Hello,

 

I`ve tried several different methods including coping and pasting the code to the theme liquid and uploaded the favicon ICO file using Shopify > Content> Files but nothing seems to work,

Please someone help and thank you in advance.

the code I included:

<title>techoboom.com</title>
<link rel="icon" href="img/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="icon" type="image/gif" href="favicon.gif" />
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="favicon.png" />

Hey Technoboom,

 

If you've recently made these changes, you may need to wait a while for Bing to notice them.

This is the same with Google too -- it can sometimes take up to a few weeks for the search engine to update after making changes to your favicon. 

 

Also, I would recommend changing the 'href' values to full links. 

 

For example, you have: 

 

<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

 

Try changing that to something like this (but use the .ico file instead of .png): 

 

<link rel="icon" href="https://www.techoboom.com/cdn/shop/files/favicon_png_96x96.png" type="image/x-icon" />

 

You can get the full URL of the image/icon file by uploading to [Content > Files] section of the Shopify admin, then clicking the the 'link' icon on the far right-hand side, after it's uploaded.
