Search Customization

I was wondering how I could customize my website’s image, icon, name, and description in the search results.

Thank you.

You might be better off also adding Open Graph metadata to the mix; here is how it works:

Especially for the part in the top hand bar where is the domain in Google’s search results I think it’ll be worth it in the end.


Oh, this?

Not necessarily all of those, but especially og:site_name and the required parameters for Open Graph (the basic metadata). Since yours is a website and not a blog, og:type must be website.


Alright well, i put a favicon on my website a week ago or so and it doesnt display on the search, does it take that much time for google to update?

I didn’t index my website on Google for so long, so what I say isn’t exactly true, but Google usually takes up to a week (mostly some days) for the changes you make to your website to be available to Google as well.

Hi userbung,

Regarding changing the logo and the description, it is possible by pasting the following code and editing the description.

<meta name="description" content="Your description">
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="">

Place this into your html <head> just like what you did with the <title>.
Then upload the ICO icon file to the htdocs folder.

Everyone here’s on a different timezone so it might take longer to get a response just so you know.

Meanwhile adding OpenGraph gives you better-looking results on social media platforms like Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter for the preview. But those ones only sometimes work due to bot security applied here at InfinityFree.

Register your own Google Search Console account here:

You can then manage the crawling and fine-tune your code to achieve the expected result there.
