Why is Responsive Design so important

“Research show that over 70% of searches online now come from a mobile device.”

With the growth of smartphones, tablets and other mobile computing devices, more and more people are using smaller-screen devices to view through web pages.

In April 2019, Google has announced that they will consider the mobile-first index as a major concern for search ranking, which means that – a website that has responsive design will have higher search ranking, compare to a website that doesn’t.

 

How Does Responsive Web Design Work

Responsive website uses fluid grids. All the page elements are sized by proportion rather than pixels. Media such as images will be resized relatively.

A mobile responsive web site includes design elements such as:

  • Readable text without requiring zoom
  • Adequate space for tap targets
  • No horizontal scrolling
