Join the favicon matrix!

Last updated: September 01, 2007 (cleaned up the messy code of Ilker-Blogspot that was putting my sidebar below my post…). This favicon Matrix is now fully WordPress proved thanks to Linky Love : persistent as always ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Join the favicon matrix!

If you liked the benefits of viral tags and you love the beauty of favicons, then you should also try this out!

Instead of tags, your blog or site’s favicon are inserted in the matrix. This ends up to be a beautiful artwork for your blog! I got this from Yummy Silicon Chips.

You don’t have a favicon?

Linky Love can make one for you! How?

  • write a post on your blog where you mention that Linky Love makes you a favicon
  • Link to with the following 2 anchor texts:
    • Add your link
    • Linky Love

How to join the favicon matrix?

Be sure to fill in the three important parts of your viral icon, which is:

  • the source of your favicon or ask Linky Love to make one for you,
  • the hyperlink to your blog, and
  • the alt text which would be used to help the crawlers identify and associate your alt text with your icon.

โ€”โ€”โ€”Copy and paste the VIRAL-ICONS and instructions below this lineโ€”โ€”โ€”


  1. Copy and paste the matrix of โ€œViral Iconsโ€ below courtesy of Ilker Yoldas from The Thinking Blog. (to support Ilkerโ€™s quest of launching his own Internet Startup with a student budget, please consider subscribing to the Full RSS Feed and enjoy interesting posts in the meantime. "Knowledge grows when shared!").
  2. Upload your non-animated favicon (GIF image of size 16×16 pixels) to ImageShack, a similar free image hosting server or to your own server provided by your hosting service if you have one.
  3. Substitute the Host Icon and one of the โ€œViral Iconsโ€ in the matrix with your ALT text of choice and your blogโ€™s URL. Maximum of 3 specific keywords for the ALT text are best for it to be effective.
  4. When you get a ping back from someone that has your icon in one of their โ€œViral Iconsโ€, practice good karma by copying his/her Host Iconโ€™s code (automatically the associated ALT tag will also be copied) and paste it over one of your โ€œViral Iconsโ€ below.
  5. Invite your readers to do the same and soon this can grow virally.

Rules: No Porn Sites, Only 1 icon per person (i.e. don’t hog the ViralIcons!),
and please don’t tamper with other people’s ALT tags, URLs or favicons.

Important: Once I get a ping back from you (I promise to do the best I can), I will add your favicon and the associated code you designate as โ€œHost Iconโ€ here, replacing one of the โ€œViral Iconsโ€ from the matrix above.

Feel free to drop a comment here with your blog URL, ALT tags and favicon URL (we don’t mind if it is the same all over the blogosphere).

The sooner you participate, the more linky love you will receive!

  1. thanks for the add. i added you up also!

  2. Thanks Tina! Let me know when to add another one that comes from people using your matrix!

    Jay, favicon is made, see my post tomorrow or read my comment in your blog ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. THANKS!
    ALT of “paid to blog” please….
    I can’t get the favicon to work with blogger, but will persevere… It’s says an end tag of “” is missing – sounds like nonsense to me…!

  4. No nonsense, u hv 2 do what they say ๐Ÿ™‚ exactly! Persevere as some other favicons here are also on blogspot.

    U probably need to put a slash before the ending tag like so:

    Try n see? U should be able to see ur favicon “on the spot”.

    Now ur request “paid to blog”… Caaaaan ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Hi jay, added your favicon to my matrix just now ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. dogHola Lilyruth,

    Bienvenido a LinkyLove ๐Ÿ™‚

    So far I didn’t jump on the Alexa train, as i find the Favicon matrix much more beautiful and more challenging than just any other copy-paste list.

    My 2 cents (3 actually)
    1. In your Lilyruth blogspot, change the banner size of Bidvertiser (468 in stead of 728), as it is now messing up your blog.
    2. dogcents uses a very beautiful yet very difficult blogger template, maybe you would start of with another one that works perfectly without you having to work your way through the HTML code
    3. Read my “First 10 steps” Category. Main thing is to set the bar low in the beginning and gradually set it higher.

    If you write about your blog as stated in the Blog of the day rules, I can add it as well. Just be honest: people love to help new blogs out as long as they don’t pretend to be as good as CNN ๐Ÿ™‚

    dogYou are in need of a favicon as well, if so, please ask again ๐Ÿ™‚ and I will make an .ico of this doggy for you. I didn’t see any favicons on your blogs though (the favicon matrix should be inside a post of your blog you join the favicon matrix with…sounds more complicated than it is ๐Ÿ™‚ )

  20. Today I made the Favicon Matrix ready to be used withour errors for WordPress users. Looking forward to hear feedback if it’s also ready for the other blogplatforms?

    I removed Personal Finance Blog as it didn’t seem to be pointing anywhere visible to the favicon matrix, hope can fix this?

  21. @dott-com: thanks for mentioning, any favicons you have that I don’t have?

    @forumer: also thanks for mentioning, any favicons you have that I don’t have?


    dog: This ico file is downloadable at :

  22. thanks for all he tips I will go and change what needs to be done. I know Im just a big dummie when it comes to blogging I guess I never will learn how? LIsten Please do add that cute doggie picture to your matrix and I hope you will add both of my sites not just one. I will leave your blog on my viral Alexas train anyway and also I will add your button to my blog so I hope this way you will add my blogs onto your links or blogrolls here on your site and again thanks so much for the advice.Please add the doggie picture to both of my blogs if you add it to your matrix and thanks again. lilyruth

  23. Hi Liliruth,

    We all go to the same learning curve, so its just a matter of catching up, whatever you need to know, just ask, me or somebody else here might just have the answer!

    The favicon matrix will be updated soonest I got my hands on a working computer again, so far Dell only ships after the 16th of July, which is quite late. So please bare with me some delay, meanwhile your request is noted on my handheld ๐Ÿ™‚

    Please send your friends over to have a look, a link or a favicon ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. I still do not see the little doggie with my link in your matrix? have you forotten aout me? and how about the adding of my blog to yur blog roll because I did add the linky love button on y blog I hope you will do me th favor and take car of this. thanks.
