What is a responsive website?

What is a responsive website (and how do you make one)?

If you have even a little engrossed in (to) create a website, then you know it: you have to create a responsive website. After all, you want your website to be visible and to work perfectly on all kinds of devices. On the large, wide screens of desktops and on your laptop, but also on tablets and smartphones. But what exactly is such a responsive website? And most importantly, how can you make one?

 

What is a responsive website?

A responsive website is a website whose layout automatically adapts to the resolution of the visitor's screen. The design scales with the dimensions of the screen, so that the website remains legible and usable on a lot of different devices. Other terms here often associated with his mobile-friendly and mobile first (initially designing websites for mobile devices instead of computers).

 

What does that look like?

In practice, the flexibility of your responsive website is expressed in various ways. Instead of text, titles and graphics to cut, they are for example in a mobile-friendly site w & eacute; l fully displayed. Also be other blocks that are displayed side by side on a large screen on the mobile version of your website correctly & oacute; more shown together. This way, no important information is lost.

 

Why is a responsive website important?

If you take your online business seriously, having a responsive website is very important. After all, it ensures that all your visitors can use your website perfectly. Regardless of which device they use to visit your website. As a result, you will not lose potential customers. Potential customers who would otherwise click away because the website on their screen is not working properly. That would be a waste of all your marketing efforts to get them on your website at all.

 

But there are even more advantages

Having a responsive website offers you even more benefits in addition to that optimal user experience. It is easier to build a mobile-friendly website in one time than to have a separate mobile version of your existing desktop website developed. This also saves you the costs of maintenance and possibly expanding or keeping your site up to date.

 

Also from a marketing point of view, a mobile-friendly website will yield you a lot. Search giant Google also likes it. They also want to offer visitors the best user experience, so responsive websites in many cases have an advantage and can count on a slightly higher position in the search engine. Also because they usually have a faster loading time!

 

Small disclaimer: there are of course other factors such as links and website content that also determine your ranking, but hey & hellip; everything is a bonus, right?
