What is Responsive Website Design?

Your website should look good, and be easy to use, regardless of the device you are using to view it.

Responsive Web Design makes your web page look and feel good on all devices such as desktops, tablets, and smart phones to name a few.

Responsive Web Design is about using CSS and HTML to resize, hide, shrink, enlarge, or move the content to make it look good on any screen.

Responsive Web Design refers to the use of proportion-based grids, CSS3 media queries and flexible images to create a universally compatible website. Although it’s been around for several years, it’s just recently gained momentum among webmasters.

Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Use Responsive Web Design

It’s Compatible Across All Devices

Responsive websites are compatible across all devices, including desktops, laptops, smart phones and tablet computers. Many webmasters overlook the importance of designing websites that are cross-compatible with multiple devices, focusing strictly on desktop traffic. A 2010 webinar presented by the Internet research firm comScore predicted that mobile Internet traffic will surpass desktop traffic by the end of the year. Failing to offer your visitors a website that’s compatible on mobile devices could result in a large chunk of your traffic going right out the door.

Eliminates The Need For a Separate Mobile Domain

Responsive Web Design eliminates the need for a separate mobile domain. When a separate mobile domain is used, it often leads to confusion among search engines due to duplicate content issues. Of course, a separate mobile domain also forces webmasters to do twice the work when performing maintenance and updates.

It’s Recommended By Google

A third reason why webmasters should use Responsive Web Designs is because it’s recommended by Google. And when the Big G recommends something, it’s usually a good idea to heed its advice. Google supports three different configurations for creating smart-phone-optimized websites, but the only one it recommends is Responsive Web Design. “Sites that use Responsive Web Design serve all devices on the same set of URLs, with each URL serving the same HTML to all devices and using just CSS to change how the page is rendered on the device. This is Google’s recommended configuration,” wrote Google in its help page for building smart-phone-optimized websites.


If you’re looking to attract organic search engine traffic, you should consider using a Responsive Web Design. Thanks to its clean code and cross-compatible function, Responsive Web Designs naturally rank well in Google and other search engines. Again, this is due in part to the simple fact that mobile Internet users can access and view them, which results in a lower bounce rate and subsequently higher search engine ranking.

More Conversions

Whether your website is designed to generate leads, newsletter sign-ups or sell a physical product, you’ll have more conversions by using a Responsive Web Design. It promotes a more positive experience for the end user, which results in more conversions on your website. This alone should be reason enough to implement a Responsive Web Design.

The main benefits to having your own web site are:

  • Your web site will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Your web site can answer questions about your business.
  • Your web site can sell your products and services even when your business is closed.
  • A web site is a very powerful and inexpensive marketing and advertising tool and a great way to expand your business locally, in other areas of the state or country.
