What is responsive website design?
Responsive website design refers to a website that is designed to adapt to any device a visitor is using. This allows easy for easy reading and navigation of a website visitor.
How do I know if my website is responsive:
Google has released a free tool that can be used to test your website responsiveness. You can run a test at: https://testmysite.thinkwithgoogle.com/
Above, you will see an example of these test results. By clicking on each of the elements, Google will tell you more about what you can do to improve your responsiveness. Mobile friendliness, in this case is where you would want to focus on first and will be the most important factor of mobile responsiveness.
Why Should My Website Be Mobile Responsive / Optimized?
With the rise of mobile, businesses are focusing on delivering delightful mobile website experiences.
Google has made it clear that they will be favoring mobile friendly websites, seeing that there are currently more searches on smartphones than on desktop computers. Going forward, I’m confident that they will continue to raise the bar for mobile friendly websites. Businesses that don’t have mobile friendly sites yet, better prioritize it now before they disappear from search results.
