I have the blog http://kracekumar.wordpress.com, I need to find the API KEY of my blog,I clicked on Global Dashboard->My profile,it was mentioned in wordpress site that it will be found in top left side,but I can't find it.

  • Shouldn't there be a "help" on wp.com?

You can get the API key by logging into WordPress.com, clicking "My Account" on the top bar, and clicking the "API Key" link.

  • After getting to that page i can't find the api key any where.

  • Depending on your account you may then see "You can get your API key direct from Akismet now." with a link to akismet.com/wordpress

"If you already have a WordPress.com account, your API key is listed on your profile page, which you can get to by clicking the “My Account” link in the top left when you’re logged in."
