Hi Donald,
Are you just looking for image ideas? How about a brain, you know, being smart and all.

Donald... to make a favicon, just upload the image into your file manager. Then, on your right-hand side, under Properties, scroll down until you see "Favorite Icon". Click on that, then obtain your image. You will need to add a favicon to each page. Be sure to update your site afterwards.

Hey Donald,

My idea would be a graduation hat. I made an example that you can check out here http://testingsite2.synthasite.com/.

No it won't go as far as increasing your google ranking, if only! But I think it's a pretty mandetory thing to have. Personally when I visit a site without a favicon I straight away are weary of the page and don't like it! It's a nice little feature that makes your site look professional. Here's a blog I found if you what to read more on it," A little favicon goes a long long way".
