If you haven’t heard about responsive websites then where have you been hiding?

Many online businesses now use a responsive website design and there are many reasons as to why you should change your site to a responsive design as soon as possible.

So if you don’t know what responsive website design is then it is simply this: a website design that resizes based on what your customer is viewing your site on whether it be a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Have you ever opened a website on your smartphone and it was just a tiny version of the website then this is a case of a website not utilising a responsive design.

Last year was when responsive designs started coming into to play but don’t worry you are not too late to the party. Many websites still do not have a responsive design and this will be affecting their customer base as well as their google ranking. But now a lot of companies are taking advantage of responsive designs and if you are still using a website from the past then you are in danger of being left behind.

Google want mobile ready websites

If your website is not mobile ready you then you will already be being penalised by google. They have new rules in force that check if your website is mobile friendly and if you are not then you will find yourself slipping down the rankings.

Mobile / Tablets are the future

If you’re not providing a mobile-friendly experience for your customers, then there is a high chance they will leave your website and go to one of your competitors that has a much easier website to use. People are increasingly using mobiles such as iPhones or iPads to browse websites over desktops or laptops.
