Did you know that search engines like Google may display a favicon in search results like the example shown below?
Here’s how to make your site eligible for a favicon in search results:
- Create a favicon by following the instructions in this post.
- On your WordPress site, go to Appearance » Customize.
- Click on Site Identity.
- Click on the Select site icon button and upload your favicon.
- Click Publish and you’re done!
Please note that just because you’ve set a favicon, doesn’t mean that it will appear in Google search results. As Google state in their article here, “a favicon isn’t guaranteed in search results, even if all guidelines are met”.
