Responsive Web Design
If you have a website that is only optimized for browsing from a desktop device, many of your visitors will not get an optimized experience when they browse your website. Responsive Web Design (RWD) is the best way to make sure that visitors will get the best experience because:
- Google reward you when your website is responsive. This result is that your ranking in Google's search results will improve when your website is responsive.
- You only have to update your content one place - no need for a separate mobile friendly website and the extra work which comes alone.
- The use of mobile devices is steadily increasing. But mobile devices are not the only devices used to access the internet. Here you can get an overview of most popular devices used in the US between 2010 - 2015.
