Here's how to hide alexa widget in blogger. With Google PR update not done for ages, only few metrics are left out to measure up the popularity of blogs and websites. For example Website's Alexa Rank, Moz's Domain Authority & Page Authority and Majestic SEO's Trust Flow & Citation Flow are some of the key metrics that determines Websites health to certain extent.
But Alexa Rank can be easily manipulated and having high alexa rank doesn't guarantee for high traffic. Even then maintaining good alexa rank (which is less than 100K) would make your blog/website look decent in the eyes of your visitors and potential advertisers.
Alexa determines a website rank by their traffic and only counts of those visitors who have Alexa extension installed on their browsers. So even if your blog ranks higher on search engines but most of your site's visitors don't have alexa extension installed, then your Alexa Rank will not increase.
