Responsive websites look great on ANY device!(see two small business samples below)
We believe the central “hub” of a marketing and social media system for any small business is their website. Having a website today means it must be “responsive” so it can adapt or respond to the particular device displaying the website. Your website should look just as good on a smartphone, tablet or laptop as it does on your desktop. But since those devices are all various shapes and sizes, it’s important to ensure your company’s website is responsive and mobile-friendly.
In April 2015, Google made the following announcement: “We will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices.” (see article here) That’s huge! As you seek to find new customers for your business, it’s imperative that you rank high in the search engine game. And Google is telling you that sites optimized or responsive will fair better than those websites that are not responsive and mobile-friendly.
Just a year or so ago, a study was done showing that only 30% of small business websites were responsive. That means 70% of websites either were old and out dated or did not even exist… YIKES!
