- 1 answer

Here is a screenshot of Bing search engine:

Favicon in Bing search engine

Most of the websites have their favicon on the left side of their website title link. (Like the red circle) But my website in Bing search engine shows a gray earth icon, not my website's favicon. I'm sure that my website has favicon.ico (it is put in root directory), and I am also sure that I have add this code in <head>...</head> tag:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">

But still look like this:

No website icon

So is there anyone knows that how to show my website's favicon in Bing search engine?

Answer

Use this if:

Normal favicon:

<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

PNG/GIF favicon:

<link rel="icon" type="image/gif" href="favicon.gif" />
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="favicon.png" />

in the <head> Tag.

If that doesnt work please try clearing your cache on Bing. Also sometimes it wont load if the favicon is not uploaded to a webserver so think about that.
