Responsive web design is a way to design a single website where by the design itself changes automatically based on the size of the viewer’s screen. In other words, the layout of an Responsive website changes when the viewing area increases or shrinks. The purpose of responsive web design is to automatically optimize website viewing for any device. This means websites not longer need multiple versions of a website, such as a desktop version and a mobile version.

My website is an Responsive ready website. If you try viewing on a mobile devices, ipad, laptop or desktop computer, you can see that the layout and information displayed is different. The “responsiveness” of the site reorganizes the content and displays the design components differently on each device, depending on the screen size and the orientation of the screen.

What does this mean for you? Responsive websites may be a little bit more of an investment, but more cost effective than design a desktop site and separate mobile web site(s). Responsive websites are also much easier to manage because you only have a single content management systems. I am WordPress Web design expert, so the majority of my new client websites are responsive WordPress websites.
