Holiday Choices - now fully responsive
A little bit of news here at Internet Affiliation central, "Holiday Choices" is now
fully responsive. I know, a little late - Google made it clear a responsive website should be order
of the day, several months ago. Things don't happen overnight, but now, finally, it's done.
This is the header of Holiday Choices - it's what you'll see when you visit the site!
What is a responsive website
You may have heard the term "responsive website", but don't really know what it means. Well, to get to
the hub of the nub of the point - responsive means that the website can be viewed and
interacted with on a whole host of different devices; and different screen sizes. It's
not all about the desktop PC now. The website needs to work on a little iPhone too.
Holiday Choices - mobile friendly
Google announced back in April that "mobile friendly" websites would be favoured in its search
results when a mobile device was used. As, always, Google has made a logical decision; so
since then we've been working to redesign Holiday Choices into a responsive (mobile friendly) website.
Oh yes, we're mobile friendly alright. Holiday-Choices.co.uk passes the test
