The Top 3 Reasons Why Your Site Should Be Responsive
The goal is for web pages to detect the visitor's screen size and orientation and change the layout accordingly making the pages easy to read and navigate with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling.
1. Because Google Says So!
"If you haven't made your website mobile-friendly, you should." When it comes to wanting your website to impress a search engine, Google is where you want to focus most of your attention. On April 21, 2015 they released a significant update to their algorithm that analyzed the "mobile-friendliness" of sites and offered a boost in rankings for those that were. Google provides very clear recommendations on what you can do for your site.
2. Local Search Is Seriously on the Rise!
Making your website responsive is especially important if you do business with the local market as more searches are conducted on mobile devices than any other device.
3. Your Responsive Site Will Adapt to Future Devices
The foundation of responsive design is that the layout of your pages will be determined by screen size rather than a particular device. As newer devices enter the market, your site will adapt automatically.
