Why Responsive Web Design?
For decades the one and only way to access the internet was on a desktop computer (e.g. PC or Mac) or laptop and most often on a 10-12 inch screen. But as technology has evolved things have changed dramatically. Not only have desktop computer screens grown significantly larger and laptops more varied in size, but the advent of mobile smartphones (iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, Amazon Fire Phone), tablets (iPad, Galaxy, Kindle Fire) and eReaders (Kindle, iOS, Android) they way that users - and all of us! - access the web has changed dramatically.
This means that a website designed to operate on a 12 inch screen is no longer acceptable. Your website's cross-device compatibility is an absolute necessity or you could be frustrating users and losing out on half of the internet's traffic.
This is only the beginning of why your website, and your business, simply can't afford to wait any longer . . .

Google's Mobile Friendly Algorithm
While Google has been applying a "mobile first" approach to its operations for several years, and mobile friendly web design has been a mild ranking factor, in 2015 Google announced the roll out of its new Mobile Friendly Algorithm update (April 21, 2015). While only applying to mobile searches, the update is expected to be the largest and have the largest impact on search results in Google's history. This means even larger than the famous Panda and Penguin updates. As a result of this websites that are not mobile friendly will no longer enjoy the ranking positions they may have now. The fact is, non-responsive or mobile optimized websites frustrate users on mobile devices with text that is too small to read, links that are too close together and difficult to follow and more. You can test your website's mobile friendliness on Google right now.
If you don't pass the test, let us help you make sure you do.
Quick Fact: A staggering 61% or more of local searches performed on mobile phones result in a purchase.
What makes a Website Mobile Friendly?
The essence of responsive design is simple: the website responds to the size of the screen that is viewing it, whether it be large or small.
When accessed by a mobile phone - the smallest of all screens - the website is still
- Easy to read - font size is large enough and fit within the screen
- Easy to navigate - links are large enough and far enough apart to click on with a finger tip without making a mistake
- Easy to fill out forms - form fields adjust to screen size so a user can type into them without error
- The full content fits within the size of the screen.
