How to change your favicon from default blogger logo to your own

Every one uses the default blogger logo as their favorite icon or Favicon for their blogs. They want to change it but blogger doesn’t provide any options for it. But we can do it just by adding some simple code to your blogger xml codes. So here is the simplest and best tutorial on How you can change your blog’s favicon from default blogger logo to your own

For this first you need to create/find an icon for your blog(read this post) and you have to host that image,which you like to put as your favicon on any free image hosting sites such as photobucket ,flickr etc.The image file with size of 16×16 or 32×32 and formats such as .png , .gif , .ico can be used as favicons.It’ll be good to use graphics of .ico format as a icon/emblem. Now copy the URL of the Image and sign-in to your blogger account.

Select the edit HTML tab and Just add the following lines before the </head> section ;

<link href-‘Your image URL‘ rel=’shortcut icon’ type=’image/ico/’>
You can replace the URL of your graphic file with your icon fille.If you are using any other image formats other ico, Replace the ‘ico‘ with the file format of your icon.[ eg ;- type=’image/png’/> , type=’image/gif/> ]

If you haven’t got a Favicon of your own, refer this post too.After you have made all the Changes, save it.
You’ll find your new logo ,dancing on your browsers address bar.

  12. hey you can host .ico files on .
    But that’s not the problem. The problem is whatever i try to do, it shows parse error just as Azlan said ! Any solution for that now ??
