Why is my favicon not showing up in Google search results?

Hey all

I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced their favicon not displaying on Google's search results? I uploaded my favicon on my Shopify Theme two weeks ago and still it doesn't display. It only displays on the url bar. My shop is also not password protected anymore, I opened up shop yesterday. 

 

Any assistance would be appreciated!

 

Take care!

@WKarsten Hope you are doing well.

 

Could you please check your favicon size? It is recommendable in size as per standard.

 

Also, could you please check its favicon format?

Hi @webwondersco 

 

Thanks for your prompt response. I've just checked again and under my theme settings it states that it'll be scaled down to 32 x 32 px. I've just re-uploaded the icon again using a 40 x 40 px (apparently this is the minimum size I can use on Canva). It's a PNG format

@WKarsten Could you please share your Store URL? so can check on the website 

 

JFYI, Google taking a few weeks to update the favicon in the Google listing.

Hi @webwondersco 

 

sure it's www.xmpon.co.za. Yeah, I've seen some posts where Google takes a while to update Analytics, Merchant etc.

 

Thanks again 🙂
