Want to make your website look a little bit more polished and professional? Make sure you’ve uploaded your brand’s favicon! Why? Because it will make your website recognizable when someone has a browser window full of tabs (this is me, all the time).

What’s a favicon?

It’s the little guy hanging out in your website’s internet tab.
Usually (but not always) it’s the organization’s logo, or some alternate version of it. Also known as a browser icon.

By default, all websites built on Squarespace will have an image of a 3D square as the favicon. As a web designer, it makes me so sad when I see websites with the default favicon (or none at all)! It's a great way to spread your brand's reach a little farther...and details matter!

Here's an example of the standard Squarespace favicon:
