Written by | Tech

It’s been a slow week for me, anyhow.. here’s a simple steps to setup and create your own favicon on your blogger.com blog.

via wiki:

A favicon (short for favorites icon), also known as a website icon, shortcut icon, url icon, or bookmark icon is a 16×16, 32×32 or 64×64 pixel square icon associated with a particular website or webpage. A web designer can create such an icon and install it into a website (or webpage) by several means, and most graphical web browsers will then make use of it.

Just add the line “URL‘ rel=’shortcut icon’/>” right above the “”. Login to your Blogger account, click the DASHBOARD then LAYOUT of the blog that you want to setup the Favicon, then EDIT HTML. Then use the FIND feature of your browser to locate the “” section.

Here are the things that you need to remember when setting up your favicon.

  • Make sure that the URL is a direct link for your image and an example of a direct link is “http://lh3.ggpht.com/_cbJecw4uhjk/S60agyj6EiI/AAAAAAAAC3A/bP0Mu3Yz5zM/s800/me.jpg“.
