Mobile Responsive Design
Mobile responsiveness ensures your website or blog looks great and works on every type of browser and device (e.g. laptop, tablets, and smart phones).
Your site is optimised to display optimally on any device, so you don’t have to worry about a visitor leaving your site because it doesn’t work well on their device.
Having a mobile responsive website means that you won’t need to maintain a separate mobile site or app, allowing you to focus your attention on one main site over several.
Google recently announced that responsive website will be given preference in organic searches.
They are now judging how “mobile-friendly” a site is and is using that metric to weight search results served to mobile devices.
This is the third update in Google’s slow push for Web developers to start building mobile-friendly sites. First, Google announced that it would start calling out sites that used Flash and at the same time rewarding mobile-friendly sites. Initially, that was just a little label next to search results on mobile devices that told viewers the site was “Mobile-friendly.”
Technically, responsive websites use CSS @media queries and some other techniques behind the scenes that are based on Web standards, Google doesn’t really care how sites do it, however, just that they do it.
Google has a mobile-friendly test page where you can see how your favorite sites do.
