What defines a Responsive Website – what does this even mean?

Well, in a nutshell it means that your website looks good and works well whether viewed on a desktop, mobile device or tablet.

As more and more of us are using our phones for internet browsing and social media – and not just texting and calling – this need for a responsive website will continue.

Mobile browsing is increasing and Desktop browsing is decreasing

How do I know if my website is responsive or not?

Browse your website on a mobile phone and a tablet. If you are having to resize your page to optimise your viewing experience, your website needs some work done on it!

Alternatively, go to http://responsivedesignchecker.com/ and enter you website’s URL and check it across a number of devices. If your web page is being cut and not resizing, your website needs to be reworked to make it responsive.
