Add a favicon to your Google Sites website

A couple of days ago, I wrote about how you can further customize your Blogger/Blogspot website by adding your very own favicon.  Now here's how to add one as well in Google Sites.

Create your favicon using your favourite graphics imaging software, making sure it is 16px x 16 px.  Name it favicon.  Now, a favicon actually needs to have an extension of .ico.  Your graphics software might not be capable of making the conversion, in which case you might want to tune in and wait for my next post, or Google for a solution instead :-).

With your favicon.ico file on hand, visit Google Sites and (making sure you have admin rights), do the following:

Click on the "More actions" button at the right-hand side, followed by the "Manage Site" option

Click on "Attachments at the right-hand menu.

On the next screen, click on "Upload" and search for your favicon.ico file.  Remember, your file should be named favicon!

Click on "Upload" and when it's done, go back to your site.  Your favicon should appear beside the name of your website.
