It's time to build an affiliate site for cheap headphones near me, because nice SEO consultants literally cannot stop screaming about the mobile search result update that now shows sites' favicons. Here are five of the most novel ideas / interesting things that we've seen happen so far:

Favicon as Google Author Photos Replacement

Google Author Photos, which were discontinued in 2014, no longer exist. Unless you use this nice ghetto hack to insert your face back into search results.

Using a Fake 'Ad' Favicon is Prohibited

You probably don't want to do this, but if you did, then FUCK YOU.

Favicons Used for Phishing

Hell yeah. It's time to run a nice phishing scam until you get hit with a DMCA or other similar complaint.

In Conclusion

It's time to get in on the favicon train, unless you don't want to, in which case, get the fuck out of here.
