In today’s society people are viewing websites more frequently on smart phones and tablets. Your website needs to be easily read and functional on these smaller screens. Put simply, if your website isn’t easy to use on a mobile device, they will move onto one of your competitors who is. Google is now seeing this as a bonus, and is downgrading websites that don’t respond to the device it’s being viewed on.
Responsive web design is not just a buzz word. It’s believed that mobile internet usage has overtaken desktop internet usage. This means that people are viewing your website on a mobile device than ever before.
Older non-responsive websites simply shrink to fit the size of the screen that you are viewing on. How often have you tried to use a website on your phone that you have had to zoom right in to get the information you need? Sometimes all you want to do is get their phone number to call them and you can’t even do that! It’s frustrating for users and will, in turn lead to lost sales for you.
