Responsive web design is an approach to creating a website that allows it to work on any device; whether it’s a mobile phone, tablet, TV or a laptop.
Ever since people have been able to access internet from their mobile phones, website owners have been creating ways to help the users better navigate their website on every device.
Whether a website is being viewed on a phone or computer, or being browsed with a mouse or touchscreen, it should look and function properly.
Should my website be responsive?
The short answer is Yes.
According to official Google statements, more than 50 percent of search queries globally now come from mobile devices. Having a website that works on any device will increase the chances of visitors staying longer and engaging more. This results in better rankings on Google and more sales for your business!
How to check if a site is responsive
You can see responsive design in action by dragging the corner of your browser window to make it bigger or smaller. You’ll notice the content shrinking until a certain point (the breakpoint), and then automatically reorganizing itself to better fit the new width.
*tip: this website is also responsive, try it now!
