Gravity Insights real-time forum analytics

UNDERSTAND YOUR FORUM CONTENT AND USERS. MAKE BETTER DECISIONS FOR YOUR COMMUNITY.

Gravity Insights is a real-time forum analytics service. Gravity Insights is the only analytics service designed to help forum administrators understand their content and users and make their sites better. With Insights, you’ll have a detailed understanding of who comes to your site, why they come to your site and how they interact with your content.

Please visit http://insights.gravity.com for more information.

  6. and hundreds more


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 [email protected] if you have any questions.

Looks good but why hasnt it been updated since April? Does it work with the several vbulletin updates since April. Also I see its $99 is it worth paying for the premium version?

I received this hack / service when I purchased vBSEO and a few weeks later I had to disable it. My forum has been running extremely slow since installing insights and my traffic has suffered drastically because of it. I disabled the hack and it seems better. It's a shame because this is a very nice addition to any forum, but it certainly seemed to slow down mine to the point of disabling.

FYI - I'm on a dedicated server too.

Same here. BigBoard with quite a few servers running for diff services, yet Gravity Insights was slowing my forums! And support is terrible, I waited 1 week until I got a reply. I am a vbseo customer.

Great tool but I cant afford losing visitors.

Sorry to hear, unfortunately I'm in the same boat as you. The tool is very useful, but certainly no where near the loss of traffic. My traffic suffered a lot, in fact almost 10K less visitors in under a month.

Have the developers given up on this one?

Why would anyone use this instead of Google Analytical which is free and provides a lot more information about the site, then does their $99 version?

Regards,
Doug

Great stuff! Thanks for this, at some point as we continue to grow, will definitely look to the
"upgraded" version of this

One thing you might want to BOLD in the install instructions is the importance of uploading
the FOLDER(Directory) and not just files to the root

Because just uploading files will result in forum urls displaying a blank page
(I know that from experience :-P )

Anyhow thanks for great software!
