What people are saying?
  • Kevin Michaluk, Co-founder "Insights does an outstanding job giving us an instant overview of what's happening in real time on the 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.
