Mobile Websites – Responsive Website Design
Mobile Websites – websites that play nicely with cellphones and tablets as well as desktop computers of all types are a requirement in today’s Worlds Wide Web. But the question is how best to implement for both Search Engine Optimization and ease of management? A sophisticated content management system that enables your content to seamlessly flow to your responsive, mobile website such as WordPress is a good answer. But the question remains – “Why Mobile Websites?”
Consider according to the Pew Research Center:
- “As of April 2012, 55% of adult cell owners use the internet on their mobile phones; nearly double what we found three years ago.”
- “31% of current cell internet users say that they mostly go online using their cell phone, and not using some other device such as a desktop or laptop computer. That works out to 17% of all adult cell owners who are “cell-mostly internet users”—that is, who use their phone for most of their online browsing.”
- “As of May 2013 34% of American adults own a tablet computer.”
More over, as of April 21, 2015, Google will depreciate the page ranking of websites that are not responsive. To understate this – it’s kind of a biggie as far as website visibility. But it makes sense when you consider the chart courtesy of comScore. For most tasks and most users, tablets and cell phones are the device of choice when traversing the World Wide Web.
What is a Responsive Website?
The best non-technical explanation is that a Responsive Website plays nicely and consistently across all devices – Desktop PC’s, Cell phones & Tablets. One website, one set of content and one cohesive message.
Bottom line is – if your website is not responsive, contact us.
