How to add the favicon to your website?
I am used to have several tabs open in my browser, probably my maximum of tabs and windows open at the same time has been around 3 windows with 22 tabs each. If you are one of those users you really want programmer to use the fav icon to help you visually to find their site back.
Here you can find some useful info about the fav icon : wikipedia favicon
Steps to add one of those to your site:
2. Upload your favicon.ico into the root directory of your website.
3.Add this this code somewhere between the <head></head> tags on your pages:
<LINK REL=”shortcut icon” HREF=”http://www.yourdomain.com/name_of_icon.ico”>
If your site is a ‘secure’ site, you need to provide the path using https:
<LINK REL=”shortcut icon” HREF=”https://www.yourdomain.com/name_of_icon.ico”>
