    I recommend putting the favicon.ico in your root directory. This is where the browsers initially look for the file.Also you can use two different code snippets so that browsers have a better chance at seeing the icon. See the code below. It may take a bit of time but your icon will get picked up like this. Any other questions just let me know.

    <link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
