Great looking websites… everywhere
You’ll probably have noticed how many websites now display things differently on mobile devices compared to a desktop computer layout.
There’s no need to zoom in to read the text and see images as the page content containers change position and shape, that’s responsive web design… and you need it for your website.
Responsive Design is not just better for visitor experiences, but will also help your site appear higher on Google!
When choosing where page links appear in search results, Google now gives more importance to websites that are optimised for mobile, especially when the search is taking place on a mobile device.
So if your site doesn’t scale well, or at all, for smaller screen sizes, you’re likely to be loosing out on potential site visitors.

What is a responsive website?
A responsive website, or responsive layout, is a website that will change width and appearance depending on the device or screen size it is being viewed with. A simple way to describe this might be to say that the website has a “mobile version”. This version is shown to the visitor automatically, another term for this is “optimised for mobile”. Rather than forcing the site visitor to zoom in on their smart phone, they will only have to scroll down as the contents have been resized and reordered to make viewing easier.
You have likely encountered many responsive websites while looking around online. You may not have noticed as it’s the best ones that have you reading the content the moment you arrive on the site.
Why have a responsive layout website?
As more websites are being accessed using mobile phones and tablets it is more important to provide the information visitors are looking for in as few steps as possible. By removing the need to squint their eyes and zoom in, by implementing a responsive layout, your site could already be one step ahead of your competition.
In addition to a great visitor experience, you will also be higher in Google searches. Mobile optimised websites are favoured by Google and other search engines when the search is taking place on a mobile device.
With mobile use and searching on-the-go increasing rapidly, this means you’ll have more chance of capturing the attention of your target customers, wherever they are!
