If your website was developed several years ago, the way people use the web has evolved since. For some sites Mobile and Tablet traffic amounts to 40% and this is only set to increase in coming years.
What Is the Solution
Responsive Design allows your website to respond to the device that is being viewed on. This presents an optimal experience for all users regardless of whether they're using a phone, tablet, computer, or other devices.
So How does it work ?
Responsive design targets the width of each users web browser to determine how much space is available and how it should display the website. Breakpoints are set up to all us to gauge ranges that define specific types of displays. For instance you'll generally see breakpoints for phones, tablets and desktops. A script then changes the styling properties for the page to ensure it is well presented for the current screen size.
What are the benefits
- Your website looks great everywhere
- No need to pinch and zoom on smaller devices to read content
- Consistent and tailored user experience
- All pages available on every device (if you want)
Don't be a statistic
46% of mobile users report having difficulty interacting with non-responsive web pages
44% complain that navigation was difficult
"Google recommends webmasters follow the industry best practice of using Responsive Web Design, namely serving the same HTML for all devices and using only CSS media queries to decide the rendering on each device."
