Responsive Web Sites Are Good For Business
Did you know Google wants your web site to be mobile friendly and will reward those who have responsive web sites with increase rankings in the search results.
With over 171 million people owning and using smartphones, having a responsive web site ensures you keep users on your web site instead of leaving to go to your competitor’s web site.
What Responsive Design Is
A website that is mobile responsive means the website displays properly on all devices such as mobile phones, tablets, laptops and desktops.
When your web site is responsive you don’t need a separate version of your website just to make sure it loads and looks right on all devices. Basically, a responsive web site makes sure you only need one web site and you don’t need to build different versions of your site to look right on different devices.
Google is also a big fan of responsive web sites and gives them preferred treatment in the search engines.
How Responsive Design Helps
Using responsive web design has multiple advantages, including:
- It keeps your desktop and mobile content on a single URL
- Makes it easier for users to interact, share, and link to your content
- Allows Google’s algorithms to properly assign indexing properties to your content and pages
- Google can discover your content more efficiently
- Search engines won’t need to crawl a page with the different bot user agents to retrieve and index all your content
In today’s world having a website is 100% necessary for 99% of all business owners. Having a responsive web site is just as important.
On June 6th 2012, and again on February 11th, 2014, Google published that the #1 format they want to see a mobile website built as is the “mobile responsive” method. And Google will give preferential treatment to web sites that are responsive. That means your competitors may outrank you in the search engine results if your site is not responsive.
As well as being penalized by Google for not having a responsive site, you risk losing customers. When customers try to access a non-responsive web site on their phones, they tend to get frustrated and leave the site. That means you risk sending potential customers to your competitors who are mobile (responsive) friendly.
The Future of Responsive Web Sites
More people than ever are buying and using mobile phones. Current consumer ownership of smartphones is over 171.5 million people (71%) and over 71 million people own tablets. With the increase in smartphone ownership, the mobile web traffic has been skyrocketing in the past few years and is impossible to ignore.
Smartphones and tablets now drive nearly 3 out of every 5 minutes spent online with digital media. Smartphone and tablets pushed overall time spent online by 93% in just 3 years. Within the span of 3 years, mobile usage has increased from 497 billion minutes spent online to 958 billion minutes…with no end in sight.
I hope you can agree that mobile is here to stay and being able to accommodate mobile users on your web site is critical to your business’s success.
