Fundamental Rules of Website Design
“Be Responsive” doesn’t mean replying when you are spoken to. It refers to the ability of your website to scale up or down, depending on the viewer’s monitor size. It means that your site will automagically rearrange itself to work as well on a mobile phone as a full size desktop computer.
Not only do responsive sites improve legibility and usability for mobile users, who now account for more than 50% of internet traffic. In addition, Google rewards responsive sites with higher search engine rankings.
You can test your site to see if it is responsive by minimizing the window size on your monitor, and/or by viewing it on your phone. If it is not responsive, it may be time for a new website.
Stay current and join the responsive crowd!
