Google favicon not showing

Google doesn’t see favicon

All my favicon settings are correct. I also look at the page source, the icon appears. However, the icon does not appear at Google doesn’t see it.

Icon appears in other URL options (http, www). But there is no https favicon. How can I solve this problem?

Can you clarify what you mean by “google doesn’t see it”? Do you mean Google Chrome doesn’t show it? In my case - it shows your icon on the tab and also on a bookmark if I bookmark the page.

Google serp result, not favicon
and search console


Best to read and check your HTML and Favicon against all of the requirements Google provide:

Those guidelines state:

The URL of the favicon. The URL can be a relative path ( /smile.ico ) or absolute path ( ). The URL must be in the same domain as the home page.

Your HTML shows:

<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="//"/>

They won’t show this icon because the URL of the icon isn’t on the same domain as the homepage.

Thank you.

I checked all of these. However, I have the same problem on my 2 sites with cloudflare installed. There is no problem on my non-Cloudflare sites where I do the same.

Google’s documentation is quite clear here, so I don’t think this is a Cloudflare issue. My recommendation would be to bring the image onto the same domain and then ask Google to re-crawl your site and see if that changes things.
