Membee’s Responsive Widgets

Having a responsive design is becoming increasingly more vital to the search success of a webpage.

Your organization’s search engine optimization (SEO) can be affected negatively if your webpage does not have a responsive design.

Google would much rather support sites with a singular domain rather than having multiples, such as having a regular site and a separate mobile site.

Mobile-responsive sites are easier for Google. It simply reduces the chances of errors with setups that are common with mobile sites.

If your members are opening a link you sent them, or simply trying to reach your website from their mobile devices they may encounter a high bounce rate if your site is not responsive. Websites not translating well on other devices is a reason for 61% of your members to become frustrated and leave.
