Above all facts lead us to one thing and that is the importance and the inevitable need to spruce up your online assets according to these mobile devices. As a businessman, you need to look perfect on every device and for that you have two choices. One is to have a website for every device, but this option poses 2 main challenges, cost and time. It is not only time consuming to put efforts on multiple websites but also expensive, and worst, it is not at all Google-friendly. So the second option, which is economical, time effective and Google/SEO-friendly is Responsive website―single site for every device.
Responsive Websites would also mean:

No redirection, or extra panning and scrolling to get to the device-optimized view, makes your website load faster and provide an excellent user experience, on any to every device.

As you see new mobile devices being introduced almost every other day, you are never too sure that your website would look perfect on this new device or not, unless it is Responsive. With Responsive you can be assured of a perfect viewing on every/any device.
3. Mobile Usage is Inflating
According to CNN, “In January 2014, Americans used smartphone and tablet apps more than PCs to access the Internet”. The mobile explosion has undoubtedly gone far, especially in developing countries where affordable gadgets are available easily. It’s time you move to Responsive Website.
4. Higher Conversion Rates
An optimized, engaging website with great user experience, being viewed on any device is definite to bring more business than a poorly built, unappealing website.
5. And most importantly, Google recommends it
Using a single URL makes it easier for both you and Google crawlers to share, interact and index your website. And that’s what makes Responsive Website SEO friendly.
