If you aren’t mobile responsive, you really should consider scheduling an appointment with the web development team from Knoxweb. Knoxweb has the tools and the expertise to build you a mobile responsive website that your customers and Google will love.

Back in April of 2015, Google released its new algorithm that penalized businesses and organizations that were not user friendly. Websites that aren’t mobile responsive are difficult to use on mobile devices, even though they look fine on a PC or laptop.

According to Knoxweb, both a mobile responsive website and a mobile site will optimize your website to make it more appropriate for a smaller screen. Both types of websites load faster and offer a simple approach to navigation. However, there are some differences when it comes to a mobile responsive and a mobile site.

A Mobile Website

A mobile website is a completely separate version and is designed to be used on all mobile devices exclusively.

Knoxweb explains that a mobile version usually has a limited amount of the pages that are displayed on your other desktop website. However, there is also a link that users can click to take them to the full desktop website version. This will give customers and potential clients the opportunity to source additional information from the desktop version.

When mobile device users come to the website there will be an auto detect that recognizes the device that is being used and sends the visitor to your mobile version. Because a mobile website is merely a condensed version of your desktop site, it is more affordable and can give you a short-term solution.

Responsive Website Design.

A mobile responsive website is designed to be used on all devices. A mobile responsive website will look the same on Smartphones, Smartwatches, tablets, laptops, and desktops.

According to Knoxweb, there is no need to create a separate version of your website, as your content will adjust automatically to the dimensions of your screen. It really is one website for every device.

Responsive websites are great for Search Engine Optimization as all of your pages are live on one domain address. Another advantage of having a mobile responsive website is that Google recommends it.

One of the biggest benefits of having a mobile responsive website for your business or organization is that your users will have a consistent brand experience on every device whether he or she is on a desktop or a Smartphone. With a mobile responsive site, your colors, fonts, calls to action and the rest of your content will be displayed in a similar fashion.

Another advantage is that the technology used for a mobile responsive site is more forward thinking as once it is created it can work with next month or even next year’s new devices without any additional programming required.

When it comes to your online presence, it is important to be consistent. If your customers and potential clients have a difficult time accessing your information, especially if you are sending them to a desktop version on a mobile device, you could lose business.
