How to Install Alexa Widget on a WordPress Website

To stay on top of the industry, it is nowadays important for the WordPress websites to have some extra juice of the Alexa Rank. Owning a good website always don’t mean earning much from it. The advertisers are behind the Alexa ranks, and they are still not changed their mind. So, it has become a necessity to show off your efforts on the Alexa on a noticeable area on your website. Alexa Widget was a great option to fulfill this, and you have to do nothing other than installing a plugin from the WordPress repository.

But recently, to be exact in the middle of this October, Alexa called back their official WordPress widget. Bad news to the Alexa lovers but there is some hope with the new addition. Instead, the company provided an alternative in form some code lines which could be inserted in any part of the website. The code is as follows.

<a href="http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/yoursite.com"><script type="text/javascript" src="http://xslt.alexa.com/site_stats/js/t/a?url=yoursite.com"></script></a>

This will display a simple Alexa rank widget without any additional information. If you need extra details such as the incoming links count, you could use the following code.

<a href="http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/yoursite.com"><script type="text/javascript" src="http://xslt.alexa.com/site_stats/js/s/a?url=yoursite.com"></script></a>

The widget will not support HTTPS, that sounds like a bad news for the security lovers. In our thought, Alexa made it even simpler to add the Alexa stats to the websites. Instead of a widget form that could be just inserted into a widget area, the new code form allows to put it anywhere on the WordPress website. Nevertheless to say that the speed of the website will be slightly improved because an extra plugin gets avoided.

The Alexa has been considered as the most trusted metrics for the advertisers to estimate the quality of a website. If you still don’t know more details regarding the metrics, have a look at its review.
