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.

Drop us an email at [email protected] if you have any questions.

HoSStiA - The default thread mask should work fine. vbSEO renames your URLs, but leaves vBulletin's thread structure intact. A quick example using vbseo.com:
*vbSEO thread URL: http://www.vbseo.com/f55/subdomain-41325/
*standard vBulletin thread URL: http://www.vbseo.com/forum/showthread.php?t=41325

Both URLs render the same thread. So, the mask would simply be http://www.vbseo.com/forum/showthread.php?t=%thread_id%

I'm happy to check out your site and let you know how to setup the mask. PM me an URL for a random thread.

You'll find screenshots on the Gravity site.

Some feedback, install was quick and easy and it's interesting to see the realtime visitors online and stats but I am not really sure if this are at the moment really usefull informations (for me). One bug, if clicking on a thread listed under Today's Most Viewed Conversations there opens a new page but says not input files specified.
Serverload seems normal although this is catching informations on real-time. One question, what's happening if your Gravity site is down for any reasons? Will this result any bad impact to my site?

Thanks for this addon.

Ramsesx - Thanks for the feedback!

Regarding the thread bug, clicking the thread should take you to a preview of the thread. If it doesn't work, check that you set up your thread mask properly (in Account Settings -> Manage Sites).

Regarding your question, the Gravity Insights beacon is very light, so you should not notice any latency. If Gravity were ever to go down, we'd simply miss activity on your site during that time. Your site will still load properly and request to our servers will quickly timeout.
