What does ‘responsive’ mean?
Responsive websites work the same across all devices, from a PC/Mac to a laptop to an iPad to an iPhone.
In short, it offers the best possible user experience, from a 4-inch phone screen to a huge desktop monitor.
With more and more traffic coming from mobile devices, Web sites need to accommodate them.
That is the goal behind responsive Web site design.
“My Web site is not ‘responsive’ but it still shows up on my mobile phone. That’s good enough, right?”
For instance, do users need to zoom in to see your content? If so, Google will lower your rankings. What about your clickable links? Are they too close together to tell which links your thumb will hit? You will get marked down for that, too.
These are just two of the factors that Google will consider.
Even though your Web site may show up on a smartphone, if it is not user-friendly, it could hurt your ranking.
