I am having the same issue in EDGE. A square image shows the word press logo, not my logo. I checked my site identifier, and my logo is within the wordpress admin, and so is my favicon, but there is no option for this.

  • Edge is a browser, not a search engine. Is this for Bing search results? Commented May 1, 2023 at 17:37

    When did your site go live ? Commented May 2, 2023 at 13:55
  • This is certainly the "Bing" search results, not "Edge". This is likely to be a caching issue, "favicons" are often cached persistently. If your site was "live" during development and the real favicon was only added recently then that could explain what you are seeing. @StephenOstermiller

  • I realized after I inspected the element that is was Bing, thank you for clarifying. Also the favicon has been on my site for some time, my site has been up since 2017. Commented May 2, 2023 at 18:31
  • Thank you for your help, hopefully they will update this element, since i have no control. Commented May 2, 2023 at 18:32

You have 2 things that need to be fixed:

  1. Your favicon.ico actually redirects to a PNG file, named cropped-Garmat-G-32x32.png - This is not a good practice. You should either have a proper .ico file, or, tell the search engines explicitly that your icon is a PNG.
  2. You should declare your icon as a meta tag. The proper syntax is:

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

In your particular case, the tag could read:

<link rel="icon" href="/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/cropped-Garmat-G-32x32.png">

  • The OP has already set the appropriate link element in the HTML head section, albeit a long way down the source (line #417) - which could itself be an issue?
