Creating a favicon is not difficult and makes your website look more professional. 

A favicon (short for “favorite icon”) is an icon associated with a particular website or web page. It is generally intended to be used when you bookmark a web page. Web browsers use them in the URL bar, on tabs, and elsewhere to help identify a website visually. Favicons are also used as application icons on mobile devices.

A favicon is typically a graphic 16 x 16 pixels square, and is saved as favicon.ico in the root directory of your server. You can use a favicon with any WordPress site on a web server that allows access to the root directories.

In the wordpress dashboard, click on Appearance – Customize – Site Identity, and it allows you to upload your site icon. This is the same as a favicon.

 

Your favicon should be a minimum of 512 x512 pixels. You can design it in almost any graphic program, but I prefer to use Canva for most of my designing.  Although they have a free account, there are some great features if you sign up for a subscription. Canva will also allow you to design many other items that you will be using on your website, in e-mails, funnels, sales pages, etc.
