Understanding the importance of the Favicon

Favicons help you make your website stand out! You should always use them to look more professional and help make the user experience better. They may be small but they have many advantages, let us go through some of these advantages.

Understanding the importance of the Favicon

If you look to the Tab of this page on the browser, next to the title, you should see the following icon:


This is called a Favicon. It may be small, but it can have a large effect on your branding and enhancing the user experience. If you do not use a favicon, users will see the generic browser symbol. Also, apart from tab icons, a favicon can be used on phones or tablet applications and desktop icons.

Let us look at some of the advantages of having favicons and how you can configure them with your Jumpseller Online Store.

  • Favicons make you stand out and give your brand a unique identity.

  • Users can immediately identify your website/page when there are a lot of tabs open on their browser.

  • Even when they are going through their bookmarked pages, the favicon will help them locate your page quicker.

  • Improved user experience, instead of reading names and titles, they can just see the favicon and click on the page.
