Responsive website design is an approach that embraces the needs of many different screen sizes. Gone are the days when the web was experienced mainly on desktop computers, which made design fairly simple. The majority of people are now using the web on a variety of mobile devices, namely smartphones and tablet computers. This has required a shift in thinking when it comes to building a site.
What Responsive Design Is
In a nutshell, responsive design is a layout that automatically adjusts page elements depending on the size of the user’s browser. This gives a website a familiar look and feel, regardless of where it is being viewed. It will display as well on a smartphone as it does on a widescreen monitor. This provides flexibility and avoids the issue of having to build a separate mobile site.
How A Responsive Design is Built
This method of design is centered around a fluid grid, which uses proportions to reorder elements when the page is resized. Some special CSS elements are also applied to keep the design from breaking down when the screen size drops below a certain width. These are called media queries, and they are part of the foundation of a responsive design. It is not always feasible to create a design that will look pixel-perfect in every resolution, so the designer must focus on the resolutions that matter the most.
Why Responsive Design is Used
Using a responsive design will keep a website consistent, not only to visitors, but also to search engines. This allows for better SEO as spiders no longer have to crawl a desktop and a mobile version, which leads to inconsistent indexing and ranking. A responsive design is also future-proof. The mobile web is growing and more devices will be coming online in the years to come. A responsive website will easily be able to meet those needs and eliminate having to rebuild a site from scratch.
Responsive website design is still a new trend, but is bound to keep growing in popularity as the digital world expands.

There are all kinds of websites on the Internet. The world wide web is home to large scale webpages visited by millions, and smaller niche websites frequented by a few. No matter sort of website you run, whether for business or pleasure, it could probably benefit from search engine optimization.
Search engine optimization gets websites ranked highly when people use search engines to find things. The first thing people do today when they’re looking for something is type in a string of keywords on a site such as Google. In this way, getting that string of keywords to reach your webpage is the best way you can drive traffic to a website today. There’s a lot of time and effort that goes into quality SEO. Good search engine optimization should look organic and act as a guide to help someone find what they’re looking for, if not provide the service itself.
Modern search engines have a ton of different formulas that determine how a webpage pops up at the top. At the forefront of this is unique visitors. Search engines track unique IP data which lets them know how popular a website is. This in turn determines that the website is the most useful, and the website pops up at the top of the search. It can get a lot more complicated than that, however. For small businesses, putting keywords in the body of an article can send the person to that website almost immediately when they type in a similar search term. Plenty of competitors already have websites set up and may have SEO services in play. One of the best ways to get an edge over a competitor in the online world is by utlizing the right keywords in the body of a website’s text.
Since SEO is so complicated, it’s a great idea to hire a professional who knows exactly what he or she is doing. This is especially true when competing with larger sites. A knowledgable SEO professional knows exactly how to utilize SEO for maximum results. While driving traffic to a website can be easy, the trouble often lies in making sure it’s quality traffic. Many people online search for things and end up in a place they didn’t want to be. This in turn often wastes time for them. They usually don’t employ the service anyway. An SEO professional can handle all of the back end work, and drive quality traffic to a webpage.
