Threadloom has dramatically boosted our site's search effectiveness, lowered bounce rates and increased the time folks are staying on our site. Our members are amazed at how fast Threadloom returns results . . . And the accuracy blows away the old search engine!

Questions and answers
Q: Do you sell or share my data?​
A: No. We will never sell or share your data.​

Q: Do you offer a free version?​
A: Yes. Threadloom Search is free for sites with up to 10M posts no credit card required!

Q: How do you make money?​
A: We charge a monthly fee for larger forums.​

Q: Do I have to pay if my members or guests search more?​
A: No. All tiers free or paid include unlimited searches.​

Q: Do you offer a free trial?​
A: Yes. You can try it for free for 30 days regardless of how large your forum is. If your community has less than 10 million posts, it's free.

Q: How is Threadloom Search different from vBulletin Sphinx Search?​
A: Threadloom Search returns 10x more results. It includes image search, spell correction, and WordPress search. It's also easier to perform advanced searches, and easier for you to administer because you don't have to run anything on your server.​

Q: What if your servers go down?​
A: We're built on Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure, which are fairly reliable. If they do hiccup, Threadloom Search automatically fails over to native search.​

Q: Do you observe my theme settings?​
A: Yes. You can also override colors with RGB or hex values.​

Q: Is your UI responsive?​
A: Yes. Check out the example links above from whichever device you prefer, or see the attached mobile screenshots.​

Q: Do you search over non-forum parts of my site?​
A: Yes. We do this through Custom Search Tabs, meaning that the parts of the site need to be crawlable / visible to search engines.​

Q: Does the plug-in work for vBulletin 3.x?​
A: Yes.​ Please see our listing here.

Q: How do I modify the vBulletin 4.2.x sidebar on Threadloom Search result pages?​
A: Yes. This requires an additional modification. You can find the instructions here.​
