I would like to know what it takes to use emojis in Google's SERP.

Here's how an example result shows up: enter image description here

And here's the code behind that:

Now, as you can see, the title and description have emojis, but Google won't show them.

Any reason why?

Thanks!

Google lists their guidelines for this here and state

If your site has a favicon, it can be included in Google Search results for your site

Your code looks compliant with their guidelines. The only thing I can't see is the size of your icon which must be a multiple of 48px square, for example: 48x48px, 96x96px, 144x144px and so on.

However, they also state `

favicon isn't guaranteed in search results even if all guidelines are met.

  • Thanks for your reply! I'm referring to the emojis added to a title, not to the page favicon. Do the same rules apply? How can I set the size of an emoji inside <title>? Thanks!! – Rosamunda Jan 3 at 21:26
  • @Rosamunda, see modification "If your site has a favicon, it can be included in Google Search results for your site" You can also see an example in the Google doc. – Trebor Jan 3 at 22:19
