Have you noticed the e from Explorer

0r the world with the fox

from Firefox, well those are “favicons”. Favorite Icons.

I got curious about how to install them on my blogs, specifically for one of my author’s, Sue Kopitz from http://wetdogmillionaire.com/. You have to go look at her blog and see her favicon. It is so cute!

I’m also very proud of of Sue! She’s doing the work and is now at 795,000 on the Alexa Rankings after 8 weeks! Amazing! Website owners would have to pay an average $10,000 to get those kind of rankings! Great job Sue!

So, if you’d like to know how to create your favicon, you need to sign up for this program or the blogify program.

The main thing is starting out with a picture or a graphic that is about one inch square so it will convert well enough to recognize the visual. I recommend using Adobe Photoshop to do the conversions, it is one of the easiest graphic programs I have ever used.
Once you have the graphic, you can go to www.tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon to change the graphic to a favicon. Then add the Plugin cbnet favicon to your blog and upload the favicon.ico file. It is so simple you won’t believe you haven’t done it before.
