    Do not use MaxBlogPress Favicon, it doesn't work and it is a marketing spam scam. They will force your to register and read some ridiculous marketing scam crap. If you want a favicon here's a quick and dirty way to do it:

    Here’s how I did it:

    First, create your favicon art:

    Size should be either 16×16 or 32×32 pixels
    Save as a gif, png or jpeg (most browsers recognize all formats now. Don’t mess around with the ico format, it’ll make the task more complicated)

    Next, upload your art to your WordPress page:

    I used the easy, less techy way so I didn’t have to mess around with FTP. Simply create a new post, add an image which in this case is your favicon art. Then copy the images address that WordPress generates (example: http://mundovibe.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/mv_fav.gif). This is where your favicon is located, which takes you to the final step.

    Lastly, go the the “Editor” section under “Appearance” and click on the “Header (header.php)” on the far right column. The code will show in the main window. There you paste in your final code:

    * <link rel="icon" type="image/gif" href="http://example.com/image.gif“>
    * <link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="http://example.com/image.png“>

    This needs to be below the <header> tag, making sure to replace "http://example.com/image.gif” with the location of your favicon, which is the location generated by WordPress in the step above. Also, make sure the file’s sufix matches your type of favicon image (.gif, .jpg, .png).

    So, your final code would look something like this:

    <link rel=”icon” type=”image/gif” href=”http://mundovibe.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/mv_fav.gif“>

    Make sure to save this by click the “Update File” icon at the bottom of the page.

    NOTE: The bold code is the location of the Favicon which was generated by WordPress. If you didn’t copy this code or need it again you can always go to your “Media” section and click on “Library”. There you can get the image’s location by finding it visually and then clicking on the “Untitled” under the “Attached To” column.

    That should do it. Go ahead and view your page, press control F5 to refresh. Congratulations, you now have a favicon!

    To the coders and techy types: this may be a crude way of doing this but it works!
