Responsive Web Design (RWD)
Responsive web design (RWD) means using fluid grids, flexible images and CSS media queries to build a website. There are a number of other terms used such as "flexible", "liquid", "fluid", and "elastic" to describe this type of site structure which can sound technical. Don't be put off though, in the simplest terms, RWD makes web pages render well on a variety of devices and screen sizes to ensure usability and satisfaction.
Some of the technical details for RWD include things such as:
- The fluid grid uses percentages, rather than pixels or points.
- Flexible images are also sized in relative units to prevent them from displaying outside their containing element.
- Media queries allow the page to use different CSS style rules based on the device the site is being displayed on.
The important detail however is that Google boosts the ratings / page ranking of sites that are mobile friendly if the search was made from a mobile device! Therefore, responsive web design has become critically important as the amount of mobile traffic now accounts for more than half of internet traffic. Due to the growing volume of usage of web browsing via mobile devices - mobile compatibility / optimization can no longer be ignored.
There are multiple ways to achieve mobile compatibility, but responsive web design is a cost-effective and efficient alternative to managing multiple websites designed for unique screen dimensions due to its ability to house all of the code in a single website and have pages render well on a variety of devices and screen sizes.
