Yesterday, Google began rolling out an update to its search algorithm that will boost the rankings of mobile-friendly sites in mobile searches. Sites that are built with Responsive Web Design will generally have no issues as they are specially coded to adapt page content automatically and fluidly to the size of the viewing screen (and even to the orientation of the screen in the case of mobile devices like tablets and smartphones). It's important to understand that this update affects searches performed on mobile devices and not those done on desktop or laptop devices.
The original, nearly four year old NW10 Design site was getting a little long in the tooth both aesthetically and functionally. After six months of fiddling around with various new designs and reworking our content, we finally got around to applying a rather substantial overhaul to our site. Cosmetically, the page design is changed from the previous dark theme to a more contemporary light, airy, sectioned layout that employs flat design, clean modern fonts, and loads of white space punctuated with our brand orange. Functionally, and most importantly, is the introduction of Responsive Web Design (RWD).
