What people are saying?
  • Kevin Michaluk, Co-founder Crackberry.com: "Insights does an outstanding job giving us an instant overview of what's happening in real time on the CrackBerry.com forums. There's always a ton of activity and sometimes it's hard to keep up. Gravity Insights not only shows us which threads are the most active, but also gives us an easy way to identify new members who are contributing great content."
  • Ed Rieker, President of PbNation: "There are a lot of generic analytics services out there. Gravity Insights is NOT one of them. Insights does an amazing job of distilling all the activity in our community into useful information. Monitoring the forum in real-time has also never been easier. Because of Gravity Insights, I now know exactly what's happening on our site. The Gravity team is outstanding, a pleasure to work with and very responsive to our needs. I highly recommend them."
  • Patrick Clinger, President and CEO, ProBoards, Inc.:"With Gravity Insights I can see what's happening across the millions of ProBoards forums. Gravity Insights is the first analytics service that I've found that includes relevant forum statistics and can scale to meet our heavy traffic volume. As a big analytics user, I continue to be surprised by all the new things I'm discovering with Gravity Insights."


How does Gravity Insights work?
It’s pretty simple. Gravity Insights is a standard vBulletin plugin. Once installed, Gravity Insights puts a lightweight beacon (similar to Google Analytics) on every vBulletin generated webpage. In addition, Gravity Insights has custom hooks that initiate asynchronous server-to-server calls between your vBulletin server and the Gravity Insights servers. These hooks allow Gravity Insights to track all the things that standard analytics software can’t track (like new threads, new replies, new member registrations, etc.).


Requirements to use Gravity Insights
Gravity Insights has been tested with very large and very small forums. You’ll need vBulletin version 3.6 or later to use Gravity Insights. Gravity Insights also supports phpBB, Vanilla Forums, and ProBoards.


Legal stuff…
Gravity Insights is copyright protected by Project Rover, Inc. You’re free to use Gravity Insights (subject to our terms and privacy policy) on any vBulletin forum for which you hold a valid license.


Anything else?
Drop us an email at insights@gravity.com if you have any questions.

If you try Gravity Insights, please click mark as installed and rate the plugin to show your support. And again, let us know what you think – good or bad! How can we make Gravity Insights better for you?

Looks very interesting. Will dive into this and compare it against what we already use internally.

It might be a good side tool together with quantcast and google analytics

We've reserved the right to charge in our terms. We don't plan to charge for basic analytics service, but may create a premium pay version at some point.

Looks good! Installed. Thank you!

Question: Is it possible to change the timezone of the graph?

edit: Can anybody tell me the difference between "Replies" and "Conversations"?
edit2: Difference between "Conversation Views" and "Pageviews"?

edit3: This plugin ends up in an error-message on forumhome by the browser saying: "Error: 'VBAnalyticsCookie' is undefined! -> so I deactivated it for the moment

Hi.
Great product. Thanks for releasing it!

For all links pointing to specific threads (i.e. in the Live Stream Thread, Content page, etc) it is not putting in the /forums/ directory after my domain name.

For example http://www.mydomain.com/showthread.php?t=103590 SHOULD BE http://www.mydomain.com/forums/showthread.php?t=103590

The insights directory is located at http://www.mydomain.com/forums/insights

Can you help me understand what I need to do to fix this?
