A favicon is an icon associated with a particular website, typically displayed in the address bar of a browser accessing the site or next to the site name in a user's list of bookmarks. See example below:
Here are a few reasons why you should have a favicon on your website:
1. It looks professional and adds credibility
2. It reinforces your branding
3. It improves the user experience as it's easy to recognise your site in tabbed browsers and when the page is bookmarked
How to create a favicon:
A favicon is tiny, only 16x16 pixels. Have a look at some of the favicons that are used for different brands. They are simple but reflect the brand they represent:
You can either use an element of your brand that can be reduced to a small enough size (16x16 pixels) or get your designer to design a favicon for you.
Most content management systems allow you to upload a favicon yourself. Or ask your web designer to do it.
Have a great rest of your week!
