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.

If you try Gravity Insights, please click mark as installed and rate the plugin to show your support. And again, let us know what you think – good or bad! How can we make Gravity Insights better for you?

How is the transfer of the user IP addresses handled? Are thereby completely transmitted and evaluated, or they are partially "rendered useless"?

This is great stuff - I've been having some issues with accuracy, but otherwise I'm very impressed and this blows any other forum stats option (especially vBulletin's built-in horror) out of the water.

Kudos, Gravity.

We're not supporting multiple time zones for the time being. All times are in Pacific time (UTC -8). Sorry.

Regarding the crazy characters, we may be having some character encoding issues. Let me know if you keep seeing things like that.

Love love love my gravity insights! Some very awesome information and they guys have been very prompt with assistance when I've needed it. We're running it on a private forum with about 5500 members at this point.

Did I mention I love it!

^^Private forum? What information is transmitted to Gravity Insights?

If you have Gravity Insights installed, when a user visits your community you transmit traffic information (such as which webpages a user views) and user activity information (such as post content and related metadata). By transmitting this information to us, we are able to enable Gravity Insight's killer features without putting a significant load on your servers.

TBH, I think gravity have done an EXCELLENT job. Looks great, and nice info. But be warned about privacy/confidentiality issues if it is relevant to you.

Are you going to support multiple time zones?

Sorry, I didn't desribe the problem precisely. "Crazy characters" are instead Polish diacritic sings, so you don't support latin-2 encoding.
