I stumbled upon this single service website called ShowOffRankings.com (Update, October 2013: Looks like the site has been discontinued). This site offers a simple widget that displays your blog ranks – ie. The Google PR, Alexa, Compete and Technorati ranks – all of them neatly arranged either vertically, horizondally or as a square while consuming very little of the screen real estate.
This is one of the easiest widgets to use. All that you need to do is to visit their website, enter your blog URL there, select your blog PR, select the ranks that you want to display, select the style and click generate. Now you can paste the generated code snippets into your header area (the style sheet) as well wherever (e.g. Sidebar) you want to display the actual widget.
So simple, isn’t it?
I wish they had another similar widget that shows off the counts such as the feed count, comment count and twitter followers count. Perhaps one of you can enhance the service to incorporate the same
Instead of pasting two code snippets into header.php and sidebar.php respectively, you could open their stylesheet file in the browser and paste the contents into your theme’s style.css as well. That way, you can change the style of the widget the way you want it.
Give it a try!
