Find Alexa Rank Of Any Website Using PHP


To Find Alexa Rank It Takes Only Two Steps:-

  1. Make a PHP file and define markup and scripting
  2. Make a CSS file and define styling


Step 1.Make a PHP file and define markup and scripting

We make a PHP file and save it with a name rank.php

<?php
function alexaRank($url) 
{
 $alexaData = simplexml_load_file("http://data.alexa.com/data?cli=10&url=".$url);
 $alexa['globalRank'] =  isset($alexaData->SD->POPULARITY) ? $alexaData->SD->POPULARITY->attributes()->TEXT : 0 ;
 $alexa['CountryRank'] =  isset($alexaData->SD->COUNTRY) ? $alexaData->SD->COUNTRY->attributes() : 0 ;
 return json_decode(json_encode($alexa), TRUE);
}

if(isset($_GET['siteinfo'])) 
{
 $url = $_GET['siteinfo'];
 $alexa = alexaRank($url);
 $globalRank ="Global Alexa Rank of ".$_GET['siteinfo']." is : ".$alexa['globalRank'][0];
 $countryRank ="Alexa Rank In ".$alexa['CountryRank']['@attributes']['NAME']." is : ".$alexa['CountryRank']['@attributes']['RANK'];
}
?>

<html>
<head>
 <link href="rank.css"  rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
</head>
<body>
<div id="wrapper">

 <form method="get" id="rank_form">
  <p>Enter Website To Get Alexa Rank</p>
  <input type="text" name="siteinfo" placeholder="E.g. www.talkerscode.com" required="required"/>
  <input type="submit" value="Find">
</form>

 <p class="rank_para"><?php echo $globalRank; ?></p>
 <p class="rank_para"><?php echo $countryRank;?></p>

</div>
</body>
</html>


In this step we create a function to get alexa rank this function is pre defined by alexa to fetch rank you have to only pass the website name.Then we create a form which is used to enter alexa rank.Then after submiting the form $alexa['globalRank'][0] is used to get the global rank and $alexa['CountryRank']['@attributes']['RANK'] is used to get rank in your own country.You may also like create sitemap using PHP.



Step 2.Make a CSS file and define styling

We make a CSS file and save it with a name rank.css

body 
{
 text-align:center;
 width:100%;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 font-family:helvetica;
 background-color:#424242;
}
#wrapper
{
 text-align:center;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 width:995px;
}
#rank_form p
{
 color:white;
 font-size:16px;
 font-weight:bold;
}
#rank_form input[type="text"]
{
 width:250px;
 height:40px;
 border:none;
 padding-left:10px;
 font-size:16px;
}
#rank_form input[type="submit"]
