[ultimate_info_banner banner_title=”What is responsive web design (RWD)?” banner_desc=”RWD websites are fluid. Just think of the images and text in your website like a liquid—moving, stacking and resizing to fill the confined screen space of a phone, tablet or laptop. The advantage?

Top 5 reasons to upgrade to a responsive design website

HIGHER GOOGLE RANKINGS   If your website doesn’t work on mobile, your Google search engine ranking will be lower on mobile devices (and Google has an 85% market share on mobile devices in 2018).

INCREASED MOBILE TRAFFIC   As of Q2 2018, 41% of U.S. web traffic originated from mobile devices, up from 26% in 2015.

PREFERRED BROWSING EXPERIENCE   Your website visitor deserves a consistent experience, without squinting or screen-pinching to enlarge tiny type.

IMPROVED SEO   A mobile-optimized site provides improved search engine optimization (SEO).

FASTER WEBPAGES  In a world of ever-shorter attention spans, no one wants to wait for pages to load.
