Google Favicons Story - The Other Google Favicon's!


A favicon, acronym of favorites icon, also known as a website icon, page icon or url icon. This small icon is associated with a particular website or web page and represent it.

The standard size of favicon is 16 x 16. To display a favicon you need to add a rel attribute in the head section of website and it usually place in the root directory. In Internet Explorer 7+, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Safari favicons are displayed in all available tabs

Ok Enough.

Its not long ago that Google change its main Favicon. The old Favicon is a Capital G in a box, but the new one is small purple g.

So I decide to collect all the FAVICONS of the services or websites that are owned by Google. I am not sure that I got all of them but these are the maximum I can find. And Yup I do found some interesting stuff too. :)

  • Web traffic is influenced by seasonality, current events, and a number of other factors. The level of search volume on your keywords, therefore, is constantly fluctuating.
  • Location and language targeting: If you access the Keyword Tool from within an ad group, the search traffic statistics will factor in your campaign's country and language targeting (if you target a region or city, only the country will be reflected). If you use the standalone or external Keyword Tools, your country and language selections will influence these statistics. Learn about the different variations of the Keyword Tool.
  • Match type: The Keyword Tool's statistics vary depending on your selection from the Match Type drop-down menu. If you select Broad or Phrase, the tool will factor in certain variations of your keywords that could potentially trigger your ads. Learn about keyword match types.
