    It is a website that responds to what device it is being viewed on.
    So whether the person views it on a mobile device or a laptop or computer, the page will look good for that device.

      I used to think it was just a site that converts well.... at step 1 (squeeze page to capture leads), and step 2 (converting leads to customers via email marketing and a good sales page).

      Oh well. Looks like i need to learn internet marketing all over again LOL .

    Responsive is the ideal way to go nowadays. Having one site that adapts to any device is better than managing a separate mobile site.

    For the above reasons, developers for WordPress themes offer responsive themes that can be previewed as they will appear on different devices.

    Mobile devices are starting to make a serious impact on marketing strategies, mostly for spur of the moment sales, and many a marketer can account for a good portion of their sales to originate from the field - people on the go, killing time at the doctor's office, running errands, like that. Mobile device returns depend on the kinds of things you're selling.

    Since January the majority of our traffic is now coming from mobile (approx 52%), so it is now important more than ever to have responsive websites.

      Ours too. Seems like most people don't care about opening their laptops anymore. Most of our traffic come from mobile devices and we made sure to design our site to fit these gadgets.

    It means that you have one website that runs properly on all devices.

    On a side note:
    My website worked perfectly on all devices but Google didn't see it as Mobile compatible, so I was forced to make it responsive...now Google sees it as 100% compatible, but this ended up not increasing my traffic from them, and now it doesn't work properly on my hand phone, but still works on my son's and Gfs...

      Nowadays, people use Internet resources on different devices, such as a desktop, tablet or mobile phone. And we all understand, that your website must look good on any device, that is the reason why you need a responsive website.

      To be precise, a responsive website recognize what kind of device the user is on and then adjusts all the elements of the site (text, images, etc) to fit their screen.
