Today, even small businesses need their websites to make a big impact if they’re going to be successful online.
Sites that are slow to load, difficult to navigate or poorly designed for mobile simply won’t work anymore. And unless sites are optimized for search engines, it’s becoming more difficult for interested users to even find them in the first place.
Let us build you a fast, user-friendly site that’s optimized for search engines and which displays beautifully on all devices. All of our website packages are designed for small-medium sized businesses that need a quality, cost-effective site in weeks, not months.
Beautiful on all devices
Responsive website design is the name of the game. Your site will look great and function perfectly on all devices.
SEO Windy City produces more than just “mobile-friendly” websites. We design, develop, and build responsive websites customized to ensure that it highlights the information most important to the on-the-go-visitor. In addition, we develop mobile websites that fulfill a specific purpose and encourage regular repeat visits. The user experience of visiting a mobile-optimized website should be just as seamless and delightful as using the best mobile apps.
In fact, mobile-optimized websites have several distinct advantages over apps, including:
- Mobile sites work across all mobile devices, rather than needing different versions for different devices.
- You can download icons to your mobile homepage, meaning you link straight to the website.
- Users don’t need to download regular updates as they do with apps. The mobile website can be updated immediately at any time.
What Is Responsive Web Design?
Every website has unique needs. However, every website has a common need in the Internet of Things era: mobile-friendliness and responsive design support.
Responsive web design enables the website’s layout to change to fit the specific mobile device. A widescreen display can show as multiple columns of content, whereas a small screen display will show as a single column with appropriately sized text and links.
The Importance of Mobile Optimization and SEO
Search engine optimization (SEO) now has a high dependency upon mobilization. Google has recommended moving to responsive web designs for many years in response to the proliferation of mobile devices. While Google no longer adds a “mobile-friendly” label to mobile-optimized websites, it does still reward mobile-friendly sites with better search engine rankings (on mobile devices). Websites that require lots of zooming in-and-out to see content is cumbersome and annoying to your potential customers (Google rewards sites that have a good user experience). By rewarding mobile-friendly sites, non-mobile sites are penalized in the rankings. Responsive web design is now a crucial aspect of SEO.
Responsive web design also prepares your business for the future. No matter what size screen the next innovative gadget has, your site is ready to scale up or down for a fluid user experience. The design adapts to the device. In addition, your business avoids the hassle of managing two websites: the main site and the second, mobile optimized site. With only one site to update, you achieve lower web content management costs, high ROI, and better user experience.
