If you need another reason to make the move to a responsive (mobile) web design framework, well here it is.  Google has announced that as of April 21st, 2015 their updated algorithm will now include mobile-friendly usability factors.  This means that if your website is not mobile friendly your Google ranking in mobile search will be negatively affected. With nearly half of all searching occurring on mobile devices this equates to a large number of potential clients that may be going to your competitors mobile optimized site.
