Favicons: What Are They?
‘Favicon’ is short for Favorites Icon, which is a small graphic 16×16 pixels in area that sits to the left of the website name in an internet browser tab, and to the left of the website address in the main internet search bar. It is called a favicon because it was first developed as an icon in Internet Explorer, and was first displayed in the favorites menu of bookmarked sites.
Not all sites have a favicon associated with them (a favicon is also known as a shortcut icon, a URL icon, a bookmark icon and more). If you go to a site and it does not have a favicon, usually a nondescript page icon is used, or the icon for the browser you are using is used (not all web browsers show the favicon in the search bar). You can create a favicon and include it during website development, or a web developer can be hired to create or source one and introduce it.
If you go to a popular site like YouTube or Wikipedia, you will see the favicon as a distinctive emblem that is instantly associable with the site. This is the key to creating a good favicon; you want something that is bold and clear despite the fact that it is very small. Though you are limited by the small dimensions, there are plenty of examples which prove that you can fit a fair amount into that pixel area.
You might assume that the favicon is not important, but in fact they can be very important. These little icons are important for brand recognition, as they are a useful place to include a brand or company logo. They don’t just show up on browser explorers, but on the mobile web too, so they give you plenty of exposure with both types of internet user. If you do not current have a favicon set up for your website, now is the time to do so.
