Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm creating an hostable start page in the spirit of Opera Web Dial, as example. For this service, I would like to show site logo (and NOT favicon, for which i already have a posisble implementation).

So, is there any web site which, given a domain (webapps.stackexchange.com, twitter.com, fr.wikipedia.org), is able to return me the URL of that website logo ? The ideal solution would be like google favicon service : querying it by simply using an URL like http://that.service.url/?domain=webapps.stackexchange.com

The problem here is that different sites place their logos in different ways and places. So how'd you know where to fetch the logo image from. –  Deepak Kamat Apr 10 '13 at 10:14
@DeepakKamat That's why suh a service would have an obvious use : grab the various logos using "as complicated as required" methods. –  Riduidel Apr 10 '13 at 15:00
The application logo - of which application, exactly? I've made several sites using Blogger that are not exactly "applications". Do you want the Blogger logo, or the one that I put into the site header. What do you want from the site that doesn't have an image file in the header or anywhere else in the site? Or the one that just has text in the header, but photos in the posts? –  MaryC.fromNZ Apr 10 '13 at 15:59
@MaryC.fromNZ Well ... i don't exactly know, but I know for sure it could be possible for a service provider to give me such information ... no ? I mean, you're here questionning the implementation of that diea, not its existence itself ... –  Riduidel Apr 11 '13 at 11:57
A logo is allowed, but not required. What's more, it won't always be in the same place, or labelled as a "logo". –  MaryC.fromNZ Apr 13 '13 at 21:53
