Read the full announcement here. That means if your website is not upgraded to a responsive or mobile-friendly format by April 21st, you will begin to drop in the search results.
This year the number of Google searches from mobile devices will exceed the number of desktop searches for the first time in history, and Google is preparing for that landmark event. You should too!

What is responsive web design?
Responsive web design means that the website changes and adapts to many screen sizes. It makes sure the website’s template width fits smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers. The website will read the type of device loading the page, and adjust the design to look great on that screen size.
Prior to about 5 years ago, this type of web design was really difficult to achieve. It required separate sites for mobile and desktop, but now one responsive design handles the changes automatically.
Just select the desired device in the top yellow bar, and you will see the website automatically resize itself to fit each screen size.
