It is undeniable the growth in mobile phone use across the globe. Everywhere you look you see people on their phones, scrolling, tapping, texting and having their phone held up to their ear while they talk to a person on the other line.

It’s no wonder then that mobile website traffic has surpassed desktop website traffic. Are you really surprised by this fact? If you didn’t know, mobile internet usage officially surpassed desktop internet usage four years ago, back in 2015.

Can you remember back to a time when you viewed a desktop version of a website on a mobile device? How you used to have to scroll across the page to get to the other side. It wasn’t ideal.

On April 21st, 2015 Google would make an update to their algorithm. This algorithm change would place emphasis on mobile friendly websites, giving them priority in search rankings. April 21st, 2015 became known as Mobilegeddon.

So How Does This Tie In With Responsive Web Design?

We’re getting there. Responsive web design refers to a website built which is responsive to a change in screen size. The content, images and overall layout of the website does not change.

The responsive website will automatically fit to the device you are viewing it on. Responsive web design caters for four main screen types; traditional desktop, laptop screen, a tablet and the mobile phone.

Responsive design is a vital way of optimising your website to its full potential. Not only will you draw in desktop user’s, but you will draw in mobile users too.

This is a highly important factor if you were absorbing the information we provided to you about mobile website traffic surpassing desktop. Latest statistics show that in 2018, 52.2% of all website traffic worldwide was generated through mobile phones.

The Benefits of Mobile Responsive Web Design

Due to its optimisation and functionality a responsive web design offers the best experience to users on any device.

Responsive web design also increases your websites visibility on search engines. This is a very good thing as a goal of any business owner should be to rank on the first page of a search engine to create maximum visibility.

While additionally providing smooth sailing and an enhanced user experience, it is an easy and convenient way of increasing your sales and conversions. If your website is not mobile friendly you will be placed below websites that are on search engine pages.

In this day and age to keep up you need responsive web design. Your business will fall behind without it.
