What is Responsive Website Design?
Responsive website design means the website will scale appropriately depending on what device you are using to access the website. For example, a website change size if viewed on a desktop vs a mobile phone. Sites that are not responsive will show very small on mobile phones. You will try to zoom in to read the details. You can easily test your site to see if it is responsive by visiting http://ami.responsivedesign.is/ or take Google’s Mobile-Friendly Test.
Why is Responsive Website Design Important?
There are many reasons a responsive site is important:
- Customer user experience
- Increase in mobile search
- Shopping on mobile devices is increasing
- Google’s recommendations
- Google prioritisng Mobile First in 2017
- Improve SEO rankings
In 2017 Google will be focusing on Mobile First. You will find that the new algorithms are focused heavily on mobile experience. For example earlier this year we saw the introduction of Google’s mobile popup penalty on mobile devices. Google will also rank a website that is mobile responsive higher than one that is not.
