Responsive Web Design Tips

YResponsive Web Design Tipsesterday one of my clients was asking about responsive web design. The best way to explain it is. Three columns wide for desktop, two columns wide for tablet and one column wide for phone. So if your website is truly responsive it will be easily viewable on any and all devices.

However, even with a mobile responsive theme, your page might NOT be as mobile friendly as it could be.

Here are a few tips you can follow that will help people easily read your blog on their device.

The Headline

The headline should be enticing and short.  The shorter the better.  You want the title to fit on one or two lines of a mobile device.

Make It Easy To Read

Use short paragraphs. Each paragraph should be just a few sentences.

Use short sentences.  Short concise sentences are easy to read and scan.

Use bullet points for ease of reading.

Increase Font Size

Small fonts are hard to read on a desktop computer, let alone on a mobile screen.

If your blog has an extremely small font size, you might want to adjust it in the theme so it is easier to read.

Less is More

Avoid clutter on your site.  Make it easy for people to scan and find what they are looking for.

Follow these tips and your responsive site will pay dividends on the mobile device as well as the desktop.
