Key Metrics for Building Engagement in Discourse

Hey @Discourse, I’m aware that there are various metrics like Signups, Topics, Posts, and more. I wanted to know specifically which metrics I should focus on to foster community growth and engagement. Additionally, if there are any other suggestions or strategies that can be implemented with Discourse to further enhance growth and engagement, please let me know. Your input is highly appreciated. Thanks!


In general the key metrics you use should flow from your community strategy :slight_smile:
What are you trying to achieve with your community?

These communities will have completely different KPIs and growth strategies:

  1. A non-profit forum for Gardening Enthousiasts
  2. A community run by for Neurosurgeons looking for work
  3. A support forum for Samsung printers

These are a couple of great resources which might provide some helpful insight.
