If you haven’t created a Favicon for your blog, this post will show you how easy it is!
If you’ve ever been on some of the big name sites and noticed a cool little icon in the address bar, you might have wondered what they’re called.
In todays post, I want to introduce you to Favicons.
Previously I’ve spoken about the importance of creating a Gravatar. Then of all things I discover there is such a thing as a Blavatar! I’m not going to go into what a Blavatar is because its only applicable to wordpress.com sites and I know that as an entrepreneur, you already have a wordpress.org self hosted site :)
So as a WP.org user, basically a Blavatar is a ‘Favorite Icon’ or a Favicon.
When I first started researching a ‘go around’ for eliminating the need to pay a web designer to create one, I hit a few of road blocks that I was determined to solve.
Firstly creating one was easy, just google “create favicon” and loads of sites will show up. The problem was that once I created one, every site I went to said something like “After generating a favicon with this tool download and save to the root directory of your site. Then include the following code in the head of your HTML document”. Huh? Did I mention I’m not a techie person!
So after sifting through outdated and manual upload plugin options galore, I found the perfect solution to have you up and running in minutes.
Ok so it might have taken you 10 minutes but in any case, by now you should have your own Favicon.
If I missed anything or you have any other great plugin suggestions, please share them in the comments section below.
