New Website

Google will soon roll out a new look for search results which includes favicons in SERPs.

The website name and its favicon will appear at the top of the results card, as shown in the image above.

“With this new design, a website’s branding can be front and center, helping you better understand where the information is coming from and what pages have what you’re looking for.”

Google says this new look is helpful to searchers as they can more easily scan the page of results and decide which source to get their information from.

Here are the Google favicons guidelines, in case you have missed them:

  • Both the favicon file and the home page must be crawlable by Google (that is, they cannot be blocked to Google).
  • Your favicon should be a visual representation of your website’s brand, in order to help users quickly identify your site when they scan through search results.
  • Your favicon should be a multiple of 48px square, for example: 48x48px, 96x96px, 144x144px and so on. SVG files, of course, do not have a specific size. Any valid favicon format is supported. Google will rescale your image to 16x16px for use in search results, so make sure that it looks good at that resolution. Note: do not provide a 16x16px favicon.
  • The favicon URL should be stable (don’t change the URL frequently).
  • Google will not show any favicon that it deems inappropriate, including pornography or hate symbols (for example, swastikas). If this type of imagery is discovered within a favicon, Google will replace it with a default icon.

  • Google Mobile First Indexing Has Arrived

    Google has announced that starting 1 July, all new websites would be analysed and ranked on Search on the basis of “mobile-first indexing”.

    “Mobile-first indexing” means Google would consider the mobile version of any new website for evaluating, indexing and ranking the site, instead of the desktop version which was used primarily.

    “We’re happy to announce that ‘mobile-first indexing’ will be enabled by default for all new, previously unknown to Google Search websites, starting 1 July, 2019,” John Mueller, Developer Advocate, Google, wrote in a blog-post on Tuesday.

    For older and existing websites, Google would determine their readiness for “mobile-first indexing” based on the parity of content including text, images, videos, links and structured data as well as other meta-data-like titles and descriptions.

    “We will notify them through Search Console once they’re seen as being ready. Since the default state for new websites will be ‘mobile-first indexing’, there’s no need to send a notification,” Mueller said.

    Google said it is pleased to see that “mobile-first indexing” has come a long way.

    “We’re happy to see how the web has evolved from being focused on desktop to becoming mobile-friendly, and now to being mostly crawlable and indexable with mobile user-agents,” Muller said.

    I have never written a review for anything before,but I feel that I must share my experience of this company! They are absolutely amazing! I have been in business for over 35 years and come across all sorts of individuals and companies trying to sell this that and the other ,being totally green regarding the internet technology and all that’s associated with it I have been taken for a ride time and time again and wasted thousands of pounds in the process! I have been promised results that have not happened and basically been lied to by companies big and small . I lost all faith in the industry that just seems to want as much money as they can grab ! ........A client told me to try bwar ,after a while I did . BEST thing I EVER did !! ..........they have single handed restored my faith that there is actually someone who tells the truth and helps to guide you through everything you need to know ! And there was allot I can tell you ! ....They have actually saved me thousands too . What a change. So a BIG Thankyou to all at this wonderful company for all that you have done and your continued support! .........DO NOT hesitate using this firm ,you won’t regret it !
