Web design is constantly evolving. A static website used to be the only type of website that was available. It is a website that fits a standard static desktop computer screen. A couple of years ago all websites were built this way. But a static website does not adapt to fit different screen sizes and it does not display properly if viewed from a mobile phone.
There are now more people accessing the internet using handheld devices than desktop computers. To be seen by these people you need to change from a static site to a mobile-friendly site .
Google has said that they want one mobile-friendly website that adapts to all devices and added that they will penalise websites that are not responsive.
At Forthweb all our new East Lothian web designs are built to be mobile-friendly. We build one site that adapts to fit any device.
If you have an existing static website then we can convert it to a responsive mobile-friendly design. Contact us for details.
