Rather than having a regular site and the added expense of a mobile version, I offer one website design that adjusts (responds) to different devices – whether that is a smart phone, a tablet, or a desktop computer.
These sites are called “Mobile Responsive Websites”.
The fastest growing segment of sales in the computer industry for the last several years has been smart phones and tablets.
Over 80% of internet users now have a smartphone, and they have overtaken PC use for internet searches. Mobile-responsive remains the biggest advancement in website development in years.
Google and other search engines favor showing websites that are responsive in their search results.
According to eMarketer, most surveyed individuals preferred the experience of a mobile browser offered to search for content over an app.

Responsive Website Design
Not only is it a better experience for the user, a responsive website design is more cost effective to create a responsive website design for a new site, or making major upgrades to an existing site.
There are two reasons:
- first, we don’t need to duplicate coding, and
- second, we won’t have to create unique content for the mobile site.
What is the difference between a mobile-friendly site and a responsive site?
A Responsive site is mobile friendly, but a mobile-friendly site is not necessarily Responsive.
Responsive means that the same site will respond to the user’s device and look good on your desktop computer as well as using the same information in a rearrangement of elements of the site to look good on mobile devices.
A Mobile-Friendly site is made only to look good on a mobile device.
A Shift in Thinking
Mobile users are looking for a different experience than desktop users. Quick information with minimal effort and confusion are even more important on a small device.
Desktop users want as much information as they can get, as long as it is organized well, while mobile users want concise information.
Mobile users favor smaller navigation systems, with the navigational links contained within the content. Search functionality, typically in the top banner, takes on a more important role.
Also, providing links to the top of the page, as it can be more cumbersome to scroll up and down on a mobile screen.
