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.
Sep 7th at 5:35 pm
This is good. Thank you!
Sep 7th at 5:37 pm
What a great idea! Thanks for all the improvements you continue to make to WordPress. It is an awesome site for blogging.
Sep 7th at 5:52 pm
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.
Sep 7th at 5:56 pm
This is awesome! I love the idea, I’ll definitely check it out THank you.
Sep 7th at 6:02 pm
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.
Sep 7th at 6:04 pm
Nevah mind, of course it helps to look at the right thing,
Sorry folks. Dinosaur here…
Sep 7th at 6:09 pm
I <3 WordPress even more!!
Sep 7th at 6:11 pm
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?
Sep 7th at 6:13 pm
Excellent! All additions to the stats page are welcome–my inner nerd rejoices. My outer nerd is quite happy as well.
Sep 7th at 6:43 pm
I really like this feature. Is there a way to show these stats without including me as one of the commenters?
Sep 7th at 6:47 pm
Awesome! Thanks WordPress! I always refer potential bloggers to this site! Very happy blogging here.
Sep 7th at 6:50 pm
A wonderful little extra. Love it.
Sep 7th at 6:58 pm
The idea is great!
Sep 7th at 7:09 pm
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.
Sep 7th at 7:20 pm
Sep 7th at 7:38 pm
Very cool. Thank you!
Sep 7th at 7:51 pm
Brilliant ideas and priceless tools constantly anticipating our requirements.
Thank you for making our ‘high-fly’ with you so comfortable.
Sep 7th at 8:11 pm
Really useful, much appreciated!
Sep 7th at 8:30 pm
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!!
Sep 7th at 8:54 pm
Cool – now I know who is commenting on my site. Currently not that many but everyone here is invited…
Sep 7th at 9:01 pm
Thanks for the head’s up. This will definitely be a good thing and I use all of Jetpack now.
Sep 7th at 9:01 pm
I can´t find the option in my site. Can you help me?
Sep 7th at 9:12 pm
It’s a really useful feature, long awaited. Thanks you very much!.
Sep 7th at 9:18 pm
This is NICE!
Sep 7th at 9:32 pm
It isn´t true. My Blog is http://www.cienciamisterio.wordpress.com. There are comments.
Sep 7th at 9:34 pm
Thank you so much.
Sep 7th at 9:43 pm
“Innovations per day” at WP has increased substantially these days??
Are you guys planning for an IPO or PE funding?
Sep 7th at 9:47 pm
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!
Sep 7th at 9:54 pm
I love this addition to the site stats!
Sep 7th at 10:59 pm
Loving this new addition, especially now you have fixed the bug in my stats and we agree on comment numbers! Thanks Greg
Sep 7th at 11:29 pm
I’d love to see that in the next version of wordpress ….
Sep 7th at 11:45 pm
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.
Sep 8th at 12:15 am
فكرة جيدة …اتمنى لكم مزيد من التقدم
Sep 8th at 12:39 am
Thank you. I notice the add today, really lets me know who is talking. Keep up the good work.
Sep 8th at 12:55 am
This is great but it would be better if ones own comments weren’t included. Can that be fixed?
Sep 8th at 1:29 am
Sep 8th at 1:42 am
You guys keep amazing me with the stuff you guys create for WP platform…awesome!!!
Sep 8th at 1:53 am
It would be better, if ‘Most Comments’ is available as widgets. We can inspire people to comment.
Sep 8th at 2:06 am
i saw this today, very cool!
Sep 8th at 2:15 am
Love it! Thank you! =)
Sep 8th at 2:39 am
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!
Sep 8th at 3:15 am
I am so totally wp for life. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Sep 8th at 4:48 am
Nicely done WordPress, and a big thank you!
Sep 8th at 4:52 am
thanks a lot
Sep 8th at 5:25 am
Cool. A handy little feature.
Sep 8th at 5:39 am
I saw it today and loved it…thanks for this!
Sep 8th at 5:46 am
Great and growth continuously of wordpress… good luck
Sep 8th at 6:23 am
Sep 8th at 7:59 am
yes I see..and Wow..it’s really cool, when and where we have commenting display in here..
Sep 8th at 8:06 am
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!
Sep 8th at 8:07 am
When are you going to do the IP-Country mapping for the stats?
Sep 8th at 8:55 am
That one cool feature. Can’t wait to use it. Thanks.
Sep 8th at 11:08 am
This is really a great way for me to see and communicate with my commentors. Thank you. Tom B.
Sep 8th at 12:34 pm
Very nice! Thank you WP
Sep 8th at 12:45 pm
another great innovation… thanks…
Sep 8th at 1:09 pm
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.
Sep 8th at 1:31 pm
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.
Sep 8th at 1:49 pm
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.
Sep 8th at 2:09 pm
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 . . .
Sep 8th at 2:13 pm
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GREAT WORK AND I AM GLAD THAT I JOINED THIS WONDERFUL COMMUNITY.GOD IS THE GREATEST.
Sep 8th at 3:07 pm
Thank you !
Sep 8th at 4:45 pm
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.
Sep 8th at 6:15 pm
thanls lot for ur informs
Sep 8th at 6:24 pm
Thank you! This is great – also the ‘most commented’ is so welcome!
Sep 8th at 7:29 pm
Great! Thank you for regular improvements.
Sep 8th at 7:48 pm
Thank you, I now dont need to a third part website for stat.
Sep 8th at 7:51 pm
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.
Sep 8th at 8:04 pm
That’s Great. WordPress is really making everything happen for us. Thanks My blog: http://ethanchellan.wordpress.com
Sep 8th at 11:00 pm
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.
Sep 8th at 11:01 pm
wait ignore my comment, I found it! it was out of my sigh haha please disregard!
Sep 9th at 4:33 am
Sep 9th at 7:28 am
Very nice! Thank you .
Sep 9th at 9:33 am
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
Sep 9th at 9:35 am
I agree with what “Emily @ Wardrobe Block” says about unique visitors or at least visits not only page wives
Sep 9th at 9:58 am
Sep 9th at 11:33 am
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.
Sep 9th at 7:05 pm
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.
Sep 9th at 9:23 pm
Very helpful! Thank you
Sep 10th at 12:37 am
is good for me, I have 999 comments !!
Sep 10th at 1:08 pm
I would love it if you rolled this feature into the .org backend (JetPack).
Sep 10th at 9:37 pm
Ha ha! Cool! Now we can discover and thus stalk our top commenters! I love this. =P
Sep 10th at 11:24 pm
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…
Sep 11th at 3:31 am
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.
