I have noticed that google has started to show little images next to search results on mobile devices. The first photo I have displayed on my website is my logo. Currently this is the image that is being displayed. It doesn't look good. My logo isn't square so it crops it and looks bad.

I am assuming that there is some sort of meta tag, just like the meta tag I used to tell Facebook what photo to display.

What do I put in my HTML to tell google what photo I want displayed there?


Google mobile search results show your website’s favicon. You can add your favicon at /favicon.ico, or specify a custom URL as follows:

Add a tag to the header of your home page with the following syntax:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/path/to/favicon.ico">


  • Hey, I am not talking about the favicon. I know google has also started to show favicon icons in the web results but there is also a small square photo to the right of the result with a photo of the website. That is what I am trying to change. – Juan Pablo Jul 30 '19 at 0:37
