Today, websites must be available on all mobile devices since 55% of website traffic comes from mobile devices. In addition, Google communicated on the importance of having a responsive website, that is to say readable on mobile devices, for the referencing of its site and therefore for the acquisition of traffic. To make your site responsive, 2 solutions are available to you: the responsive web design site or the dedicated mobile site. To help you make the right choice according to your desires and needs, discover these two solutions here.
Develop your website in responsive web design
When you develop your site in responsive web design, you have one and the same site. This automatically adapts to the screen size of each of your devices. This adaptation makes it possible to offer navigation, design and almost similar content on all your devices (computers, tablets, mobile phone). To help you design your site, there are technologies like flutter allowing you to design cross-platform applications.
Developing your site in responsive web design also offers many advantages. In fact, this allows consistent content to be disseminated from one platform to another, which provides better navigation for those familiar with your website. Regarding SEO, a responsive web design site generally has better visibility on Google search engines. However, be aware that with this solution the loading time of your pages can be slow. In addition, developing a responsive web design site can be longer because you will be thinking about the design of your site on mobile and on computer.
Create a dedicated mobile site
As the name suggests, with this solution your site can be viewed on a mobile phone exclusively. Your website and your application are not linked to each other.
Developing a dedicated mobile site has many advantages. With this method, your site is perfectly adapted to mobile devices, this means that the display is optimal on these devices. Unlike the responsive site, the loading time of your pages is faster. Finally, you can adapt your content and themes according to your targets and the device used. Conversely, this solution forces you to develop a site and an application, which requires more time and a bigger budget. In addition, at the SEO level, the mobile dedicated site is generally less efficient than a responsive site.
It’s up to you to choose the solution that best suits your needs!
