Make your website responsive
by The Design Bank on 29 March 2017
Times have progressed massively in the last few years with more and more people having access to the internet by using devices such as smartphones and tablets. Infact, a report published by Ofcom in 2015 stated that a third (33%) of internet users see their smartphone as the most important device for going online, compared to 30% who are still sticking with their laptop. Smartphones have become the hub of our daily lives, they're with us everywhere we go. They're a quick way to browse and shop on the move from your very own fingertips. Great aren't they?
So what happens if a visitor tries to access your website from their smartphone and you haven't got a responsive site? Well it's going to be hard to read the content and the user will have to do a lot of work to navigate the site. A responsive website changes it's layout to adapt to the screen size being used to view it. No matter what device your visitor is using, your website will appear in a user-friendly manner giving them the best experience on the page. Yes most smartphones and tablets have a pinch to zoom feature but this feature used on a non responsive website may still prove difficult as the navigation will be a mess and the legibility of text will also be poor. The biggest advantage of a responsive website for a business though is improved SEO (Search engine optimisation) results. Google announced that websites that were mobile friendly would rank better on mobile search results pages than websites that were not mobile-friendly. So a better looking website and a better performing website? Sounds perfect.
