Im calling them 'page icons', becuase I dont know what else to call them. Thus, a picture is in order.
I am refuring to the things in the blue box.

How do I add these to my site? Ive searched, but its difficult considering I dont know what they are called. What spicific size are they, and how do I add them to my web page?

Thank you very much for you time.

They're called "Favicons" (short for "fovorites icons").

Here's a link that'll give you an overview:

favicons overview

And here are a few links to tutorials on creating and uploading favicons:

tutorial 1
tutorial 2
tutorial 3

If you want to check out more sites, simply key in "favicon tutorial" or "favicon how to" in your browser's search bar. Be prepared to wade through a lot of stuff!

Good luck!
