Hello zenedge, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You should also be able to right click on the Internet Explorer icon on the taskbar to be able to click on the website under "Frequent" to pin the site in the jump list.

If you didn't want the internet shortcut for the site pinned into the jump list of Internet Explorer, then you could use OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to create a separate internet shortcut for that site that will pin to the taskbar separately.

Internet Website Shortcut - Create

Hope this helps,

you can also create a shortcut key for the websites you want. by dragging the favicon to a folder then right clicking it and selecting properties then you can assign a shorcut key for it and it will open whenever you use the hotkeys.

Another wrinkle is use something like Standalone Stacks. You can make a whole folder full of url shortcuts of sites you use the most. I think Speed Dial is more fun though. :)

Changing the Icon for sites pinned to taskbar in IE9
In IE9 you can pin your favourite websites to the taskbar. If it is a large commercial site it may have its own Icon and that is displayed in the Taskbar.
