A mobile friendly bespoke website design is essential but as more people are choosing mobile devices as their sole browsing device we must consider a website design that is optimally designed for each and every viewing device. The share of internet usage on mobile devices, which includes smartphones and tablets, is growing exponentially every year. In 2011 mobile browsing took a share of approximately 11% of internet usage, 2013 saw this increase to 25% and this year, with the activation of more mobile devices than births, mobile browsing will actually take over traditional desktop browsing.
Google of-course has recognised this important trend in internet usage releasing an algorithm update in 2013 calledGoogle Hummingbird which introduced the importance of mobile devices to search to which it promotes this type of website accordingly. Then again in April 2015 Google enforced this change further with a mobility algorithm update penalising websites not optimised for mobile searches.

Unless you do not want to lose potential clients, then you must consider a website that is not only viewable on desktop and mobile devices but optimised for each device to give a better user experience. The responsive website design technology allows for a website to automatically respond to the device it is being viewed upon, seamlessly serving all desktops, tablets and smartphones. Not only does this cost efficient method mean there is no need to build separate websites for each device or a necessity to build a separate app, but it will mean your visitors will enjoy their experience on your site and ultimately more likely become a loyal customer!
