HowTo: Find your api key

  1. To use stats you will need to provide your api key. Here's how to find it:

    1. Sign in at
    2. Select 'My Account'
    3. Click the 'API Key and other Personal Settings' link
    4. You will see the API Key displayed, go to your blog settings in the app and enter this key

    Once that is complete, go to the stats view and load a report of your choosing!

  2. Has something been changed? I can't find mine, just a link to Akismet where it appears I have to pay?

  3. The easiest way to find your key is to visit

    You will see your username and your API Key, which is a string of 12 letters and numbers. Note that you have to be logged in to

    Take a look at the documentation page here:

    which role do you have in that blog, are you and administrator?

  6. Hi

    I have a self-hosted site and needed an API key to add plugins. I found out I needed a account, which I did, creating a "dummy" blog in the process, just to get that key, which I now have. If I delete this dummy blog do I retain this key? Seems overly complicated, really. Thanks for your help!
