Google has announced that starting April 21, 2015 mobile responsiveness will be factored into search engine results.  

This is considered to be the largest Google update in years and is expected to affect every website which is not mobile responsive. The impact is expected to be so large that it is being called "Mobilegeddon" in the web industry.

What is mobile responsiveness?

A mobile responsive website makes viewing on any phone, tablet, or other device easy by automatically moving content, images, and other site elements to fit into the screen.

Why do I need to make my website mobile responsive?

Mobile responsiveness will affect your website's search engine rankings. Mobile responsive sites will be valued higher than sites which aren’t responsive. Going forward, Google will also give a completely different set of search results for people on mobile devices. If your website is not mobile responsive, then it may not be included in the mobile results. Because half of the internet's traffic is mobile, if your site is not on the mobile index you could potentially lose half of the traffic you receive from Google.
