How to change the Blogger Favicon ?


What is favicon?

While using IE Firefox or Opera you will see an icon on the tab when u visit a page.This is called favicon.By default blogspot blogs have a favicon which looks ugly.See it here at the top of the post.So how to remove it?

Goto Blogger Template>Edit Html
There find the title tag which looks like

<title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>


and immediately after that add the following code after proper editing

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="URL of your icon file"/>

Remember to replace URL of your icon file file with your icon file's url

  12. Nope, I have tried this every which way and for some reason it doesn't work. Whenever I hit "Save template" it switches what I've just typed in and the "shortcut icon" part goes to the end after my url icon. What am I doing wrong?

  18. @abu naila: you can upload the picture you want to a free image host, such as photobucket or imageshack, then you'll get the image url. you don't need to convert the file type :)

    nice tips! it works well on my blog. thanks a lot^^
