Icons are a simple yet effective way to make your website more readable. Icons help to communicate the main messages of your site by drawing a visitor’s eye to the most important content. They are like street signs guiding visitors to where they need to go.
There are lots of icon libraries out there, many of which allow you to use well-designed icons for free. I’ve listed a few of my favorites below.
Many of these sites allow you to download the icon in many different file versions. For best results and to maintain fast load times for your website it’s better to use the PNG format.

Icons are a simple yet effective way to make your website more readable. Just remember to choose an icon that clearly communicates and complements the text and follow the four main factors: size, color, placement, and consistency.
I hope this list has made your life a little easier by giving you plenty of new places to find icons.
