Locating the URL, Title Tag, and Favicon page is easy once you know what to look for.
Here’s a preview of what this blog post looks like in various web browsers, with the URL, Title Tag, and Favicon marked in each one.
Different web browsers display this information differently. In some, the entire title tag is visible, while in others, it is only partially visible. In these examples, the title tag is the same as the title of the article (though they can be set to be different) followed by “Blue Fountain Media Blog”. So, the full title tag is “URL, Title Tag, and Favicon In Different Browsers | Blue Fountain Media Blog”.
The URL is the address of the website. It’s how your browser knows what page to take you to. In this example, the URL is “http://www.bluefountainmedia.com/blog/url-title-tag-favicon/”.
The favicon is a small image that helps indicate what page your on. This is especially useful when users have multiple websites open at the same time and is trying to move back and forth between them. It’s a powerful branding opportunity.
