New graphic on adverts
... just seen it for the first time today

Anybody seen the small icon shown on the same line as the URL on adwords ads? Where do they come from? I can't see any way of adding a graphic using the advert editor.

I saw a headline somewhere that they were testing a kind of 'favicon' for ads - maybe that was it. Didn't have time to read the article at the time.

yeah, just saw it next to my Ad. I have a yahoo store, so I have the little red YAHOO 'Y' next to my Ad. I wonder if I can change the favicon ?

ok, i'm thinking that you just need to save a 16x16 pixel graphic in your root directory of your website and call it favicon.ico

or use the following between your head tags:


I'm gonna give it a try. I'll let you know if it works

yup that did it. it was slightly different for a yahoo store, but it did work. So google just pulls the logo from the favicon on your website.
