WHAT IS RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN?
Websites as we all know, may be accessed from desktops or from mobile devices like smart phones and tablets. And, websites today need to be built with mechanisms to accept such requests and perform well irrespective of the source of the request. Such web design that takes into account the users’ device, its screen size and orientation and the users’ behaviour and responds seamlessly to deliver the most optimum experience irrespective of the device is known as Responsive Web Design.
WHY DO RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN?
To answer this question, it is important to look at what search engines value today. Definitely, search engines have evolved over the years. This is established by this infographic of 2012, showing a much greater overlap between SEO and user experience design. Needless to say, seamless user experience means positive user experience. And providing superior user experience certainly means higher SEO benefits. Therefore it is no wonder that Google recommends responsive web design as the industry best practice.
Let us look at a scenario where a website has two different versions for desk top and mobile users. Having a different website for each kind of user may create a discontinuity when sharing content from one platform and viewing on another platform. That said, website owners would also incur higher costs when maintaining two different sites. Besides, if the mobile website is designed for any particular screen size and resolution like the smart phone, it may not necessarily render effectively on the tablet. Therefore making web design responsive becomes the apparent solution to adopt; we do not deny, with a few exceptions of course.
And, last but not the least important, search engine optimization efforts are most optimum if all traffic is driven to a single URL. Which means, irrespective of the source of the traffic (desk top or mobile devices), if all traffic reaches a single URL, SEO and SEM outcomes can become significantly better.
