If you click the image below and then once the site has opened, either view it on a mobile device as well or for a better demonstration of how a responsive site works, grab the edge of your browser window with your mouse and then shrink it and you will see the site adapt as you make the window smaller.


"Mobile friendliness" will affect how prominently websites appear in Google search results pages from 21 April 2015.

Criteria includes text size, the amount of space between links and whether the content fits across a mobile screen.

A Google representative said mobile friendliness was "one of many" factors used by the search engine to rank results, but in a blog post the company said it would have "a significant impact" on search result."

"As people increasingly search on their mobile devices, we want to make sure they can find content that's not only relevant and timely, but also easy to read and interact with on smaller mobile screens," the representative said.
