Responsive web design is the method of developing a website to automatically adjust to the device and screen size which is used to view the site. Using a responsive design, a website will transform to give an optimal user experience across mobiles, tablets and PCs.
121 Web Consultancy develops all new websites using responsive design and can also fix websites which are not mobile friendly, although depending on the code and structure of your current website, this may mean starting from scratch.

Aodhan Cullen, chief executive of StatCounter, said: "This should be a wake up call especially for small businesses, sole traders and professionals to make sure that their websites are mobile friendly. Many older websites are not."
"Mobile compatibility is increasingly important not just because of growing traffic but because Google favours mobile-friendly websites for its mobile search results."
