ZYGR INsites…the secret to successful websites
 
I looked at your website and noticed it has a favicon but your blog doesn’t.

What is a favicon?

The Wikipedia definition is “A favicon (short for favorites icon), also known as a website icon, shortcut icon, url icon, or bookmark icon is an icon associated with a particular website or webpage. A web designer can create such an icon and install it into a website (or webpage) by several means, and most graphical web browsers will then make use of it.

Browsers that provide favicon support typically display a page’s favicon in

the browser’s address bar ZYGR INsies favicon in address bar

and next to the page’s name in a list of bookmarks. ZYGR INsites favicon in bookmarks

Browsers that support a tabbed document interface typically show a page’s favicon next to the page’s title on the tab.ZYGR INsites favicon in tabbed browser

How to add a Favicon to your Blog

If you use WordPress (I imagine there are similar add-ons for other blogging tools), install the plugin called Shockingly Simple Favicon.  It’s easy especially if you already have a favicon for your website…you can use the same one for your blog.  If you don’t already have a favicon, there is freeware that makes it simple.  For the sites ZYGR INsites design, we use the Joomla extension Phoca Favicon and then place a in the blog directory.  If you don’t use Joomla, there tools such as favicon.ico Generator.
