Having a strong site title is a critical ingredient for making your website great. For business professionals, web designers, or anyone managing a website, formulating a strategic site title can help a site stand out to visitors and provide better search engine results. Whether you are using a site title in the layout of your page, or if you are using this tutorial to add a logo image to your site, the site title will appear in browser tabs and provide an important function in your SEO structure.

You can choose from a wide variety of different fonts and control style options like capitalization, decoration, position, and more. Click through some of these parameters until you get a look you like.
Adding a Site Logo
You are not required to use only text in your header. You can easily select a logo image from your Media Library.
- Scroll down to the Site Logo section.
- Click Select Image.
- If you have not already uploaded your logo, click Upload Files.
- Once you have uploaded your image, select it from the Media Library.
- Crop the image to full dimensions.
- Alternatively, you can click Skip Cropping.
- Adjust Logo Size to your desired specifications by moving the slider up or down.
You will notice the logo image has replaced the site title.
How to Use a Site Icon
The site icon, also known as a favicon, will be the official “app icon” for your site. This icon will appear in the browser window, on bookmarks (depending on browser configuration), and only needs to be sized at least 512 pixels wide and tall. If your image is large than 512 pixels, don’t worry, it will be resized to fit.
Now you know how to change your site title and logo. From here, you can proceed to learning how to customize colors in the WordPress customizer with new features from the BoldGrid site builder.
