  • 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.

Check how the favicon is displayed in search results

If the robot downloaded the favicon, it will appear in search results within two weeks.
Note. If the robot can't access your favicon, it downloads an image (for example, from the apple-touch-icon tag), and uses it in place of favicons in search results and ad campaigns. If the robot can't access the site during indexing, it might download the hosting favicon from the site's parked page. As a result, search results might show something other than your favicon.
