The determining factors, when designing and building a website, are your target market and the way users access the site.

Better user experience on any device
Responsive websites “mould” to the size and shape of the screen to provide users with the best possible browsing experience regardless of the device they use. Thus the same content, available normally only on desktops and laptops, is now available on tablet PC’s and smart phones.

Before making a decision whether or not to use a responsive design for your website analyse the traffic (if you don’t use Google Analytics or a similar tool, now it’s the time to do it). See if you get any significant mobile traffic or how many click are just bounces – one page visits. A responsive design will reduce the number of bounces and help you engage with users.

Responsive websites rank better than their non-responsive counterparts
Why? For starters, if you have two websites – desktop and mobile – the traffic is split between them. In addition, responsive websites are easier to crawl and index by the search engines resulting in better, more accurate results.

Great value for money
Add to the mix the fact that with a responsive design you get 2 (or even 3) websites for the price of one – who doesn’t want to save money these days – and you can’t go wrong with the responsive site.
