How To Add or Change Favicon on Blogger Blogspot

Favicon (Favorites Icon) is the small picture (usually 16px x 16px in size) you see beside some site's name in your browser's address bar. Having your own Favicon with a nice graphical reminder of your site is a good way to grab visitors attention. Blogger users can add a custom favicon on their blogs by going to the 'Layout' section and click on the 'Edit' link on the "Favicon" element.

"For many bloggers, having a custom favicon (the tiny image displayed in your browser’s window or tab) is the finishing touch that ties together the design and identity of a great looking blog. Today, we're pleased to announce that Blogger in Draft users can now add a customized favicon to their blog." - Blogger in Draft

How To Add a Favicon to Your Blogger Blog

Step 1. Log into your Blogger's Dashboard, then go to the "Layout" and click on the "Add a Gadget" link


Step 2. Click on the "Edit" link on the "Favicon" setting above the navbar element.


Step 3. A pop-up window will open where you can search for an image in your hard drive that will replace the default Favicon image. Click on the "Browse" button and search for your favicon (please note that it should have the .ico extension), then click on the "Save" button.


Step 4. Now you should see your own Favicon instead of the Blogger's default favicon.


Please keep in mind that it might take some time until your new Favicon will appear in your Browser's tab or window.

If you want to add animated favicons to your Blogger blogs, then use the following method instead.

Step 4. Save the Template and you're done adding the Favicon in your Blogger blog.

    1. The favicon you created might be a larger one..
      so create a 16X16 picture and save it with .ico extension or change it to icon using tools like formatfactory after saving it as jpg or png or any other picture. By this we can get a picture less than 100.
      Even I couldn't change my favicon..But now I got it..
      Try this method... have a good day..
