So what is this Bootstrap we’re all praising?
To make a long story short, bootstrap is the tool to use if you want a fully responsive website design or an RWD.
Why wanting a responsive website?
Because SEO and potatoes...actually it's more about SEO and less about potatoes, but you'll get the grip. Google fancies all responsive designs. While Google has never released an official statement or a comprehensive study to show how and on what percentage does the responsiveness impacts the ranking boost, there are several statements released by Google contributors that suggest a clear impact.
If we think that the majority of searches nowadays are made using a portable device (tablet or phone), it is somehow logical that a responsive fast website will have a higher ranking than a similar non-responsive website.
A good way to make a website work in both worlds [mobile & desktop] would be to have a site that uses responsive web-design techniques to adjust to the size of the user’s device/settings. (John Mueller - Webmaster Trends Analyst)
Important names in the field of SEO and digital marketing have shown that a responsive website can increase both organic and paid traffic with up to 40%. While this type of case study may seem like one in a million, the truth is that making your website responsive, is a synonym for bringing your business to the XXIst century.
