It’s hard to believe that I first wrote about Responsive Web Design a full year ago! As noted then, Responsive Web Design had become one of the hottest trends in 2013, and there is still no end in sight as more and more people are using smaller-screen devices to view Web pages. Internet traffic from tablets and smartphones recently surpassed traffic from traditional computers – and those traffic numbers are only going to become more lopsided as time goes on.
This month I attended an excellent webinar given by Kirk Biglione entitled “Think Mobile: Strategies for Success on the Mobile Web,” which once again reminded me that the mobile Internet is not a passing fad, and must be attended to. However, it’s not clear yet what impact the transition will have on businesses that rely on the web to generate leads, sales, and provide customer support.
“Responsive Web Design” is a hot topic in the design community, and there’s no shortage of responsive WordPress themes that transform an ordinary website into a modern, mobile-friendly, masterpiece. But if you believe a “responsive” WordPress theme is all you need, your web presence may not be as mobile-friendly as you think. Kirk Biglione explains why in this recent blog post and provides a list of action items you can use to help ensure your website is truly mobile-friendly.
