        6.  Paste this code just above it:

<link href="your-favicon-links-goes-here" rel="icon" type="image/gif"/>

Note: replace your-favicon-links-goes-here with your favicon's link location

      You can choose from here some cool favicons for your site/blog: (just download the favicon you like - upload it on tinypic or on a blogger's post, then copy the link address/direct link)

The Second Way (The Easy Way)

1. Go to Blogger Dashboard >Layout >Add a Gadget

2. Click on the "Edit" link on the "Favicon" setting above the navbar element.
3. A popup window will open where you can search for an image in your hard drive to replace the default favicon image. Click on "Browse" button and search for your favicon (it should have the .ico extension) - then click on "Save".
4. Now you should see your own favicon instead of blogger's default favicon.

It might take some time until your new favicon will appear in your Browser's tab or window.
