    It is in the wp_options for each blog I would imagine.

    many people just hardcode the api in the plugin itself. But please read the licensing issues for Akismet with multiple blogs.

    Andrea answered you. For the api key to be included automatically it's usually hardcoded into the plugin. Editing the plugin's file and putting the key right into the code. Hardcoded. Not in the database. IIRC, it's even in the Akismet plugin's readme.

    However, there are licensing issue you need to sort out to do this.

    The alternate approach is, yes, to add the key via the dashboard which in turn stores it in the database, likely each blog's options table.
