On my google sites webpage, the favicon doesn't show up on search results (just shows the generic globe image) but it DOES show up on the tabs. I've made sure the image is a multiple of 48. I've submitted a recrawl request. I've cleared my cache, it's still not on there. The image file is a png, which is supported. I know the favicon is recognized and is in the proper format because again, it shows up in my tabs. But when I type my website in Google search, it displays a generic globe image which looks unprofessional.
The google sites community wasn't much help. I've tried to find the answer on google but couldn't find any help there either. Anything involving code doesn't apply to my situation because google sites is pretty much drag and drop with limited options. Other people have had this issue on other forums but from everything I've seen, it remains unresolved.
