Unbelievable! "Blogroll" Keyword 5th Position / Place on Google Search

Happy Blogging on Google's 5th position on "blogroll" keyword.

I could not believe what my statistics showed when I checked Google Webmasters, until I tried it on Google Search. I don't know when did this happened. Happy Blogging placed 5th on a single keyword and on the least expected keyword.

The Keyword: Blogroll

I don't regularly checked on my statistics. It just happened that I am cleaning my account, deleting those unnecessary websites I have included, I come across to this top queries page on Google Webmasters when I observed that the keyword was on the top of my list. I thought this was just an error on Google's system but when I checked it by searching the keyword itself, it placed 5th on the list. I am happy to see this for the first time. I really don't know I did to that page which I am hoping I know.

What is the correct image url for blogger favicon?

.ico, .gif, .jpg, .png - correct favicon image extensions

Now you have learned how to change your blogger favicon to your favorite icon or image. However after following the instructions, it still has that old blogger favicon and the code didn't work at all. You might have inserted a wrong image url.

Favicon / Image Extensions

There are many image extensions but you should consider only four that can be used on the web. These are the GIF, JPEG /JPG, PNG, and the icon extension ICO.

Correct Image URL

Before inserting a link, make sure that the link is alive. The link should be the direct address to the image itself and not to the page or post you have seen it. The following URL format should be followed:

http://{address here}/{image name}.gif
http://{address here}/{image name}.jpg
http://{address here}/{image name}.jpeg
http://{address here}/{image name}.png
http://{address here}/{image name}.ico

You should open the link first to know that it is alive and you have the correct direct link of the image. To determine that the link is alive, when you open the link, it should display the image alone and the favicon of the link is the image itself.

How to Change Favicon in Blogger

A step by step guide on how to change the default blogger favicon to your own favorite icon.

Adding a favicon in blogger is very easy, as easy as 1-2-3. You just to need the basic knowledge of changing your blogger template. All you need to do is to insert the following link code below in your template, between the head tag. I recommend you add it above the </head> tag.

The Link Code
<link href='{image url}' rel='shortcut icon'/>
<link href='{image url}' rel='shortcut icon' type='image/'/>
<link href='{image url}' rel='icon'/>
<link href='{image url}' rel='icon' type='image/'/>

The Image URL

The image url is the web address of the image you are going to use as your favicon. It may either be in the following format: jpg, gif, or png. Since it is a web address, you need to upload it on a photo hosting site, Photobucket. Replace the {image url} with your exact image url. Do you know the correct image URL?

The Head Tag

The head tag begins with this tag: <head> and ends with this tag: </head>. Go to Layout->Edit HTML.

Locate for end head tag (</head>) and paste your link code above it, then save it.

The result may take some time because of some delays brought by the browser you are using. I have tried once using firefox and it didn't changed the favicon immediately. But this will surely work perfectly. Do you know know where to upload your favicon?


I have intentionally renewed my blogroll to refresh the page. If you believe your site was included on my old list or you want your site to be included on my list, don't hesitate to EMAIL ME, commenting on my posts will not be accepted. The listing is FREE. Thank you!
