The utilization of Web 2.0 as a platform to comprehend the arduous task of expert identification is an upcoming trend. An open problem is to assess the level of expertise objectively in the web 2.0 communities formed. We propose the “ComEx Miner System” that realizes Expert Mining in Virtual Communities, as a solution for this by quantifying the degree of agreement between the sentiment of blog and respective comments received and finally ranking the blogs with the intention to mine the expert, the one with the highest rank score. In the proposed paradigm, it is the conformity & proximity of sentimental orientation of community member’s blog & comments received on it, which is used to rank the blogs and mine the expert on the basis of the blog ranks evaluated. The effectiveness of the paradigm is demonstrated giving a partial view of the phenomenon. The initial results show that it is a motivating technique.
