A responsive website fits all the screens and allows you to get a display that makes reading/browsing easier.
Most people hold their phone vertically to browse the Internet and this means displaying a website on a screen three times narrower than a computer screen.
To create a mobile website, you must consequently rearrange the content to make it narrower. To do so, the text should be contained in a narrower (and thus longer) column and the elements that were placed near each other, should now be placed one above the other.
This results to a much longer page. To solve this problem, the website content is often simplified (there are less illustrations and only the most important pieces of information are displayed).
Please note that contrary to what one may think, there is no need to enlarge the text on mobile devices, because the fact of reducing the website width allows to zoom in and thus to get a bigger view.
On April 21, 2015, Google adjusted its ranking algorithm to give a boost to mobile-friendly pages in Google’s mobile search results. This adds a second reason to optimize your website for mobiles.
To meet this need, SiteW enables you to modify your Computer website without having to create another website.
In addition to the current Computer view, you can create different views for a vertically held phone or a horizontally held phone or a vertically held tablet.
The various blocks of the website must simply be resized in order to be contained in the screen of a specific device and rearranged to be placed one above the other. You only need to use the usual moving and resizing tools of the blocks.
To make it easier, we developed a brand new tool that allows you to resize and move a selected block for it to appear in the visible area of the device.
The block content and design are synchronized according to the various views
To make your mobile website easier, blocks can be hidden for this view and blocks can be added (for instance to rephrase a paragraph and make it shorter).
The process is thus very simple and very versatile.
According to the device you use, the most appropriate view will be chosen and adjusted to the screen size, possibly with a slight margin (the blocks that exceed the screen limits in the website creation tool will be displayed in this margin only on certain devices).
SiteW mobile websites are designed to rank higher in Google’s mobile search results.
