Comment followers?

    I’m very confused about what a comment follower is, and how its possible to have them when noone has posted a comment. This happened on a post of 1 of my blogs that I don’t allow comments, and the other blog has 1 comment follower each for two different posts yet there are no comments for either. Whats the deal?

    You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.

    We can’t help you here at WordPress.com with the site linked to your username is not a free hosted WordPress.com blog, and they are the only ones we provide support for on this forum. You must post to the correct forum for your software http://wordpress.org/support/

    Please link that free hosted WordPress.com blog to your WordPress.com username. Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Website‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    I’m also having this same problem. I had a comment follower on day 1 but I’m pretty sure no-one else had even seen the blog at that point. Now I have a follower on 3 different posts. When I go to look at ‘comment subscribers’, all I can see is which post and how many followers – how do I find out who they are?

    Thanks.

    Blog owners can see how many people are following comments on their posts from the Site Stats page: http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/#totals-followers-shares
    Your site stats page displays how many followers you have, who your followers are, as well as how many people are subscribed to post comments on your site.

    On that page scroll down to “Totals, Followers & Shares”
    Then click the links.
    Site followers: __active followers
    Comment followers: __ followers, __ following

    More on number of readers following your blog and blog posts comments.

    Hi

    I’ve done that but not seeing who is following, just a number but I don’t think it’s right. This is what I get: http://imgur.com/a/ehjyv

    It’s possible someone is signing up to follow a comment thread, but their comment is either going to moderation or to your spam filter… so: no comment, but a comment follower.
