So, just that allows Responsive Web Design (RWD) to your website adjust the screen size to the device from which the user accesses and that information on the screen are clearly readable.
The advantages of RWD
Web site will be accessible and legible on the screens of all devices with which customers visit your website. No more need to “zoom in” content to read the e-mail address or phone number.
User experience (User Experience)
Normally, that visitors will be happier when the website has “normal” view. Usability of your web will be much better and people will surely keep coming back to it (normally, it also depends on the content of the web).
No more need to take care that you must update the content on the desktop and mobile versions of websites. You now have one system (say the WordPress platform), which update all in one place, and the result is visible updates to all devices. So, take care of one system rather than two or more – easy maintenance.
Instead of optimizing content, or linking to more places, RWD provides a single system that is easy to update and it’s optimized for all devices. In addition, the URL structure remains the same for all devices whether for desktops, smart phones or tablet computers, which enables Google to simply crawl your website. Google favors RWD in front of the other approaches to developing a website optimized for smartphones.

Using RWD access, except for desktop users, you focus on all mobile users to browse the web prefer their devices, and thus increase the conversion of your site which ultimately reflecting the increase in sales.
