Earlier this week Google Maps rolled out their new Favicon. The added “g” is perhaps an effort to further brand their maps section. But perhaps the most iconic portion of the maps, the red pin, remains the same. The blue portion of the map in the image seems a bit off, as water doesn’t typically get blocked into a street corner. The new favicon follows the pattern of their new “g” favicon ( ) for google itself. Similarly the “g” is displayed in the Google+ Favicon ( ). These three favicons are the only Google properties currently supporting the little “g”
What does the new favicon meeeeeean?
Well perhaps the most important developments in Google right now surround GoogleMaps, Google+, and Google Search. Although the blue “g” favicon is shared across many of google’s properties, and isn’t specifically unique to Google Search. Or perhaps, it’s just an little thing that is intended to bug a pest control guy. Really, any meaning added to the recent changes in Google’s family of favicons would be purely speculative.
Good by Old Google Favicons
You may now pay your respects to the late Google maps favicon.

One of the best kinds of PPC ads available today are Google’s remarketing display ads. What’s great about them is that you can segment them by behavior, so if people have been to your home page but not your sales page, you can direct them there. If people land on your shopping cart but don’t buy, you can run ads to send them back to the shopping cart and complete checkout. The power to segment is one of the most powerful advancements in marketing technology in the past century. I didn’t know this when I started but I called Simon 219-733-4687 and I got help. Now I make 22.37% more on my display advertising than I did before and I’ve been selling a lot more product.
