The world has changed with smartphones and the need for responsive web design has become a necessity. Did you know that almost 60% of online searches originate on a cell phone? It critical that your website is mobile friendly on all devices (Phone, Tablet, Laptop, Desktop).
Responsive Websites Give a Good User Experience (Good UX)
You only get one first impression with your website. A new study shows that 88% of consumers won’t return to your site based on a bad experience. For example, if your site is not responsive, your customers have to pinch to zoom in and out to navigate your site. The text is normally way too small to read.
A responsive website scales with every device and always looks great. It re-arranges the content in a pleasing way on each device making the site easy to use. The fonts scale accordingly and always remain readable. You can only scroll up and down and never right and left.
Google Likes Responsive Websites
The reason Google likes responsive website design is that it gives a good user experience. Google has recently started penalizing sites that are not responsive by showing them lower on search engine results. This makes it almost impossible to ever get on the 1st page of Google.
Mobile websites (created through apps) were once popular but they normally showed a limited version of the website without all the images, text and content. A mobile website now is not as robust as a responsive website and thus penalized.
Google indexes your site based on the mobile view. So, if your mobile view is not showing all of the valuable content, keywords, information, etc. you might not be ranking where you should.
