What are the main reasons why you changed your website template into a responsive design?

For me, it has 3 reasons that I used responsive design for all my blogs

- Saves time and money
- Google recommends responsive design for better rankings on mobile search results.
- Increase traffic with mobile users

What are yours? why?

TIME SAVING

Being a web designer, my main reasoning is simply the time it saves not having to create
different sites for each different device. When mobile and tablets first started becoming
the "next best thing since sliced bread", every client wanted us to update their site and
include a mobile and tablet version... and, of course, "it shouldn't cost any more because
it's all part of the design, right?" BS...

IMPROVED FUNCTIONALITY

Ever since you could start viewing sites on your cellphone, even the cheapest flip phones
initially, I started designing to appeal to both computer and mobile users, JUST IN CASE, but,
I was then also very limited as to what type of functionality I could include, but that often
meant a lack of features for computer based visitors, lol.

But more importantly, MY CUSTOMERS BENEFIT THE MOST

The benefits for my customer actually outweighs the benefits for me. Designing "responsive"
sites not only ensures cross-device accessibility (without sacrificing anything) but it also helps
with sales and conversions. Plus, it saves them money in terms of SEO. Prior to responsive sites,
you'd have to, essentially, have 2 sites, which meant more time spent on SEO and more money
spent as well.

Nope, responsive sites make my primary job so much easier, has many benefits for my customer
and yeah, ok, there's also that little "Google Recommends" factor as well. :)

I don't use any designs unless it is responsive. I read somewhere that 70% of your websites customers and/or members will use a phone to access it so it's utterly important that it is responsive and works flawlessly on any device.

This really should be considered and noted for website owners who have not converted their web design to responsive design because they could lose their visitors.

Responsive design is important for mobile users because more than sixty percent of website traffic is from mobile phone users.

If a mobile user goes to a non responsive website then most likely they will leave immediately the same effect as if a website is slow most people would leave.

Responsive webdesign are those designs which will run on your desktop system, laptop, tablet and mobile etc. properly when they load. Responsive websites are displayed properly in any resolution. You should have proper CSS for working of the responsive site.

Advantages of responsive website -

1. Contents used to move easily and freely from one resolution to another, you don't have to make any special adjustment for running the site.
2. Best user experience as users can access it easily on any device any time.
3. Responsive site is the main factor for SEO now a days. The rank of responsive website has top rank than the normal website.
4. Google considers the mobile responsive sites when there is matter of mobile usability of site.

Disadvantages of responsive website -

1. The overall website loading time is more of the responsive website.
2. It will might not run properly in all web browsers, there might be browser incompatibility issue.
