<link rel="icon" href="static_favicon.ico"/>
<link rel="icon" href="animated_favicon.gif"/>
<link rel="icon" href="static_favicon.png"/>

After Adding one of the above favicon image type, your code should be something like this:
<link href='http://www.siddharthr.in/favicon%20%281%29.ico' rel='icon'/>
<link href='http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_1fRuBdlSpLw/TI5vyuV-0fI/AAAAAAAAAoM/gR79-3QT4n8/s1600/favicon.png' rel='icon'/>

For those of you wanting desperately to have your favicon to work in Internet Explorer you have to use a .ico file, since it appears that Internet Explorer simply does not want to support the .png or other formats for the favicon.

You can’t upload a .ico file to Blogger.com, that means you will need to host your favicon somewhere other that on Blogger.com. An option could be Google Page Creator.
