A responsive website can be what separates you from your competition. If your prospective customers are looking for you on their mobile phone, you’ll want to have a responsive design.
Mobile phones have surpassed all the other devices when it comes to online searches for a few years now. Not only that, Google has long added responsiveness as one of their ranking factors in their search results – so being responsive is important for SEO as well. These two factors make it essential to have a responsive website.
You want to appear at the best possible position on mobile results. Having a good responsive design is the only way to go about this. Plus, Google has been working on a mobile ranking system that will keep non-responsive websites from appearing on mobile search results, which might keep you out of the biggest search source if your website is not up to date. This still hasn’t come to fruition, but when you get your website redesigned, you need to take the future into account.
