Ever wanted to know who’s commenting the most on your blog and what posts they are commenting on? Now your Site Stats can tell you.
The new Comments panel in your Site Stats provides three tabs: Top Commenters, Most Commented, and a Summary of comments on your blog.
If your blog has fewer than 1000 total comments, your comment stats are based on all comments made since you started your blog. Comment stats for more active blogs reflect the most recent three months of comment activity.
For example, a blog with 500 total comments will have the most commented post be the one that has had the most comments across the entire life of the blog. For this blog (with 87K comments) the most commented post is chosen from the posts that were posted in the past three months.
The Stats Comments Panel is available now for all WordPress.com blogs. Jetpack users, please bear with us as we improve Jetpack to serve you the new comment stats in the future.
Check out the comment stats on your blog by going to your blog’s Dashboard > Site Stats or from your admin bar under Blogs > [YOUR SITE NAME] > Site Stats.

Great!!it was necessary!!!thank you.
This is good. Thank you!
What a great idea! Thanks for all the improvements you continue to make to WordPress. It is an awesome site for blogging.
Brilliant! Thanks for all those improvements you make for us users. I love wordpress and I use it with educational purpose for my students who work on different projects and the best way to show our work is through WordPress.
This is awesome! I love the idea, I’ll definitely check it out :) THank you.
This is fantastic, except it does not show the screen you are showing up there. I am still seeing the old screen :(
Yes, I closed the window and signed in again.
Hopefully I get that too in the next few days.
Nevah mind, of course it helps to look at the right thing,
Sorry folks. Dinosaur here…
I <3 WordPress even more!!
Wow, now I love this new addition, this is really nice to see at a glance what is going on, you have done a fantastic job with this. now only one question it says under my comments for the time of day when most comments are made 12:00 is this am or pm? or both?
Excellent! All additions to the stats page are welcome–my inner nerd rejoices. My outer nerd is quite happy as well. :)
I really like this feature. Is there a way to show these stats without including me as one of the commenters?
Awesome! Thanks WordPress! I always refer potential bloggers to this site! :) Very happy blogging here.
A wonderful little extra. :-) Love it.
The idea is great!
I don’t like this idea at all. It’s gathering too much information about my readers; what’s next, their personal information?
I love the anonymity my readers enjoy. I blog anonymously myself and I know for a fact that several of my readers change their comment name for the situation, creating some funny monikers even.
I hope WP doesn’t take this experiment any further.
Love this :D
Very cool. Thank you!
Brilliant ideas and priceless tools constantly anticipating our requirements.
Thank you for making our ‘high-fly’ with you so comfortable.
Really useful, much appreciated!
Further to my comment above (listed as 7 Sept @ 5.40pm UK time) here is my post with 14 comments (actually 28 comments as I always reply by editing into the original comment rather than adding another myself).
also the following have 7 views each (14 including my replies)
this has 6 views (12 incl reply)
and there are 8 posts each with 5 comments (10 incl replies), the same as the top listed one, yet only two make it onto your list.
Hope you can sort me out!!
Cool – now I know who is commenting on my site. Currently not that many but everyone here is invited… :D
Thanks for the head’s up. This will definitely be a good thing and I use all of Jetpack now.
I can´t find the option in my site. Can you help me?
It’s a really useful feature, long awaited. Thanks you very much!.
This is NICE!
It isn´t true. My Blog is http://www.cienciamisterio.wordpress.com. There are comments.
Thank you so much.
“Innovations per day” at WP has increased substantially these days??
Are you guys planning for an IPO or PE funding? ;-)
I like this! Even with a small traffic blog like mine, it’s nice to see this kind of breakdown for my comments, and I’m sure it’s even more helpful for blogs with large followings. Thanks for all the work you guys put into making WordPress that much better every time we turn around!
I love this addition to the site stats!
Loving this new addition, especially now you have fixed the bug in my stats and we agree on comment numbers! Thanks Greg
I’d love to see that in the next version of wordpress ….
I saw this little gadget this morning and it made me all giddy. My favorite part is how it shows the busiest time of day. :-)
فكرة جيدة …اتمنى لكم مزيد من التقدم :)
Thank you. I notice the add today, really lets me know who is talking. Keep up the good work.
