How to Create Alexa Rank Widget for your Blog

Google page rank and Alexa rank are couple of those factors which decide the popularity of blogs on Paper. Alexa seems to be undergoing lots of changes (Improvements) and recently Alexa got new design and because of this people who were using old Alexa widget are not working perfectly.

Alexa service offers a widget for Bloggers which they can embed on their blog. Personally, I have seen lots improvement in my Alexa ranking after putting Alexa widget on my blog. This actually helps Alexa to keep exact count of visitors on your blog. If you have not added Alexa widget, I would suggest you to add it on your blog.

Getting back to the topic, Alexa added a new way to add widget on your blog. Alexa added a new section for Site owners which can be used to verify the ownership and add and edit details about your site. This is very useful, if you have a good alexa ranking site, you can add detailed detail about your site and make your site Alexa profile look more professional.

You can grab ad codes for Alexa widget on your blog by going to this link. Click on Alexa site widgets, add your site link and grab the code to be embedded on your blog. You have different widget options and sizes for widget. Here is the code you can use to create Alexa widget for your blog, and make sure replace with your domain name.

WordPress Plugin to Add Alexa Widget

There is also a 3rd party free Alexa WordPress plugin which you can use to show your Alexa rank in sidebar. This free plugin can be downloaded from here and once you have installed and activate it, go to your WordPress widgets section and drag drop the Alexa Rank widget in your sidebar. All you need to configure here is the domain name. Replace default domain name with your existing domain name. Here is screenshot of the plugin settings ( Available as widget only)

    Hi Harsh… Greetings from Indonesia..

    it is Really Nice information about Alexa Rank..

    I have some question.. recently i change my subdomain blog to top level domain, and the alexa rank suddenly changes,,

    How long will the rank be back to the same rank before i changed to top level domain? or it is a consequences of changing to TLD…

    Thank you very much

    Thanks sir, I was looking for the same. My Google ranks are increasing but not Alexa. Now, I am gonna add this to my pages.
    Just a doubt here, If some one clicks on that widget and goes to alexa page rank for that site, then only increases the rank?

    This is all what I have been looking for. I started a website the same day with a friend and his got indexed while mine shows no data and the way I have done numerous submissions. I hope this works out for me.

    Agree with Mehedi Hasan. I am not able to find a way to add alexa widget. I think it’s not free anymore. They redirect it to plan and pricing page. They are providing 30 days trial. Any clue?

    It’s difficult to find alexa widget for website at new UI of alexa website. I think its not working anymore.

    Great info here on Alexa. You may have to update it though as just a few days ago you could do this for the widget. Now with the Alexa site changes I do not see the option anymore for the widget to show traffic rankings. Maybe I overlooked it, but doesn’t look like you can for free anymore.
