The Internet is no longer just for computer or laptop owners

Display media such as smartphones, tablets and even televisions have long been on the advance. Thanks to increasing Internet speeds, the use of the mobile Internet is also becoming increasingly attractive. It is not unusual for a tablet or ultrabook to be used to place an order from the couch or to call up the website address just seen on TV.

Therefore, owners of websites - especially online shops - should ensure that their website or online shop is created in "Responsive Webdesign (RWD)". This is the only way to ensure that your Internet presence is optimally displayed on all screen sizes and resolutions. It is not only an optical improvement achieved by RWD, but the visitors receive also a substantially better handling with the "use" of the side by differently arranged contents or adapted function views.
 

Important for search engine optimization!

The optimization for all end devices by RWD also plays an extremely important role for the search engine optimization (SEO) of your homepage. Since April 2015, the largest search engine operator "Google" has been differentiating between pages with and without RWD. Optimized websites are better "ranked" in the search results, thus landing further ahead / above and potentially receiving more visitors.
