Favicon not appearing on Google Search results

I'm assuming the screenshot isn't related to your website (judging by the wordpress link)?

I'm 99.99% sure that's not something we can access in Squarespace. In saying that, you should only need to upload your icon to the browser icon in the Settings menu of your site.

My favicon is a 192x192 pixel png file and shows in the SERP:

If you've added your site to Google Search Console, you may need to login there and request Google to re-index your site - it may not have picked up the change yet.

I don't recall to be honest as I wasn't actively looking for it. Can you see in GSC if the page has been reindexed yet? From memory there should be a date of last crawl (or similar).

If not yet I would give it a bit more time, but if it has since been crawled and still not appearing you could try uploading a larger size just in case?

The problem is this, the logo is there but it's white and I do not know how to change this, I have tried googeling it but there seems to be no solution. 
I have tried changing Favicon, but that only changes the little icon on the slide that opens, all the way up top. This logo is correct, which is weird. 
Anyone have any suggestions?

The persistent absence of a Squarespace icon on Google for three years (since 2020) is a glaring oversight that encapsulates why Squarespace trails Shopify in customer acquisition. Such neglect is not just a minor inconvenience; it's a vivid indicator of a company's disregard for customer experience and an omen for its future prospects.

I'd just typed out all of the below.

I then went to take a screen shot of my Favicon showing up in SERPS, and it's dissappeared again. WTF?

 

 

Guys, I promise I'm not being paid to say this.

If you look back over all the Faviocn related posts you'll see frustrated contributions from me.

About three weeks ago I signed up to https://app.seospace.co.uk, I think maybe even just the free trail at this point.

Anyway, after scanning my homepage and making the straightforward amendments, my Favicon was appearing in SERPS after the next Google Search Console refresh.

I'm pretty sure you can get a 7 day free trail, you have nothing to lose
