Smaller smart devices like phones, tablets and watches have led a revolution in modern website design. This is because devices require more than a simple desktop website. Customers don't want to pinch and scroll around your web page to find your telephone number or send you a message. A good website needs to have a familiar and clear layout resembling a mobile app.
Drive By Websites Ltd work on sites commonly referred to as 'Responsive' Websites. This is because our responsive websites resize and re-proportion themselves according to the device browsing them.
Why are responsive websites the new standard?
Responsiveness is vital to your Google ranking. In a blog post, Google stated that "Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimised for their devices."
Without sufficient usability, your site will also suffer from visitors leaving. Currently, 68.1% of all website visits come from mobile devices on average. With this in mind, Google wouldn't even need to test your website responsiveness to begin receiving a negative impact, because your mobile viewers would abandon your site and drive up your bounce rate.
