Description

Threadloom Search provides an easy way to upgrade your forum with cloud search. It is 10x faster than vBulletin search. It also gives you image search, spell correction, and WordPress search.

Threadloom Search is now available as a supplemental option to the native forum search

In addition to various fixes and improvements, this update includes a new feature that lets your forum members choose (and save) Threadloom Search or your native forum search engine as their default search engine. You no longer have to choose between the two – your members can have both. As an admin, however, you are able to set either option as the default search engine for new visitors to your forum. You can learn more from our blog post here.

If you’d like to learn more about this feature please check out our Help Center articles:
Examples

Threadloom is installed on 150+ forums with 400M posts, including: 4x4 Community SA, Air Rifle SA, AULRO, AZ Billiards, Baby Bargains, BayouShooter, Fiat Forum, FreedomCardBoard, Golden Skate, and Muscle Mecca.


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 Baby Bargains

Fixes typos and word breaks, and recognizes popular brands and slang.

Custom search tabs
Lets you configure tabs that automatically search over your WordPress blog, storefront, or any crawlable web page.

Advanced search filters
Restrict by forum, user, tag, or thread prefix, with typeahead suggestions.

Auto-scaling

Baby Bargains case study

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.

Questions and answers
Q: Do you sell or share my data?
A: No. We will never sell or share your data.

Q: Do you offer a free version?
A: Yes. Threadloom Search is free for sites with up to 10 Million posts, if you'd like a free trial of it for a larger forum, please contact us.

Q: Do I have to pay if my members or guests search more?
A: No. All tiers – free or paid – include unlimited searches.

Q: Do you support other versions of vBulletin.
A: Yes. Threadloom Search is tested and supported on vBulletin 3.8 and 4.x. View our vBulletin 4.x page.

Q: How is Threadloom Search different from Sphinx?
A: Threadloom Search uses the latest in search technology to return more accurate results. It includes image search, spell correction, and WordPress search. It's also easier to perform advanced searches, and easier for you to administer because you don't have to run anything on your server.

Q: What if your servers go down?
A: We're built on Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure, which are fairly reliable. If they do hiccup, Threadloom Search automatically fails over to native search.

Q: Do you observe my theme settings?
A: Yes. You can also override colors with RGB of hex values.

Q: Is your UI responsive?
A: Yes. Check out the example links above from whichever device you prefer, or see the attached mobile screenshots.

Q: How does this integrate with Threadloom Newsletter?
A: Threadloom Search forums who also use Threadloom Newsletter will eventually get the option of personalized email newsletters for their members.

If your forum is over the 1 Million post mark for Search, you will be charged starting at $5 a month, but if not you will never be charged.

If your pages are "Amped" our JS ensures it's removed from those pages. Potentially we could have an AMP compatible search page, but this hasn't been confirmed yet.
