Update your favicon for the new Google Search design

Arn Houthooft, 2017/05/05

A new design update to the Google results will be rolling out over the next few days. With this new design, a website's branding will become more prominent. The name of the website and its favicon will appear at the top of the results card.

The goal of this new update, according to Google, is "to help you better understand where the information is coming from and what pages have what you're looking for."
