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:

<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON"
HREF="/~your_directory/favicon.ico">

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.
