A Perfect Mobile User Experience Starts with Webster Digital
In today’s modern age, more and more people are accessing the internet on their smartphones and tablets. As a result of this demand, it is essential that your website can load properly and be used easily on all screen sizes and devices.
Responsive mobile websites are not separate entities to your desktop website, they simply respond to certain conditions, mainly screen sizes. A normal desktop-only website will load on most screen sizes and a visitor using a tablet or mobile can zoom in on the areas that they are interested in. It works, but web design is better than that – websites should be easy to use and offer the correct information to visitors as quickly as possible; having to zoom in doesn’t really shout quick or easy, does it?
Our Mobile-Friendly build process
So how do we overcome this? Technology provides the answer. At Webster Digital, our mobile websites are optimised for visitors using the latest smartphones and tablets. This involves different layouts being created for different devices. Our websites are mobile-friendly from the core, utilising responsive technologies to create different website layouts to suit all screen sizes.
In our websites, each page usually has six layouts:
Desktop Ultra-Wide (1280 pixels plus), Desktop Standard (960 pixels plus), Tablet Landscape, Tablet Portrait, Mobile Landscape and Mobile Portrait.
This responsive technology allows us to use code so that the smartphone and tablet layouts do not require switching on, they are part of the site and only become active if a user views the website on a mobile device. As with all good technology, it’s quick, easy and invisible unless required.
Layouts for smartphones and tablets are generally simplified versions of the standard layout design, but the content is optimised for viewing on those smaller screen sizes. We crunch the image sizes down so that the layouts load quickly on mobile networks and enlarge text so that everything is easy to read on all screens.
Why your business needs a responsive website and how we can help
Obviously, as previously mentioned, having a responsive website helps visitors to use and view your website on a wide range of devices. However, there is another reason why businesses must ensure that their websites are always responsive: Google will not allow websites to rank on local searches made from mobile devices, if the website is not mobile-friendly.
With nearly 60% of all Google searches occurring on mobile devices now, it could be detrimental to your business’s success if your website does not work and therefore does not rank for smartphone and tablet searches.
If you already have a website, but it’s not yet fully responsive, fear not – we can still help! Our team of experts will be able to convert your old site so that it becomes mobile-friendly and usable on all devices. If you are looking to have a new website built, this too will be responsive from its roots and will always work seamlessly, no matter which device your visitors are using.
