Is Your Website Mobile Friendly?

It’s no secret that usage of mobile devices has taken over the web surfing by storm. According to recent research, 90% of American adults have a cell phone and 42% of American adults own a tablet. (Source: Pew Research).

What it means that if you already have a website, chances are that a substantial number of people visiting your site are coming from the mobile and tablet devices. On top of that many of these devices built with a different screen sizes and resolution.

In order for your website to stay up to date and provide optimal user experience, you need to insure that your website can adopt to multiple screen shape and sizes including smaller ones like mobile or tablets.

Luckily there’s a solution. One of the latest web technologies is to utilize a responsive design. Responsive Web Design is basically a web design approach which adjusts your website to any screen size of whatever device it’s being displayed on in order to provide an optimal viewing experience for the user.  It is achieved by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images and CSS3 media.

Responsive Web Design has quickly became an industry standard due to the wide diversity of screen sizes and resolutions present in today’s technology marketplace. Many organizations including businesses and non-profits are rapidly converting their websites to be responsive because non responsive sites are no longer sufficient in delivering optimal user experiences.

In addition, switching to responsive design provides a positive impact on search ranking because Google takes into account the usability of you site by checking a bounce rate. The higher the bounce rate – the higher the chance that Google will be less likely to rank that website for mobile. (Source: Search Engine Land)