This is great but it would be better if ones own comments weren’t included. Can that be fixed?
You guys keep amazing me with the stuff you guys create for WP platform…awesome!!!
It would be better, if ‘Most Comments’ is available as widgets. We can inspire people to comment.
i saw this today, very cool!
Love it! Thank you! =)
Wickedly kewl. I don’t have to look to know who mine is. I wish we had this same app for countries. I write for an international audience so I have an app on my sidebar to keep up with those stats. However, it would be even better if WordPress had their own app or site stats to tally that info….I’m sure I’m not the only one who writes for like 40 different countries on a regular basis!
I am so totally wp for life. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Nicely done WordPress, and a big thank you! :)
thanks a lot :)
Cool. A handy little feature. :)
I saw it today and loved it…thanks for this!
Great and growth continuously of wordpress… good luck
yes I see..and Wow..it’s really cool, when and where we have commenting display in here.. ;-)
This is good! But one widget like that on my side bar can i have? That will help me to reward the best commenter ! Sorry for the bad english!
When are you going to do the IP-Country mapping for the stats?
That one cool feature. Can’t wait to use it. Thanks.
This is really a great way for me to see and communicate with my commentors. Thank you. Tom B.
Very nice! Thank you WP :)
another great innovation… thanks…
This is without doubt an excellent tool and will provide the kind of help that i needed. as a newbie you are all over the place to collect information ta assist you. this will help me to be more organized. thank you very much.
I may enable comments to see how effectively Akismet blocks spam, so I don’t need to spend ages checking comments myself. If it filters as well as gmail does I would be happy.
I did not see your notification in my in box.
I was pleasantly surprised to see this feature .
Keep up the good work, wp, as you always do.
You know, I’d ALSO like to know who gives me four or five stars.
Or maybe I’m the only one who doesn’t know how to obtaing this info . . .
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GREAT WORK AND I AM GLAD THAT I JOINED THIS WONDERFUL COMMUNITY.GOD IS THE GREATEST.
Thank you !
Thanks, this is very helpful info.
I’ve been wanting to see separate totals for reader comments and my replies. Gotta do a little math to see total reader comments, but at least it’s there.
thanls lot for ur informs
Thank you! This is great – also the ‘most commented’ is so welcome!
Great! Thank you for regular improvements.
Thank you, I now dont need to a third part website for stat.
It would also be lovely to have unique visior stats, not just page views (which is SO inaccurate if you want to get a rough estimate of viewers of your blog). I figured this out when I installed sitemeter… and then found out that this is standard on blogger! Will this be happening any time soon? I’m sure it would be useful to a LOT of wordpress.com users.
That’s Great. WordPress is really making everything happen for us. Thanks My blog: http://ethanchellan.wordpress.com
this seems cool but I’ve looked everywhere and I don’t see it.
i checked under comments, under stats and I don’t see this panel :/ I have over 5000 comments on my blog so disappointing that I can’t see this.
wait ignore my comment, I found it! it was out of my sigh haha please disregard!
Very nice! Thank you .
Thank you so much for this:-)!
wordpress.com is getting better and better all the time! I love it<3
I am always surprise when I see something new in the stats field:-D
have a great weekend
I agree with what “Emily @ Wardrobe Block” says about unique visitors or at least visits not only page wives
fraternal greetings from the Democratic People’s Republic of Glossolalia. We commend you on your improvements. In areas where you have not improved, we admonish you, for your own good.
Greg, marvellous addition to the stats… any chance you’ll expand it to list the amount of comments for all time? My blog has had quite a few comments… it would be cool to give my readers a league table of the most active users.
Very helpful! Thank you
is good for me, I have 999 comments !!
I would love it if you rolled this feature into the .org backend (JetPack).
Ha ha! Cool! Now we can discover and thus stalk our top commenters! I love this. =P
Oh, I love it! It’s very good thing for anybody like me, ho must keep track of all about blog’s stats! Thank you for it…
I have over 12000 comments in my blog so it is quite useful. Is there any way to display the commenter wise comments on the home page ? It may be useful.
