Every business needs a beautiful, well designed Website.
However, if that Website can’t be viewed properly on a mobile device or tablet you run the risk of losing potential clients.
This is where responsive Website comes into play.
Responsive Websites are perfect on every device
Back in the day, (ie pre-smartphones & tablets) having a Website that looked good on a cell phone was a non-issue. Fast forward to 2016, more Google searches occur on mobile than on desktop. What this means for you is that if your site doesn’t look good on a smartphone or tablet, you will lose users. That means less sales for your business.
Google Prefers a Responsive Website
Google is advancing its algorithm very quickly, and its goal is to be indistinguishable from a human being. In other words, if a human can’t easily understand a particular Web page or Web site in general, the algorithm can’t either, resulting in penalties and lower rankings.
No need for a separate mobile site
If you have a responsive Website, you eliminate the need for a separate mobile site. One site is easier to manage on a day to day basis. Also, without a separate mobile site, you don’t need separate SEO and Adwords campaigns.
Responsive sites have lower bounce rates
A bounce rate is the number of people who visit on your Website, but don’t click anywhere. When a site looks bad on your smartphone, those users tend to bounce. Google translates that into your site being irrelevant. In turn, that hurts your SEO.
Responsive sites are timeless
A responsive site is designed based on the size of the screen. It adapts based on screen size, not type of device. So, when new devices come out with different size screens, you won’t have to redesign your Website. This will save you time and money in the future.
