If you are the owner of a smartphone, it’s likely that you have come across websites that look absolutely awful on your mobile device. Websites that lack responsive design are difficult to navigate and often display poorly on a phone or tablet. While mobile friendly sites used to be considered a “nice to have” feature, this is no longer the case.
Google recently updated their search algorithm to prefer sites that are mobile friendly.
What does this mean for your website? If your site was designed with a mobile friendly theme, don’t fret; but if you are unsure if your site is responsive, take a moment to review your site site from a mobile device. Mobile friendly designs should be a top consideration in the web development process. According to Pew Research Center, close to two-thirds of mobile users accessed the internet from a mobile device in 2013; a number that is only expected to increase.
