Get a Responsive Design Without Losing Any SEO Value

Many webmasters are afraid of implementing responsive design on their site because of the fear of losing SEO value. But, the fact is, responsive design is great from both user point of view and SEO point of view.

If you are implementing two separate versions of site like site.com for desktop users and m.site.com for mobile users then it is necessary to use rel=canonical tag for your m.site.com. This will provide the full credit to the desktop version of the site and help it to rank better. The Page Rank would not get divided between the desktop and mobile versions.

But, having a responsive design allows to have a single version of the site serving both the desktop and the mobile users.

Here is a video from Matt Cutts explaining the confusion between SEO value and responsive design.
