Many sites have their fav icon displayed in G's search results. How do I get mine to show?

This is not standard behavior from Google - it's the result of a browser add-on, and there are several. How to get your favicon to be displayed might vary from add-on to add-on, but the standard methods of deploying a favicon should be all you need:
1. just put it in the root folder. 2. or, add the mark-up <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico"> to the <head> section of your source code.

Got it. Seems I needed to rename to favicon.ico: I had foo.ico. The devil is in the details. thanks for the insight
