Ok.. I am sorry that u won't be able to understand, i will try my best in future to make all my points more clear and readable.

To get favicon icon link or image you need to register to the website "IMAGESHACK.US" for free. Upload the image you want to use as a favicon icon and after uploading picture it will provide you links in 4-5 different formats.. You need to copy direct link from there that will look like < a href="image url" rel="shortcut icon" > and then copy this link to location i have mentioned in the article... I hope now it is clear to you...

Yeah one more think even if you are not writing a positive comment you can always mention your name...!!! I always find ways to improve my writing and help others.

Keep visiting and keep commenting. Still if you not able to understand please let me know..!!
