Responsive design is a new web-term which has been entered in English lexicon. It is a design which provides an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices. Structure of the Responsive design is really easy to adapt to various screen sizes. The sequential arrangement of blocks deprived of embellishments undergoes changes quite smoothly and effortlessly, giving users a nice-looking and well-organized layout. This blog is a mighty example of the approach so we will reveal a few facts about the uses of responsive web designing.
This blog lists the top four of them:
Fluidity: Responsive web design is fluidic. It means that it moves content, grids, and images to fit all screen resolutions across devices. It saves users from incessant scrolling (up and down, left and right) and improves user experience.
User Friendly: With Responsive designs, content is easily accessible for all the devices. This gives a better user experience; hence making the design user friendly. This design also ensures that visitors always receive the information they are looking for – which keeps them on page! Going responsive is the most effective way to make the most of mobile and tablet traffic, and to offer visitors the best possible user experience.
Easy to Maintain: Creating multiple versions of your website is costly and cumbersome. Considering just a desktop, iPad and iPhone for example, means that you will need to triple your efforts when looking to make an update to your web page. With Responsive web design you’ll avoid this extra effort completely. Your website will work seamlessly on different devices and so when you need to update your website you only update one platform through your content management system. In the long run this will save you time and help avoid headaches with having to work on multiple versions of your website.
Improves your SEO: The benefit here is in the fact that you will only need to optimize content for one link. The URL structure remains constant for all devices. With Responsive design you have one URL that is easy to update and optimize your content which in turn optimizes your content for all devices. Whether it’s a Samsung phone, iPad or desktop responsive web design makes it easy for the Google crawlers to index your website pages.
