Both tests were done from a test location in California while our servers are located in Germany, we are using HTTPS and babyforum.de is about 2.8 times bigger than Baby Bargains (which does not use HTTPS) - shouldn't your product be a lot faster than our search?
Hi @Andreas - Threadloom will load faster than vB search on most forums, but I'm guessing that you're running on a pretty fast server. The nice thing is that Threadloom is easy to install and you can demo before going live. We've added a side-by-side preview mode that allows you to run a search in Threadloom and your legacy search simultaneously and watch the results load next to each other. You can see what it looks like on Baby Bargains.

Beyond speed, Threadloom has a bunch of other benefits like scaling to your search traffic (no spinning up additional servers when your traffic spikes), reducing your server traffic + associated costs, and spellcheck - ex: search for Maxi Cozi on Baby Bargains suggests Maxi Cosi but returns 0 results with standard search. And we're adding more...

Hope you'll give us a try. We like working with users, so let us know if you're interested and we'll be happy to talk through any questions you have.
