Frequently Asked Questions About Responsive Websites
Question: What is a responsive website?
Answer: A responsive website is one that can change to fit a variety of screen sizes and devices. A mobile format can be easily navigated on a smartphone or tablet. A traditional website looks great on a desktop or laptop, but is often cumbersome and hard to navigate on a handheld device. As a result, you could be turning away a vast majority of people looking for services if they’re viewing your website on a phone or tablet.
Question: Do I need a new website?
Answer: In some cases you may be able to create a mobile version of your current website. However, if you are already investing in this you may consider completely updating your current site to ensure it functions smoothly on a variety of devices.
Question: Does being mobile-friendly help SEO?
