    That makes sense, but the OP’s question was about the impact on SEO.

    I read that blog post back when it was first published, and used it at that time to convince the executive board that WP Touch was a good choice. Now, however, I am asking for an additional argument based on Google’s more recent recommendation to serve only one version of a page across all devices using responsive breakpoints/CSS.

    Hi,

    If you look at the second recommendation:

    “2. If responsive design is not the best option to serve your users, Google supports having your content being served using different HTML. The different HTML can be on the same URL or on different URLs, and Googlebot can handle both setups appropriately if you follow our recommendations.”

    it says that it is also ok where websites serve content to mobile users using different HTML. Which is what WPtouch does. When it detects a supported mobile device, the WPtouch is loaded (different HTML than the desktop theme) on the same URL.

    It also say that their bot can handle it.
