What is Favicon and how you use it?


What is Favorites Icon?

You may have noticed that some sites and blogs have little icon that appear next to the web address at the top of the page. The little icon is an .ICO icon format and named FavIcon (short for „favorites icon”). This also appears when you save the link in your browser and gives you a graphical way of looking at it. Some of the browsers support *.GIF and *.PNG formats, but .ICO format is the most common and we recommend it.(Internet Explorer only support .ico format, other formats couldn’t displayed in Internet Explorer)

Setup Your Website Favorites Icon

Please upload your favicon to your website and add below code into your HTML. The code should be placed after your <head> tag:

<link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”/favicon.ico” />

Make Your Icon Better

For best results, you might use a square image to upload. And if you want a transparent icon, please use a GIF or PNG file with transparency background.

Why should I use a favicon?

You should use a favicon to personalize your website, to create a new brand, as signature copyright, to attract visitators or just for fun.

What means Favicon ?

Favicon is coming from favorite icon.

Why my FavIcon.ico icon couldn’t displayed

If you were use other icon editor to create your own FavIcon. Please make sure that your icon in the correct size and format. Because a FavIcon.ico for Internet Explorer must be square in size, .ico format and at least 16 x 16 pixels.

May I have multiple favorites icons with different web pages? and how to do that?

Yes you can. If you want different pages on your Web site to have different Favorites Icons. You’ll need to upload those favorites icons to your site and change the code „/favicon.ico”, make it point to whichever Favorites Icon you want to display for that page.

<link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”where your favicon.ico file located” />

Why do I need to make a FavIcon for my site?

Originally, Internet Explorer only used favicon.ico for bookmarks (MSIE 6.0 and older versions). But now, newer versions of Internet Explorer (7.0 and above) and most other browsers(Ex. Mozilla Firefox) also display the favicon in the address bar on every visit, so this is becoming more important than before.
