Simple Step to have your own Favicon running

3 comments Buzz Here
I have seen a few fellow blogger don't have favicon yet or just did not display but If you do not have displayed icon yet and want to make your identity and wanted to display your own icon on the browser address bar then here is your guideline on how to add your favicon for your blog. But first in case you're wondering what is FavIcon.

"A favicon (short for "favorites icon" and also known as a page icon), is an icon associated with a particular website or webpage that is displayed in the browser address bar next to a site's URL"
Now lets make it straight to the point and make it easier for you.
Important Note: Make sure you save your template for backup and be safe..you can do that by login to Dashboard of your blog and go to Edit Html subtab under the Template tab and see this: Before editing your template, you may want to save a copy of it . Download Full Template.

Follow this Simple Step:
  • Locate the image that you would like to use as your Favicon. Make sure that the dimensions are perfectly square. If you don't have image you can Check this gallery
  • After you generate your favicon.ico you are then asked to download it back to your computer. Download Your Favicon!".
  • upload the icon file to a freeserver like Googlepages. I used freewebs.com Copy down the URL of the icon at your choosen freeserver. Then login to Dashboard of your blog and go to Edit Html subtab under the Template tab. Copy the following code just below title......./title> tags:
  • Save Template, Refresh and view your blog and you can now see your new favicon in action.
Congratulation you can now see your favicon in action and created your identity of your blog.

Good post. Googlepages is a great place to host a favicon for a site. Fast servers.

A site I like to use to create my favicons is http://www.freefavicon.com/

They offer some free favicons as well.

Useful tips you've got here. Alot of bloggers do not see the benefits from having a personalized favicon. I think having your own favicon is not enough. It should be unique and exclusive to your site so I wouldn't suggest using available favicons. I suggest creating one for yourself.

Useful post. Good luck to your blogging!
