Mobile Friendly Website Design

It has never been more important for your website to be responsive, to look good and function well on any device. If your website isn’t mobile friendly you could be losing ranking.

So what is responsive web design?

In a nutshell, a responsive website adapts and resizes content and layout based on the device it’s being displayed on. This means you have only one website but it works on all types of devices. The page will recognise you’re viewing from a smartphone or tablet and re-size automatically.

The number of people browsing websites from their smartphones and mobile devices is on the increase and whatever type of device people are using they want a good experience. Google has decided that if you’re not committed to providing them with a good experience then you’re likely to lose ranking.

You see Google has begun altering the search results it presents when they’re made from a mobile and if your site hasn’t been designed specifically for mobile phones then there’s a chance those results won’t include your site. Priority is being given to responsive, mobile friendly websites.

If your website isn’t responsive, you’ll still be able to see your site on a mobile phone but it’s likely to be a mini version of your regular site and you’ll need to scroll and drag all over the screen to read the content and navigate the site. That’s not going to be a great experience or create a good first impression – and that’s if you even get to create that first impression.

All new sites developed by Pedleyonline are responsively designed which means they provide a good experience for your customers regardless of the type of device being used. Your customers will know this and they’ll enjoy navigating your site and Google will know this and will continue to include your website in the results it returns for mobile searches.

Mobile friendly responsive websites are what your customers and Google want to see from now on and as a website and business owner you really should give them what they want.
