Are links to Favicon bad?

Be kind help a noob :slight_smile:

On a daily basis i have 300 or 400 attempts to my website via the path /favicon.ico , do i need to block these? are they bad?

Also when i check the other paths from the same IP’s the seem to go to the most random pages or small graphics that are part of the website template, which i presume are also bad backlinks?

any suggestions or comments welcome please.


The favicon is simply the thing that adds a little icon in tabs, this:

Requests to this are common because browsers try to find it. Just having that requested is not inherently bad.
