I had my doubts at first, but now I am a believer!

    I will admit that when I first installed my XenForo forum and didn't receive any Google searches after almost two weeks I was a bit skeptical. My prior MyBB forum was receiving searches after 1 week and my IPB forum didn't receive any searches in 4 months.

    I thought to myself I sure hope this isn't going to be IPB all over again! Well I am happy to inform you that Saturday I received my first search. It felt like some one lifted a elephant off my chest. I thought to myself its only uphill from here. Little did I know that uphill meant the next day. Yesterday (Sunday) I received a mind blowing 8 searches on 7 different topics!

    The reason I say its mind blowing is because my forum has less then 1k posts. If I can receive this many searches in a day with under 1k posts. I can only imagine how many searches I am going to have at 10k posts! :D

    I am going to be starting another new forum in the next month or two. And XenForo will be my software of choice!

    I'm guessing he's using Google Analytics.

    or any other analyse software:)

    I'm preferring piwik (because of my users privacy), which also shows the search terms:
