Responsive vs Mobile Website Design

Google has recently introduced a new ranking signal for website listings on it’s search engine.

It states that mobile friendly sites will be ranked higher on the search listings. These are sites which automatically adjust to the size of the phone it is being viewed on. There are 2 ways to achieve this, the first is to detect the device and adjust the site accordingly usually by redirecting to the mobile site. The second is to make your site responsive, this will adjust the display according to the screen size it is being viewed on.

All our new websites are responsive so that not only are they viewed correctly on mobile devices but also on tablets in both landscape and portrait modes. This also has the added advantage that your website content only needs to be edited once, whereas with redirection both the mobile and main site needs to be amended.

Call us today to see how we can make your new website fully responsive.

  1. My website displays ok on computer and my phone but when I look at it on my tablet and turn it to portrait half of it is missing. Can you help?

    1. Hi Steve, we had a look at your site from your email address, unfortunately it uses a mobile redirect and is not responsive. If you like please send us a message and we can look into it for you.

  2. I have had a website for a while now and can view it on my new phone however to read the text I need to zoom in. I notice that some sites I visit look different on a phone compared to my computer is this what you mean by responsive?

    1. Hi Jackie, yes this is what we mean by responsive. If you resize your browser window you will see our site automatically adjusts to the size of your browser giving a clearer easier to see experience. If our site is viewed on a mobile phone the menu system completely changes to work correctly with your phone. If you would like us to evaluate your site then please click here.
