How to Change Your WordPress Blog’s Favicon

A lot of people ask how to change the icon, or the favicon rather, of a WordPress blog, so here are a few easy ways to do this.

I’ll be talking about how to change your Favicon on a self-hosted WordPress blog (this being the one with your own domain) and then I will move on to how you can change it on a WordPress hosted blog.

So, what exactly is that Favicon? It’s that icon beside your address, tiny detail, but it is attention to small detail that is essential to standing out on the internet.

Beside the website address, there is an icon, and that’s what I’m going to help you change it.

Method 1: A Plug-in (Self-hosted)

The plug-in is called WSA Favicon, and it is the most credible Favicon altering plug-in there is on the market. It is very easy to do, and quite simply, very self explanatory.

Method 2: Coding (Self-hosted)

Everyone’s scared to code. I know that. Even I am. But this is really easy. First of all, you’re going to have to get a 50×50 picture and either upload it on the internet, or have it ready. (you can just do a google search and use that address). So you’re going to need that address for the next step.

Next, you’re going to need to go to Appearances > Editor , and then you’re going to stick this code <link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”faviconpath” />. The “faviconpath” part is where you need to replace with the url of where your image is located. Easy.

Method 3: WordPress.com Users!

Very easy. Go to Settings > General . On the right hand side of the image, there is a part that says “Change Blog Icon/Picture”. Upload your picture there, and you’re ready to go!

Stage 4, Part 2: Produce Valuable Content

Lesson 2 of my content school, and it is to produce valuable content for your audience. Something that they would want to recommend or quite simply share.

If you want to have a loyal readership, this one is absolutely key. Essentially, I think that a good readership is far more powerful than producing timeless content. The reason is simply because with timeless content, you’re relying literally 100% on Google (well, other search engines count too, but I guess it works out in the end).

You need to produce content that is contemporary yet something that can be easily understood even within a couple of year’s time, that would essentially be the best way to make money on the internet – producing a solid readership, along with getting those searches in to bring new readers.

This is actually one of the principles that I always write my blogs with, reason being that if people find the content valuable, they will return and even subscribe – which is ultimately my aim. To get new readers, and keep them on the website in the future. It’s what my target is, and realistically, it should be what you guys are targeting as well.

Top news agencies and blogs all have editors in all sorts of departments simply to avoid a PR disaster – something that will cause the website/news agency to lose their reputation. That’s the very reason why putting out valuable but factual information is so important. Opinion doesn’t count in this case, because it’s quite simply you putting your point of view across.
