Responsive web design is the new standardMobile-responsive web design is what users have come to expect. Not too long ago, it was the standard to have a website with a desktop-specific design and separate mobile design, individually optimized for different screen sizes. When a visitor arrived at your site, it would figure out what device or computer they were using, and send them to the correct version of pages. But what do you do now, when your visitor might be on a tablet, mini-tablet, “phablet,” or even a smart watch? The best way to make your website future-proof is to make one beautiful design that automatically rearranges itself to fit your visitor’s screen.
Even more great things about responsive mobile web design
- Performance & Speed: A website optimized to work on every device has performance in mind. Your site will likely load more quickly than a traditional website.
- Cheaper & Easier: Programming just one website – even an elaborate one that adjusts its size – is easier, faster and therefore cheaper for you than creating several different sites. Plus your developers will thank you!
- Simple Maintenance: When you edit a page once, it changes for all devices. The text, photos and videos you’ve added will work for anyone, no matter what they’re using to visit your site.
- No Domain Scramble: Every page just has one address (no separate “m.yourdomain.com” page), which is less confusing for people sharing links to your site, and easier for search engines like Google to find your content.
