BabyBargains.com case study
For sessions with a search:



Threadloom is the first cloud search engine designed specifically for forums. Two months after installing Threadloom, searches on BabyBargains.com increased six-fold, while the time to complete a search decreased 90%. Sessions with a site search showed greater engagement compared to the year prior lower bounce rates, more pages per session, and longer session durations.

Threadloom has dramatically boosted our site's search effectiveness, lowered bounce rates and increased the time folks are staying on our site. Our members are amazed at how fast Threadloom returns results . . . And the accuracy blows away the old search engine!
Alan Fields, owner of BabyBargains.com

This plug-in replaced your native search engine with a powerful, easy-to-use, cloud-based search engine, that makes it easier for your users to find the best content in your forum.

Search controls are in English, but Arabic post content should be fine.

It's free for as long as your forum has 25K monthly actives or fewer. If your forums is or grows above that, there are paid options. Every subscription free and paid includes unlimited posts and unlimited searches.

Okay...that wasn't clear to me...and I'm only trying to make sure our site policies are observed.

I do want to mention (for the benefit of others) that the installation on my local dev site consistently timed out, and I had to increase the maximum execution time by entering the following line in my "includes/config.php" file:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Once the product is installed (if you need this), then comment it out.

I would also like to say that the install for this product is very nicely and professionally done, with no need to manually upload any files to the server.

I know I have gotten many complaints from my users regarding the intrinsic vB search engine, and I will be looking into this as an alternative. Thank you for sharing.

Will this work on a local server? I had to enter the information from the public site I help admin, but it doesn't seem to work on my local server. I generally test things on my local server before going "live" with them.

Yes, this will work on a local server provided it can make a secure connection to our servers. Feel free to PM me or email me at support at threadloom dot com and I'm happy to take a closer look.

Before enabling Threadloom, we need to create your index. The first sync usually takes 6-12 hours. (We’ve designed the plug-in to not interfere with other operations, e.g., scheduled tasks, backups.)

Nice tweak, installed!


Could you fix that?
I'm using vB 4.2.4

EDIT: Whole board has been broken after uninstalling this mod. I suppose this should not happen....

@seb5594: Thanks for the report. There are no references to "Notif" in our code and our threadloom.php file has fewer than 400 lines. Is it possible another user/process overwrote the file?

Please define exactly what this means.
Free for all forums with up to 25,000 monthly active users

i.e. what exactly is a "monthly active user" ?

As defined by Google Analytics. We have some more info on this on our website at https://www.threadloom.com/pricing (scroll down to Pricing FAQs).

All that states is ;
We use Google Analytics to measure the number of monthly active users. At the start of each billing cycle, we measure the number of monthly active users from the trailing month.
It doesnt define what that count is actually counting.
