it. You are actually done. All your posts are now AMPlified. You can see the AMP version appending /amp/ at the end of the url of the a post (example). Out of the box the AMP plugin is generating AMP pages that are not displaying the logo, featured image, and also don't show any of your advertising.
Auttomatic provides some code snippets to ad the featured image and display the site logo on an AMP page on GitHub. The code needs to be placed in the functions.php file in the theme folder of your active Wordpress theme.
This is it. You got now AMP implemented with your logo, featured images and ads.
You can find the complete code to add to functions.php here. Please remember to edit the url of the logo, the data-ad-client and the data-ad-slot in the ad unit.
