Overview

============================
  • vBSEO LiveStats for vBulletin allows admins to instantly check their forum's search performance, without ever leaving the page!
  • See benefits and examples below.
  • Just click the hovering tab (viewable only to admins) to launch the report.
  • An ultra easy to read micro report shows you how many hits you are getting, from which keywords, and from which sites.
  • Find out how the entire forum is performing, or get stats only for the currently viewed page.
  • Very powerful, but conveniently simple and user friendly.
Search engine hits are the rocket fuel of a successful forum. Stats tools like Google Analytics provide the data you need to measure your performance. However, it requires you to login into GA, and drill down into its many report formats. You know the result: Many admins simply forget about their stats most of the time, and really don't know which pages are actually performing (or not).

vBSEO LiveStats gives you all the data you need in a split second, without leaving the forum. You get all the valuable info to know immediately how your pages are performing, without spending any time figuring out the complexities of Google Analytics.


Benefits and Example Usage

============================
  • Success - See examples below.
  • Save time - Loads instantly, on-demand, while browsing your forum. You don't need to leave the page.
  • Easy to use - Opens with easy to read micro-report ready for you. No drill down required.
  • Instant info - Find out if a "page" is performing without ever launching Google Analytics (or trying to dig through it's many reports to get what you want)
  • Secure - Only visible by admins with granted permissions.

Example 1 - Why is that thread so hot all of a sudden?


You notice more guest users are online. Several of them are reading and posting to a particular thread. You go to that thread and click "stats". LiveStats loads on demand and gives you the micro report. It turns out for the past 24 hours you are getting hits for one of your top keywords!


Example 2 - Was that email effective?


You send out an email to your forum members, telling them about an important new announcement. How many of them actually were interested? You browse to the announcement thread, load LiveStats on-demand. It turns out 25% of your members visited your announcement within 24 hours of sending the email.


Example 3 - Is my participation at another forum getting me any hits?


You have been actively posting at a related forum to build links and get some click through traffic. Are you getting any clicks by the visitors there? You browse to the page you were linking to, load LiveStats on-demand, and see if the site you are targeting is sending you traffic this week. It looks like you are getting some hits.


Example 4 - I installed vBSEO last month. How much new traffic am I getting?


You vBSEO-enabled your forum to get more search traffic, but you want to find out how well it's working. This will be your 30 day progress report. You load LiveStats on-demand on *any* page of your forum and click the link for your Global site report. You set the date for 30 days before you installed. Looks like you got 100,000 hits that month. Now you set it for the 30 days you had vBSEO installed. It turns out you had 105,000 hits the first month with vBSEO, so your traffic is up by 5%.


Example 5 - Are your new articles getting any hits?


You are building your content by writing new articles related to your forum topic. This week you created 10 new articles. As you visit each article, you load LiveStats on-demand and instantly see the total hits, keywords, and other sites that are sending you traffic since the article was created. Looks like 3 of your articles are doing better than the others. Common factor: A keyword rich title. It turns out LiveStats has helped you zero in on the best way to optimize your content to get more traffic.


How do you use LiveStats? Please tell us...



What does it do?

installed but it still show the login/pass page, even after i enter it, it loads but never got any stats.

It doesn't show me as login after I filled the login details in the settings. Also, the profile ID doesn't automatically fill in after I put the ID in.

This is the 3rd times I installed this. the first two i downloaded form vbseo site. No go for me.

Tested in chrome and firefox.

Same here, this part is not very clear https://www.google.com/analytics/set...ry?id=xxxxxxxx because I don't know how to get to this exact page, that should be explained.

It would also be nice if this had a feature to enable/disable.

It is located within Google Analytics interferance. Login and edit your site details. The id is located over there.

Quantnet 09 Jul 2009 15:20

to get the profile id, you go to your analytics setting pages, and next to your www.site.com, on the right, there is an Edit link where you can click on it.

Quantnet 09 Jul 2009 15:21

what are usual reasons why this does not work?

I filled in all the data correctly, there is only one domain on my GA account and yet, the Live stat page still ask me to enter log in. after I enter, it just spinning forever.

Shaheen 09 Jul 2009 15:26

Thanks will give it a try ;)

Vinyljunky 09 Jul 2009 15:37

Im confident that I have installed and configured it correctly. But I dont get any stats just a loading type animated bar :confused:

And yes I use VBSEO and Google Analytics :up:

Brandon Sheley 09 Jul 2009 16:11

thanks, I've been using this for a few months and love it!

Calash 09 Jul 2009 16:42

On the login page I had to remove the @gmail.com from my user ID, otherwise it would sit there and spin forever.

Works very well on VB pages. It does not work on vBadvanced or external VB powered pages. I will have to look at the code later and see if it is something easy to resolve.
