Just in time for the 2014 Winter Olympics, NBCNews launched a new website- using responsive design. It is no coincidence that the network leading Olympics coverage this year, wanted to give users a positive experience both on TV and the web. By doing so, NBCNews.com
will be able to capitalize on an increase in web traffic, especially from second-screen social referrals.
Responsive Design isn’t just helpful for big brands to utilize; but as the use of tablets and smartphones continue to soar, it is no surprise that companies large and small are incorporating this new strategy into their website.
And when it comes to SEO, Jay Taylor of Search Engine Watch states, “Responsive web design is recommended by Google, it allows one website to provide a great user-experience across many devices and screen sizes, and it also makes managing your SEO strategy easier. For these reasons, responsive web design is the best option for your mobile SEO strategy.
