With major changes on Google’s search engine being released in April to give preference to “Responsive” Websites, it is more important, now more than ever, that your website be compatible with mobile devices. Updating your website with a “Responsive” Design is a crucial investment for your company’s future as it can directly impact your online ranking and marketing efforts.
What is “Responsive” Design?
If you have ever visited a “regular” website using a mobile device, you may have noticed that reading its contents and clicking relevant links are difficult when you are required to “zoom in”. If you were required to zoom in on the website, it was NOT responsive. A Responsive Website will feature user interfaces that are dynamically sized down to be more compatible with small displays on mobile devices. In other words, the website flips to “mobile-mode” when viewed through smart phones and tablets.
Is Your website “Responsive”?
Here is how you can tell.
Recently Google began sending notifications to warn webmasters of their mobile usability issues. These emails are a warning to website owners to fix their websites before the new search engine updates are applied. The emails have gone so far as to hint that there will be a direct effect on the website’s mobile ranking by saying:
“These pages will not be seen as mobile-friendly by Google Search, and will therefore be displayed and ranked appropriately for smartphone users.” - Google
In order to ensure that your ranking is not affected by this search engine update, upgrade your site to include “Responsive Design”. Web designers can upgrade your existing site or offer a more modern design with the upgrade.
