Viewing your Akismet stats data

All Akismet subscriptions include access to statistical data regarding their usage and activity. To access stats for any of your sites, simply visit your account dashboard and scroll down to the Active Sites section. This section displays the top 500 sites associated with your key for the selected month. The sites are ordered by API usage. Click on the Stats link for the site’s URL to access a site’s stats.

This will open the stats for that particular site in a brand new browser window.

Akismet Site Stats

You can view monthly (monthly and daily if you have any subscription above Personal), annual, and historical stats. You can further customize the chart by selecting any data type (spam, ham, missed spam, or false positives) and removing it from view.

You will also have access to a breakdown of your monthly stats:

If you use Akismet on multiple sites and would like to see account-wide stats, you can simply click on the appropriate link at the bottom of your Active Sites card:

With a paid plan, you also have the option to download the stats by clicking the “Download historical data as CSV” button at the top of the dashboard.


Please note that for the stats section, you also have an option to view stats for a particular site and there we show names of sites that have been active in the last three months.

Downloading monthly stats data
