Responsive websites are single websites that adapt their look and functionality to the user device and perform well on all types of common devices, from smartphones to tablets, laptops and desktops. Responsiveness ensures that each website user has access to the same information and tools on every device.
In today’s fast-paced world about 60% of internet traffic comes from mobile devices. Mobile internet usage surpassed desktop in 2016. In year 2017, the number of mobile phone users is forecasted to reach 4.7 billion. As mobile device usage is continuously increasing at a rapid rate worldwide, mobile presence is becoming more and more essential for website owners.
At Levia Design, all our websites are mobile-friendly and fully responsive, with fluid layout using flexible grids and media queries that dynamically resize content and page elements depending on the device’s screen.
Responsive websites have many benefits. First of all, they are cost-saving, by eliminating the need for paying for a separate mobile website in addition to a desktop website.
Secondly, having a mobile-friendly website in practice means that more mobile users get drawn to, stay on and revisit the website.
In addition, having a responsive website increases ranking in mobile search results. Having a website that is specifically optimized for mobile phones will not only lead to a better user experience, but will help ensure your website is seen by mobile users when they are searching on a mobile device. Having a responsive and mobile-optimized website is a must these days, as search engines tend to favour mobile-friendly websites. Google and other search engines recommend responsiveness as a significant search engine optimization step. Non-mobile friendly results are no longer displayed on page one in mobile search results.
