There are many reasons why a website should be responsive but the new Google update makes this even more important.

As of April 21st Google will start to prioritise responsive websites within search results whilst using a mobile device. This could hugely affect many companies ranking on Google if they have a non-responsive site.

Within Google’s statement they have spoken about the decision:

Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices.

From a user perspective this a fantastic update, tailoring search results to show the websites that will have the best experience for them will reduce user headaches, but for a business without a responsive website this is not great news. If you haven’t already got a responsive site, now is the time to invest in one, this won’t only help your search results on mobile but will future proof your website.
