What is a Responsive Website?
Responsive design is the practice of having a website that adapts to the device it is being viewed upon. It is clearly the future – it’s a great way to adapt to any platform. It is becoming a very hot topic among mobile marketers.
Looking for a Responsive Website Developer?
Responsive design is really awesome… Most of our clients require it for their websites. Responsive design means “mobile phone friendly”, but not strictly a mobile solution. Responsive web development is a revolutionary step to make website designing more attractive and user friendly.
Responsive design is the hottest topic in front-end Web development right now. It is based on web standards and supported in all modern web browsers. It is easy and extremely important to optimize your site’s layout based on the screen size of your user. It is a trend to provide mobile internet users with a good user experience.
In 2012 – Google saw a 400% increase in Smart phone users and mobile platforms – it was due to this increase that they likely decided to jump into the cell phone market and create their android operating system and buy Motorola.
Responsive design is definitely gaining the much needed attention that it deserves. As far as work – it is more work up front, but really pays off in the long run. It is awesome, it allows you to develop for all types of devices at the same time and great at offering effective user experiences across multiple devices.
How Responsive Web Sites Work
It can have a major impact on your content. Responsive design is usually more on the programming side, where you detect the user’s browser (via useragent) or the size of their screen, and actually show them a different view based on the size of their device. For example, you might use a three column layout for desktops, a two column layout for tablets, and a single column layout on smartphones. In this case, the view on each device looks very different, because you are actually changing the view based on the device.
Responsive design can have a major impact on your content. I’ll tell you how it works, how it can affect your content, and why you should—and need to—care.
Responsive design. Mobile first. Progressive enhancement. These, and any other technical approaches where your content can take different forms across channels and platforms, present a challenge to content strategists. The content you create needs to be flexible.
Responsive design is the practice of having one website that adapts to the device it is being viewed upon. Or, more simply: one website for all screens.
Responsive design is a revolutionary new way of thinking about how to develop websites to meet the needs of traditional desktop and laptop users as well as grow the mobile and tablet audience.
There are two ways to do Responsive Design and Responsive Web Development:
1. Create a script that will detect the user and adjust setting of your site based on the user.
2. Create a separate mobile-version of the site. (Recommended only if #1 is not possible)
For SEO, #1 is better. But #2 can be done without throwing away your current website, especially if it works.
There are two distinct challenges with these approaches, however. First, some device detection scripts can have difficulty keeping up with the massive amount of mobile devices that continue to hit the market, making them a less-than-perfect solution. Second, creating and maintaining separate mobile- and tablet-specific sites increases development costs and extends timelines.
In either case. Making your website responsive to all types of devices is very important – especially in the future.
