Google Standards!

Responsive web design (RWD) is a setup where the server always sends the same HTML code to all devices and CSS is used to alter the rendering of the page on the device. Google’s algorithms should be able to automatically detect this setup if all Googlebot user agents are allowed to crawl the page and its assets (CSS, JavaScript, and images).

What does this mean?
For those of you who are not familiar with these web terms, you are probably wondering what this means! The usage of smartphones and tablet devices used to surf the web is ever growing. Ensuring your website is optimised to work on all devices is a MUST.

Responsive Design
Responsive websites allow for easy navigation as well as easy reading. Without resizing, panning and scrolling the device.
There is a huge number of various screen sizes from smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, and even HDTVs. It is critical that your site can adjust to any screen size making it easy for the user to navigate around the website efficiently.

Is your website optimised effectively for all devices and platforms? Don’t just think about mobile or desktop, think about every single device size a user on the web could use. Responsive websites are designed to provide the best viewing experience across all platforms.


How Does It Work?
Responsive design allows the same website to adapt to the target device’s screen size without compromising the aesthetics and functionality. This is done by special code parameters within the CSS code that dynamically adjust elements on the web page depending on the size of the browser window (this will usually be the same size of the screen). This coding is very important because it needs to have been written from the ground up with responsive elements in mind.

Older websites that haven’t been written with responsiveness in mind, will be a lot more cumbersome to convert over to a responsive design that will be reliable and consistent across devices.
