Google has updated its mobile search layout to display your favicon and website title at the top of search results in mobile browsers and the Google App.

This update highlights your website’s branding and immediately helps differentiate you from competitors. People browsing for your website will receive at a glance more information about your business get a feel for your brand's personality before even clicking into your website. 

Google's decision to add this small version of your logo to search results is an important change and one you should definitely take advantage of by making sure you have a great-looking logo and favicon uploaded to your website.

If you haven’t uploaded a favicon to your website yet, now is the perfect time to do it! 

How to add a favicon to your PhotoBiz website

A favicon is a 16x16 pixel version of your logo and ends with the extension “.ico”.

You can create your own favicon using Photoshop or Illustrator… or use an online conversion tool like favicon.cc. All you have to do is upload a square version of your logo and the tool will shrink your icon down to the proper size so you can use it on your website. 

Make any adjustments needed using the pencil tool and download your favicon. Then, head over to your PhotoBiz control panel to upload it under the SETTINGS tab.
