Responsive Web Design
A responsive website is a Mobile Friendly web site. It displays and navigates well on different screen sizes. So on your mobile, there is a single column of content, images are resized, there is a click menu for navigation and the phone number can be called directly, whilst on your desktop there is a wide layout, multiple columns for text, large images and mouse roll-over navigation. The tablet has an in between experience. The website recognises the viewing device and adjusts the website content accordingly.
Why is this important?
- Firstly, with mobile usage of the internet rapidly increasing each year, you are doing your customers a favour. It is much easier to navigate a mobile-friendly website on a mobile device, so customers are likely to stay on the site longer and complete their enquiry or their purchase.
- Secondly, Google likes to give its searchers the best experience possible. When you Google a topic on your mobile, a mobile-friendly website will be shown in the results ahead of a website that is not mobile-friendly. Therefore, if your website is mobile friendly and your competitors isn’t, yours will show up in the search engine and theirs won’t.
Is there a choice? NO! All our new website builds are for mobile-responsive websites. It is that important. There are 21 million smart phones in Australia in 2016 – that’s a saturation of 96%. There is no going back – make your website mobile-friendly!
