From https://support.google.com/analytics...6171863?hl=en:

"30-Day Active Users: the number of unique users who initiated sessions on your site or app from January 1 through January 30 (the entire 30 days of your date range)."

I have more than 25 000 uniques monthly, but they usually don't use search (I mean, not all of them use search function). So, what do you count? My uniques, or people who would use search function and come from my site?

The former (monthly uniques for the site). We chose this instead of users who search, in order to get everyone on the same page around growing your forum, and to prevent turning search into something that has to be rationed (b/c we believe search is good!).

BTW, I just shared this with some other forum admins, but wanted to clarify:

You can install and run Threadloom on your forum w/o making it visible to all of your users. You can hit the Threadloom URL on your site directly, which is a way for you and your trusted members to try it out first before making a decision on whether to turn it on for all users. If you don't like it at any time, before or after you turn it on for your users you can uninstall the plug-in with one click and everything will go back to how it was before. So in short, we tried to make it:
  • Easy to install: 2 min. plug-in install (then let it index in the background)
  • Easy to test: Private URL to try it out
  • Easy to uninstall: 1-click uninstall

Your FAQ states that the user group search permissions are respected but it is unclear if forum permissions are. Will Threadloom return results from a forum that the searcher does not have access rights to?

Forum permissions are also respected. Threadloom will not return results from a forum that the searcher does not have access rights to.

What is the cost if one goes over 25,000...

Paul M 16 Mar 2017 19:35

If you visit their site you will see that, its not a topic for discussion here.

Understood

Does anyone have this installed and care to share the link so we can see it?

So far so good, it's a really big improvement on Vb's native search.

You can use it either way. The Threadloom plug-in routes all standard searches via your new cloud search index. Advanced searches will go through whatever you have installed today on yoru forum, whether sphinx or native vBulletin search.

I like this but it suddenly stopped working after a couple of days. I see the following message in admincp: "Your account name or access key is invalid".

This happened soon after upgrading to the latest version of the plugin but whether it is related to that I have no idea.

PM me your account name and I'll take a look. We had some sites that fell outside of our community standards and it's possible the notifications didn't get through.
