Responsive Web Design
When asking Google” What is a responsive web design”? It says: Responsive web design (RWD) is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience, easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling – across a wide range of devices from desktop monitors to mobile devices.
And… I couldn’t have said it better myself. In layman terms it means this: If you search your website and it looks great on a monitor and practically disappears on a hand held device then you’ve just experienced a missed opportunity with potential business. It also means simply this, you want your website to look great on all screen sizes and mobile devices. And you want your website to look the same on each device its searched on.
The most obvious question most people ask is can I get a mobile website? And the answer is, yes we can craft a mobile website, however that’s already old technology and doesn’t save money. The right question is “Can I make my existing website responsive” and the answer is yes. By converting your existing website to a responsive web design you are now reaching all devices. Your unique design and products and services has now expanded into markets you otherwise could have been missed in.
Now more than ever converting your existing website to perform at its highest potential is going to not only expand your market but protect the investment you made in your website. And its more affordable than you think.
More importantly Google has announced that all new websites “previously unknown to Google Search” will be indexed using mobile-first indexing starting on July 1. Older web sites that are still not being indexed using mobile-first indexing will not be switched yet to mobile-first indexing on July 1st but be moved when those web sites are ready to be moved to mobile-first indexing.
At VISIONEFX we are converting existing websites for so many of our clients as we move into 2019. Its a smart investment in the future of search engine change and expanding competition in online markets. You want to look professional, respond to any screen size challenge and be out front of the online competition. And yes size does matter online, from the largest smart TV’s to the smallest phone.
