Responsive Web Design

by Martin

Once upon a time…
PCs and laptops were the most common way of browsing the wonderful world wide web… well not anymore!

According to Sky News smartphones have overtaken laptops as the most popular device for getting online. This is one of the many reasons it is imperative that your website is responsive.

So what is a responsive website I hear you ask? It is a website that is built so that it looks as great on a mobile phone as it does a tablet device or a laptop. This means that is just as recognisable and user friendly on mobile as it is on desktop.

Two-thirds of the UK now owns a smartphone, and young people have the highest rate of ownership, with "90% of 16 to 24-year-olds owning a device". (Imagine the amount of people viewing your website on mobile!)

According to OFCOM, "Britons are spending an hour and 54 minutes accessing the Internet on their mobiles every day - compared to just an hour and nine minutes on PCs."

This trend is so established that Google has started to boost the ratings of sites that are mobile friendly if the search was made from a mobile device.  Essentially it punishes sites that are not mobile friendly.

Every website Microtech Digital design and build is made with mobile in mind and so we can make sure that our clients can live happily ever after.
