What is Responsive Website Design?  Responsive Design is a website that’s built with specific code that allows us to build a website that will adapt to whatever device and screen size it’s being viewed on.  A website that’s built with Responsive Design will automatically re-size itself based upon the device that is viewing it, so whether someone is viewing the site on a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone, we are able to design a functional site with the end user in mind, based on the device type that is accessing the website.

Benefits to Responsive Web Design

There are a lot of benefits to Responsive Website Design.  With this type of web design, only one website needs to be updated when changes occur.  Mobile website have a separate url, and therefore they’re a separate website that will need to be updated each time a change is made that you want to appear on the mobile version of your website.  Responsive design is also more friendly for search engines, and you only have to focus on attaining rankings for one site.  Adding conversion and redirect codes is much easier with Responsive Design.

Responsive web design can ultimately lessen long-term maintenance of your website, allowing you as the business owner to focus resources on attracting qualified visitors to your website, as opposed to spending money on constant redevelopment.
