Getting your website designed by a professional may seem like an easy task but in reality, you need to think about how responsive your site is going to be as well as how user-friendly it is as well. Responsive web design refers to how easy it is for someone to view your site, and it also refers to how often the site resizes across computer monitors, tablets, phones and more. With the mobile market booming and more and more people using tablets and phones to view websites, there has never been a better time for you to upgrade your site to a responsive design and you’d be surprised at what a difference it can make to you and your customers.
Another thing that you need to think about when it comes to responsive web design is the new initiative from Google. They have a new tester page, which can be found here, and it shows you how responsive your site is. It also shows you how your site looks when it is on a mobile phone, so as you can see, it really has never been easier for you to get your site looking great across all platforms.
If that wasn’t enough for you to see the need to make your site responsive, you also need to take note that the responsiveness of your site also contributes to your SEO standing. If your site isn’t optimised for mobile devices then you may not see the same benefits as a website which does have a great responsive experience so this is something that you need to think about when talking with your web designer.
Of course, with the algorithm always changing, it can be difficult to keep up with the latest requirements but by making your site responsive, you can be sure to reap the benefits in no time at all.
