While “responsive” web design technically refers to a number of different categories of how web pages can react to the way visitors access them, the single most important factor these days is mobile responsiveness. With the percentage of people accessing the web using mobile devices pretty much doubling every year since cell phones began having browsers integrated, more than half of all web traffic these days is from smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices, and that figure is only expected to continue to rise. Mobile responsiveness should no longer be a question of if it should be implemented, but how. Your customers across the San Antonio area will be much more likely to visit your stores or buy online from their phones if they can actually browse it comfortably.
There are two forms of mobile optimized sites that a domain owner can use. The first is to have a website merely redirect to a new subdomain that has been designed for the sole purpose of displaying on mobile devices and thesecond is to have the main website itself actively adjust its display depending on the resolution that the visitor is viewing the site in. While the first can have some nice usability features involved, we here at CityWide SEO prefer to use the active mobile responsive display option for our San Antonio website design clients for a number of reasons, including:
When working with CityWide SEO for your website design needs, you will have a team capable of handling anything and everything modern websites need, including some of the best responsive designs in the country.

In regards to implementing responsive website design for your San Antonio business, our team of designers and SEO experts can go beyond only active mobile responsiveness. As mentioned earlier, there is more to responsive design than just mobile, and the others include location and behavior responsive designs:
Just like how you present yourself and your business in real life, you only get one chance for your website to make a first impression. Here at CityWide SEO, we’ll not only design you a great looking site, but it will be incredibly effective at converting visitors as well.
94% of first impressions are design-related. That means that how your website is set up will be the first “hit” a visitor receives. Crowded content, out-of-date pictures and illegible fonts will drive visitors away. Similarly, if your website is not optimized to load quickly, your visitors are not going to wait around for it to load. Your site’s design must be streamlined, professional and immediately engage the reader.
62% of businesses that design a website for mobile have increased sales. There are two ways to handle mobile websites: an alternative version of your regular site or a mobile URL. Both methods have the same goal: to give mobile users the best experience possible. If a mobile user finds a company doesn’t have a mobile-friendly site, it’s unlikely the potential customer will go home and communicate with that business on a desktop or laptop. That being said, effectively reaching customers on their mobile devices is critical to the success of any business these days.
75% of people admitted to judging a company’s credibility based on web design alone. If it’s not clear by now that your design is important, perhaps this number will help to highlight that fact. With an ineffective design, this figure means that you would be throwing away three quarters of your potential income from online sources. It also means that if you brought us on board to handle your web design, there is an excellent chance your site can earn up to four times as much through online sources.
Founded with a frontier spirit, today San Antonio is still home to many businesses that embody the love of life and quest for excellence in every endeavor. Our wonderful city was founded in 1691 by Spanish priests and, since then, it has held an important role in Texas history. The San Antonio we see today, home to more than 1.3 million people and the host for 20 million visitors annually, is also packed with attractions steeped in tradition such as The Alamo. More modern visitors love strolling down Riverwalk, and our local Sea World is a treat for every member of the family.
And all of this tourism plays a crucial role in San Antonio’s local economy. With businesses across the city providing a living for millions in the great San Antonio area, our business community includes all kinds of products and services from non-profit social organizations to the development of cutting-edge technology.
