In this article, I’ll show you how to add a favicon to your WordPress website. But, before that, let’s learn about the favicon and its uses.

What are Favicon and Its uses

A favicon is a small 16×16 pixels icon used to brand your website. It helps visitors find your page faster when there are multiple tabs open. Because of their small size, favicons work best as simple images or one to three lines of text. Favicons can be confused with logos. However, they are often the same. The favicon’s small size and resolution may mean that it needs to be reduced in size or included as a part of the company’s original logo.

You can find the favicons next to any information that can identify your website. These include bookmarks, tabs, toolbar apps, history results, and search bars.

It is an easy but crucial step in setting up your business website. This helps to establish legitimacy for your site, boosts your online brand, and builds trust with potential customers. They serve as an immediate visual marker to the site, which allows for quick and easy identification of web users.
