Blogger supplies every blog with the standard orange “B” blogger favicon. Having your own unique favicon is a great way to give your blogger template both a distinct and explicit brand. These small 16X16 pixel images will most definitely help your blog stand out from the rest of the blogspot blogs.

What is a Favicon?

A favicon is a small 16X16 image located at the top of your browser in the url bar.

How to Change your Favicon

    1. First go to Layout >Edit HTML in your Blogger Dashboard.
    2. Backup your existing template before making any changes!
    3. Place the code below directly below the </head> tag in your template.

  • Now save your template.
  • Once your template is saved view your blog and make sure to refresh the page and delete your cookies.


Creating your own Favicon

    1. Replace the image URL (2X) with your own 16 pixel by 16 pixel image hosted on the internet.

    I never knew this was possible with blogger. I thought this was only available to wordpress users. Thanks John!

  • Sterferson Luiz

    It did not work on mine.

  • John Smith

    <b>Sterferson Luiz</b>, I&#39;ve updated the post with some addition code. Also, make sure to refresh your blog page.

    Why do Flavicons appear in Firefox but not IE?

  • John Smith

    <b>Culture Queens</b>, this is a flaw on Internet Explorer&#39;s Part. They&#39;re always one step behind the other browsers….

    Hi there! I tried it and when i put your code as it is the image changes, but i when i change the URL to my image feed, it doesnt work. Why? Can anyone help me?


    this is just too cool!! thx!!!

    Thank you so much! This adds a wonderful dimension to my new blog! I really appreciate it!!

    —–IMPORTANT UPDATE—–<br /><b>Culture Queens</b>, I&#39;ve updated the code so that the favicon displays in Google Chrome.

  • Jobs JObs Jobs

    nice article.. thank you very much

  • Pepua

    Didn&#39;t work with me. i have used JPG, PNG and ICO images, I&#39;ve load mi favicon in google sites, in another blog as a draft… and nothing! I keep seeing the same favicon from blogger.

  • Angela [YourEverydayMama]

    Unfortunately, it didn&#39;t work for me either. I used the supplied site to convert and uploaded to a site that allows .ico files and still no luck, too bad!

  • John Smith

    <b>Angela</b>, you might want to try a JPG image instead of an ICO. That might do the trick!
