5 Responsive Rumors

Responsive Rumors

Much like the most popular girl in high school, responsive web design is beautiful, intriguing and comfortable in almost all situations. For these reasons, it’s also had to deal with a fair amount of rumors. Some of the most common misconceptions?

  • Responsive design is too expensive. Responsive design doesn’t have to be pricey, and designers are always working toward more cost-effective methods.
  • It will mess with SEO. Responsive sites actually rank higher in search results due to quicker loading times and larger amount of users.
  • It’s only for mobile. Responsive doesn’t discriminate. It’s not just about optimizing for an iPhone, but for all screen types.
  • It will slow down loading time. If anything, responsive design will improve your load time.
  • It’s all you need. Going responsive is a step in the right direction, but it’s not a reason to stop walking. It will improve the format of your site, not the content – even responsive can’t make a typo look good!

So don’t believe everything you hear. And if you’re still a little too shy, let Counterintuity introduce you to responsive web design! We’re used to hanging with the cool kids.
