Changing Your Blogger Favicon

According to Wikipedia,
A favicon also known as a shortcut iconWeb site iconURL icon, or bookmark icon, is a file containing one or more small icons, most commonly 16×16 pixels, associated with a particular Web site or Web page.
Still you have not got the point?? See the picture below;

The small icons which are marked with square are the favicon. A favicon is one of the supreme identity of a blog. It is a kind of logo that easily attracts people. So it is important. By default the favicon of a blog is the logo of blogger. In default templates it works fine. But what about custom templates? In this case the only solution is to add a custom favicon by yourself. So today we shall be discussing how to change the blogger favicon. Just follow below steps;

STEP-I(Rendering A Favicon);
Before you upload your favicon you need to have one. If you wanna use one of your image as favicon then just resize it into 16x16 pixels. But if you don't have any suitable image and also can't prepare a logo then try one of the below sites. These sites host favicon generator service;

If you have created your favicon from among these sites then it is OK  But if you still cannot prepare it then try this site. It host ready made favicons. You just need to download one of them. Now i think you have selected or got your favicon. If still you can't do it then contact me.

STEP-II(Uploading Your Favicon);
After you have got your desired favicon in your computer then it's time to upload it. There are many image hosting sites like blogger, picasa, flickr, etc. Just upload your favicon in one of the image hosting sites.
But before you upload you need to have your favicon bounded in the following criteria. I mean that you need to note these points before uploading your favicon;
  • Initially your favicon should compulsorily be of square shape and the best size of a favicon is 16x16 pixels. But if your favicon is of larger size then you need to resize it. For this you can use this tool.
  • Secondly your favicon should not be weighty. I mean it should not consume more memory. If it does then your blog will take longer time to load. So the best size is 10 kb for a favicon.
  • Finally, all browsers do not support favicons with .jpg, .gif or .png extension. To tweak it you will need to change it to .ico extension.
STEP-III(Changing Your Blogger Favicon);
Now it's turn to change your blog favicon. It is very easy. But be well informed that your favicon should meet the criteria mentioned in STEP-II. Now, follow some more steps;
  • Go to your blogger dashboard.
  • Click on the drop down menu and select layout.
  • Then on the top left corner of your layout you can see a view like below;
  • Click on edit link of the favicon.
  • Then click on choose file button and select your favicon which you got in STEP-I.
  • Then click on save button and you are done.
Note; After you change your favicon it takes some time to appear in your blog so in that case don't get frustrated and wait patiently and after some hours your favicon will appear in your favicon.
