What is Responsive Web Design?

responsive-web-design

 A responsive website adapts to the resolutions of just about any device. This means your clients can easily read content on a computer, tablet or smartphone. If your website was designed before responsive (mobile friendly) sites were popular then it makes it very difficult for people to use your site with a mobile device. This means they will have to "pinch and zoom" content on every page. It also makes contact forms and other features very difficult to use.

Why should I care?

Today as much as 50% of web traffic comes from tablets and phones. If your site is not easy to navigate, chances are your competitor's website is.

Does it requre I redesign my website from scratch?

Not always! There are some software addons that can make a website mobile friendly. It is of course always recommened to make sure your site is responsive when you begin any new site or website redesign project.

How can I tell if my website is responsive?

This website http://responsivedesignchecker.com/ will allow you to enter your website and see how it looks on all popular devices.

Is Your Website Hurting Your Business?

web-design-on-mac

 Web design has changed over the years and your potential new clients have many options when they hit the search engines looking for your product or service. If you already have a website does your site fit into any of these situations?

1) Keep it current - If you have a calendar make sure it's up-to-date. If you don't have a calendar be sure to post something new or even blog at least once a month to show that your active and you care about your website. Ignoring your website is the same as not cleaning a physical store. It becomes dusty and clients are turned off.

2) Mobile Friendly - What does your site look like on a mobile phone or tablet? Do you have to zoom in and out or does the content fit the screen?

3) Being Exclusive to Social Media - Do you have an active social media account on Facebook or another platform? Do you post frequent updates to your customers? Don't let social media stray you away from your website. Just because you have been active on social media for 5 or more years doesn't mean everyone uses it. New customers go to Google and other search engines to find a product or service. Your website should contain the same information you are including on social media. Make sure your website has recent photo galleries and related announcements.

4) Lack of Incoming Links - If you're active on blogs and social media be sure to link to your website. A lack of incoming links can hurt your search engine rankings. A great idea is to post new content on your website and then post a link on social media to increase traffic to your website. Search engines may increase your ranking if they see links coming in from social media sites and blogs.

5) Outdated Design - If your website is over 3 years old it may be time for a new look. This is a great time to make it mobile friendly. Most major websites you visit have changed over the past 3 years. It's like a virtual fresh coat of paint to make your business look clean and inviting.

How you can make your website rank better

imac-tablet-laptop
Here are some possible reasons your website isn't showing up when you search for popular keywords.

Bad SEO - If your site is not optimized you can get lower rankings.  If you use descriptive page headings, urls and titles it will improve how you rank.

Poor or Thin Content - Descriptive content that explains your product or service in detail will increase the odds that a keyword search has matching content on your site.  If you get calls or emails asking the same basic questions on a repeated basis then you should reevaluate the material on your website.  

Lack of Backlinks - The amount of incoming links from high quality sites will make a big impact on how you rank.  This can be from a professional blogger, social media or a reputable business directory.  It's a good practice to post content or blog on your website and then link to it from social media.  This gives you a presence on both and drives traffic back to your website.

Errors or Outdated Design - An older website that generate errors can impact how search engines rank the site.  It's also extremely important that you have a responsive design that adapts and is easy to read on a phone or tablet.  If your website requires you to zoom and pan around on a phone then it's not a responsive design.  As much as 50% of traffic comes from smartphones and tablets now so if you only focus on what your website looks like on a computer then you are missing half of your target audience.
