What I learned today: it’s too easy not to add a favicon to your website!

What is a favicon you ask?
It’s the cute 16 x 16 pixel icon that pops up next to the web address, tab or bookmark of a website.
I just added mine on my home page today, but when added to your site’s template, will populate the entire site.

more examples:

There are plenty of options for generating favicons. I used IconJ — tons of options for generating icons that feature special styles and even animation. I like it because it’s ultra low tech.

Browse to your image and upload. IconJ generates the .ico (icon) file you need and the code needed to embed in the head of your website. Naturally a seasoned web designer can do this all on his or her own, but for the growing DIY web designer, it’s a mistake-proof option.

Use a favicon to draw attention to your site, further customize a blog or ensure your site stands out in a list of bookmarks.


Do it.

That means you, favicon-less Sea World.
