Gorgeous Free Icon Sets

We haven’t done a pointer to quality icon sets in a long time, and Smashing Magazine has a great new collection, so here goes: free icons designated for both private or commercial use, such as payment and E-Commerce icons, flag icons, artistic, social media, and gorgeous planet icons, etc. Icon collections aren’t just for graphic designers anymore, check these out.  The fact is that even blog owners and very simple website owners should make a habit of including good-looking graphical elements such as icons on their websites, not only to heighten the user experience but also because search engines accord more weight to a page generally if it has properly tagged images of any kind on it.
