How to Add Favicon in Google Search Result

Similar to Google Authorship, Favicon in Google Search gives the search result a new easy to recognize look. It looks so boring to find the exact website we are looking for in that crowded search result, the only thing makes it look handy is Google Authorship but unfortunately only few websites got the authorship and rest are still not using it, so in this case Favicon in Google Search gives a much more different and easy to recognize look, which appears next to search result and makes your search experience worth.

Add Favicon in Google Search Result

To make your Google Search experience comfortable in Chrome, you need to install an extension called Faviconize Google, this extension not only makes your Google Search experience handy but also save your time in finding the exact search term – which comes after lot of research.

This little extension takes very small space in your computer’s memory in order to install, and doesn’t come with any settings or options button, as it works automatically right after it get install. You will find the Favicon, targeted by the website, next to the each entry on Google Search result, but it won’t be visible for few websites as they are not provided by the them.

All you need to do is visit the link mentioned above and hit the button “Add to Chrome” it will get install in next few seconds and start showing Favicon in Google Search.

I wish Google itself integrate this feature in its next update, as it helps in identifying the exact result in less time, but for now this extension is worth to use. I’ve tried it and with my experience would recommend each and every reader of this blog to use this extension in their Google Chrome browser.

  17. I guess this only works on Chrome browser?
