Google.com recommends Responsive Web Design!
Here is an excerpt from Google’s help page for webmasters in the “Building Smartphone-Optimized Websites” section:
Google recommends webmasters follow the industry best practice of using responsive web design, namely serving the same HTML for all devices and using only CSS media queries to decide the rendering on each device.
Sites should use use responsive web design that can serve well on all devices on the same set of URLs. This is Google’s recommended configuration.
The single URL approach helps Google assign indexing properties for the content, load time is reduced because no redirection is needed, and it saves resources for your site and Google’s crawlers. There is no doubt that this can help in improving search engine ranking of your website.
