In the past, businesses didn’t need to worry too much about their site displaying properly on mobile phones and tablets. Now, users are surfing the web and using the internet across a variety of devices, all with varying screen sizes and resolutions. What does this mean for your website?
Your site needs to be able to respond to the device it is being viewed within. This means, simply, that your site should be accessible, attractive, and retain its core functionality, no matter how visitors choose to access it. Thankfully, most good website development teams have been preparing for this.
Having a responsive website design is very important, and search engines like Google have begun to factor in the accessibility and load speed of your site in mobile browsers, into their search engine ranking algorithm. Think about how often you visit your favorite sites from your phone or tablet, chances are it’s quite frequently.
Of course, creating a good user experience is a factor in designing your site for a premium experience across as wide a variety of devices as is possible. You want your website navigation to be perfect, and your images to scale appropriately, so that no part of your website gets lost in translation when viewed on mobile devices.
There are some things that cannot be accomplished on smaller screens, and sometimes having a responsive element of your website is not feasible, but these types of situations can be overcome with the right team advising you. Contact us to talk more about your current web needs.
