No that's not the right method to do so.
Go to http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/
Upload your s.gif there and convert it then use it.
Then add this line to the header of your html files :
<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" />

Actually, correct way is to save picture as .BMP in any graphical editor(our use service above) and place in in the root of your web-server. Then you need to save it as .png, and specify
<link rel="icon" href="favicon.png" />
