Responsive Web Design
Responsive web design takes the approach that the design and development of a website should respond to a user’s behavior and adapt based on screen size, platform and orientation. Simply put, responsive web design will change the size and orientation of a web page based on the screen size of the device you are using to view it.
Have you ever used your smart phone and had to enlarge and swipe a web page to view it properly? That is NON responsive web design. Responsible responsive web design viewed on your smart phone will be fast to load, easy to read, easy to tap on links, etc.
Studies show that a large percentage of mobile users will abandon a website if it is not built with a responsive web design, and they will go back to their search results to find a similar site that can be viewed more easily. If you call up your website on your smart phone, can you see everything easily? If not, you may want to consider updating your website with a responsive web design.
If you still have doubts, did you know that Google will now penalize websites that are not mobile friendly by putting them farther down in the search results? Yikes!
