whenever I see a website that has a little logo on the browser, I wonder how they do it.  

For example when you go to ebay, it show the ebay logo in the address bar.

How can I do that?  I use WordPress for my site

    This is called a favicon. Sort of a combination of a favorite and icon.

    What you need to do is take the logo you want and use an online favicon generator. Here is one I often use.

    Once you download the favicon, it should be titled favicon.ico

    Put this in the root directory of your site and you're all set!

    The icon  (.ico) or image (.png, .gif ) file is used for favicon icon. To use favicon icon just use this code inside your head tag like below:

    <link href="images/favicon.png" rel="shortcut icon"/> <!-- Use your image path or icon path-->

    Open in new window
