In 2014, mobile search volumes surpassed desktop search—meaning more people search for your products or services from a smartphone than a tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.
In April 2015, Google officially made mobile-friendliness a ranking factor—meaning if your website isn’t mobile-friendly, it will rank lower than websites that are when customers search on a mobile device.
Today, Google is working on building a mobile-only index, meaning if your business’s website is not mobile-friendly you may not appear in mobile search results at all. Once released, Google’s mobile index will be the primary search index the search engine uses to respond to queries.

Benefits of Responsive Website Design
Google has officially stated that they prefer responsive websites.
You only have to manage one website when it’s responsive, as opposed to having to manage both a desktop version and a mobile version.
You won’t have to worry about duplicate content, faulty redirects, or other common usability errors that separate mobile websites create.
Responsive websites offer the best usability for your visitors, as they’re compatible to all users on all devices.
“What Mobile-Friendly” Mean?
“Mobile-friendly” simply means that your website’s content and assets are accessible, legible, and usable to visitors on a smartphone.
Have you ever found yourself on a website that doesn’t display well on your tiny phone screen? A website where you have to zoom and pinch to read small text and clumsily click tiny buttons with what feel like giant sausage-like fingers?
In the past, most companies elected to build a custom mobile website. However, building a custom responsive website is now industry standard.
