I have been searching for the Alexa site gadget code to install to my site. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it. I have visited the shoutmeloud.com in the link http://www.shoutmeloud.com/how-to-create-alexa-widget-for-new-alexa.html and there was another link that said that I will get the gadget using this link -  http://www.alexa.com/siteowners. Unfortunately, Alexa had changed the link and now bloggers could not get Alexa gadget or  Alexa widget from that page.

 The Alexa widgets are free and easy to install. These gadgets can be embedded in the website by adding a code to the HTML space. The one I am sharing will automatically update your website's rank and the date of when it was ranked last. The model is displayed above.

So I am providing a simple code for your website. Edit the red code and replace shipmethis.com to your website address. You can copy the below HTML codes and paste to a widget.
