Responsive Website Design And Why It Matters

If you went back 25 or 30 years ago no one was talking about mobile devices and responsive website design. It simply wasn’t something to discuss because it wasn’t developed yet. However, this year of 2017 everyone has a mobile device and everyone uses them on a day-to-day basis. There are almost more mobile devices than there are people in this world! So what does having a responsive website have anything to do with mobile devices?

Most Consumers Use Mobile Devices To Look Up Things Online

The truth is more people are using mobile devices to search the Internet than they are desktop or laptop computers. So when someone visits a website using a smart phone or any sort of tablets, your website needs to be mobile responsive in order to fit these different screens. The iPhone screen is a different size and shape than the android screen and if your website is not adapting to all of these different screen sizes then your website is not mobile responsive.

Fully Responsive Websites Are Imperative

It actually was not too long ago that Google came out with an update saying that any website that is not fully mobile responsive will not rank as high in the search engines. If you have been spending thousands of dollars on an Internet marketing campaign but your website is not fully responsive then you are seriously losing out on a lot of customers.

It seems like a lot of website design companies are talking about the mobile responsive website topic. But let us give our input on the subject. More than 25% of all websites online are built with WordPress which is fantastic. WordPress is the number one content management system in the world. It is incredibly easy to make websites fully responsive so that they will match and fit any different screen size.

WordPress Is Our Favorite Content Management System

So if your company has a website that is already with WordPress, but the website is not fully responsive all we need to do are a few tweaks to the website theme also known as a template in order to make your website viewable on any different screen size. The good news about having a mobile responsive website and website design is that it does not need to cost you a lot of money. If your website is already developed with this CMS then chances are you do not need to do anything to your current site. However, if your website is not fully mobile responsive you can easily hire a website design company that can transfer your site to a really good CMS.

Mobile responsive website design is here and here to stay permanently. We recommend using some of the online mobile responsive checkers on the web to verify that your website is being displayed properly on all of the different screen sizes that are now available.
