Favicon of my site working correctly within my site. but externally, when I see my site in google search result, Favicon has not been registered.

when I check link tag of favicon in head section of html, url path of href includes static content version number.

link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="https://example.com/static/versionxxxxxxx/frontend.../favicon.ico"

this version number change each time when static content deploy executed.

I am guessing the constant change of href prevent registering favicon in google.

I know Magento can show off the version number by the configuration. But whole static contents version will turn off, I do not like to turn off this feature.

Does someone have good advice to fix this issue?

You need to run the below query in your magento database.

insert into core_config_data (config_id, scope, scope_id, path, value) values (null, 'default', 0, 'dev/static/sign', 0);

Then run the below commands

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f
php bin/magento cache:flush
php bin/magento cache:clean

Your version number will be removed from the static urls.

  • Thank you for your answer. but I know above solution. I would like to keep alive the versioning feature. Is there a way to remove version number only for favicon href?
