Hi Kate,

The favicon is simply an icon (small logo) that is found within the browser section when you visit a website. No, it doesn't affect your site's SEO.

Favicon is also known as a shortcut icon, website icon, tab icon, URL icon, or bookmark icon, is a file containing one or more small icons,[1] related to a distinct website or internet web page. An online clothier can create such an icon and upload it to a website (or internet web page) through a number of the method, and graphical internet browsers will then make use of it.
