Adding a favicon

You can change your website’s favicon through your dashboard.

1. Go to the website Settings → General settings.

2. Select Favicon and click Browse files to upload your image.

Note: For Google to show your favicon in mobile search results, the favicon must be a multiple of 48px square, for example, 48x48px, 96x96px, 144x144px, and so on. Google will rescale your image to 16x16px for use in search results, so make sure that it looks good at that resolution.

3. Then, click Save changes and update your website.

Troubleshoot a favicon

Keep in mind that it may take some time for the favicon to be updated. However, make sure that:

  • The uploaded file is not too large: the maximum file size is 1 MB.

  • You uploaded the file in the supported format: .ico, .svg, .png, .jpg.

  • The editor isn’t open in multiple browser tabs/devices simultaneously.

We also recommend to:

  • Update your website again.

  • Clear the browser's cache.

  • Check if the favicon's there, accessing the website via incognito mode/private browsing window.

  • Open the website using another device (e.g. your smartphone, tablet, friend's PC).

  • Open the website using different networks (try Wi-Fi instead of mobile data).
