Hi guys im new to seo so i faced a bit of confusion hope to be resolve :)

So, I can't see my site icon even though it is indexed almost 3 days. is this normal ? or i still have to wait
another confusion that i wish someone can explain to me is,
my deleted page get indexed and it is showing on google search, if i let it sit there will it hurt my main page ?
 
It's normal for the favicon to take some time to appear in the search results after being indexed. This process can take a few days to a couple of weeks. In the meantime, try clearing your site and browser cache to ensure it's not a local issue. If you're using an SEO plugin like Rank Math or Yoast, double-check the settings to make sure the favicon is correctly configured.

If you've deleted a page and it's now returning a 404 error, it's not ideal to leave it like that. Having 404 pages can negatively impact your SEO. The best practice is to set up a 301 redirect from the deleted page to a relevant, similar page on your site. This way, any link equity the deleted page had will be passed to the new page, and users won't encounter a dead end.

Thank you so much for the help mate !

for deleted page should i just redirected it to my main front page or i just do a removal on gsc? i mean which is the best?
 
Yes, its normal. Might take a while for it to appear in search results even after its indexed.
 
It's normal for a site icon to take a few days or longer to appear. As for the deleted page, it’s best to use 301 redirects or request removal in Google Search Console to prevent any potential impact on your main page
 
You don't need to worry as much, it will appear. Make sure you have done everything correct in html source code and clear your browser cache
 
It is normal for site icons to take a few days to appear in Google search results, so you may need to wait a bit longer. For the deleted page, use Google Search Console to remove the URL and set up a 301 redirect or ensure it returns a 404/410 status code.
 
Favicon not showing up on search results is normal, it might not show up because the browser might caching the older version of your site, try clearing it. Or it can be because of Favicon specs (size, dimension, etc.) do not meet the Google's requirements. As for the deleted page it is recommended to use 301 redirects send the user directly from deleted page to a relevant working, because the deleted page would return error 404, which is bad for user experience.

Hope this helps!
 
Make sure your icon is properly linked with HTML and uploaded to the root directory. Check the Icon Report in GSC for any problems.

If your site's domain.com/favicon.ico is available for Google to crawl, it'll be automatically updated. It takes some time for Google to update the icon due to the caching methods it uses.
