Responsive Mobile Friendly Design & Google Ranking

Responsive Web Design is becoming more and more important for website owners as the volume of traffic from hand-held devices increases. We are now at the point where almost 60% of website visitors are viewing your website on a tablet, phone or some other handheld small screen device. To add to the importance, Google has recently announced that it wiil include a websites "Mobile Friendliness" in its criteria for searches from April 21st 2015. This can only mean that non responsive or non mobile friendly website will be penalised and therefore not appear as high up the rankings as they once did on mobile devices which would equate to you potentially losing 60% of your target audience or potential sales.
