More About Mobile Friendly ‘Responsive’ Websites

The term responsive refers to the websites ability to automatically change and re-size to fit the screen size it is being viewed on. We’ve all seen non-responsive websites, fonts are too small to read, pages don’t fit the screen and menus often just don’t work at all.

Any self respecting techie will you that it is essential to have a responsive website as the growth in the use of smartphone and tablet technology has, in just a few short years, significantly changed the way we access the internet. Not only are more people than ever using smartphones and tablets to access the internet but search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo prioritise websites that are responsive in their results listings over websites that are not.

So What Do You Need to Do?

Every website we build is responsive. This doesn’t cost extra, it’s standard practice now and it’s essential. If you already have a website that is non-responsive, we can re-build it quickly and easily if you keep the existing design and don’t change the content, i.e. the words and images.

That said it’s always worth revisiting designs and content regularly anyway. There are constant improvements and innovations in website functionality that can improve the look and feel of a website and the message and information published on your website might need updating as time moves on.

"nifty website designers have helped our company to take off at a speed we could not have anticipated. They have shown saint like patience with the little understanding we have with the workings of websites and internet marketing in general. They have worked and been readily on call at weekends and late into the evening and their enthusiasm for the project was inspiring. I would highly recommend them to any company be it a start-up or a mature operation.”
