    I am a newbie and I am not tech savvy like many of you here. The Knowledge exchange forum is what I read the most to keep myself updated. I am unable to get to end of any thread here because of all the ego clashes. It is difficult to follow this thread, though there is a wealth of information. can we please... speak just about the knowledge exchange part here... sorry to says this but this would really help.  No offense meant .. Just a request

      Sofs, there are lots of Hubs by Sunforged, Darkside and Susana S which you should be reading too.

        Yes I do read ,but  sometimes it helps when a person is asking a question regarding the same problems you have and others suggesting  workable methods.  I actually find it very helpful to follow the discussion then check out the sites mentioned and work from there. That's where I am coming from.

    Sorry sofs, I just have to laugh.

    You see everybody, it isn't just the religious forums!

      Not gonna happen, sorry. There is more than one way to skin a cat, and everyone believes their way is the best, if not the only. smile

      Hi sofs.

      There is no way to share the knowledge. To be frank, there are many ways to be successful as a writer or hubber. However, each person has their own ways.

      For example, you can write on things you love and others might just be a general writer.

      The best method I experienced is write what you liked best and learn from mistakes (from comments). You can also read other hubber's hub regardless if they are good or bad.

      The more you read, the more idea you get!

      Good luck!

      The disagreements in the knowledge forum have been a little worse than usual, don't worry though it will probably just ebd up with the usual, person gets banned, things get really quiet, then things pick up again.

        Actually the Need Help, Knowledge Forum and Report a Problem threads are usually fairly agreeable.  You'll always get some friction when you have people with diametrically opposing views on things - but I agree, it's out of character for these threads, so I hope it settles down again soon.

      I was very surprised yesterday and the day before to find just how polarized things have become.

        I try not to get too hip deep in aligators.  Keep things on the light side.  We all learn from one another, right or wrong.  Have a great time on Hub Pages, and write a lot.

      Please share knowledge!

      I have noticed that many hubbers, new and veteran, have found their way to this forum thread.... lol

      Yet, not a single person has bothered to ask Sofs anything specific with regards to what knowledge she would like shared? hmm Now, that's sad.

      So with that said-

      What are you trying to learn Sofs?

      Sorry Cagsil, still kind of exhausted from watching the bloody battlefield of broken illusions.

            Website Examiner, it still makes no sense to be apologizing to me, of all people. hmm

              I wasn't apologizing to you; it was "Sorry" as in "Regrettably,..." An explanation, in other words.

      Cags, wonderful idea...ask a question sofs and you'll get many great answers!

      I also encourage you to read the likes of sunforged, darkside, & relache.  I would also encourage you to use the search bar to search for the exact topic you wish to learn more about.  You may have to weed through a bit, but there is excellent information out there! smile

        Sunforged and I had some head butting recently; there may have been something else I missed.

        But I would suggest that arguments (if kept civil) are actually a source of far more knowledge than any exposition ever is.  Unfortunately, civility is often forgotten, but even with that, you can still pick up more if you ignore the rough parts.

        However - most raucus arguments tend toward advanced subjects, so probably are  less useful for newbies.

        To the OP (Original Poster; person who started the thread):  I would suggest that your best move is to start a thread with your questions.  It can be helpful to explain what you think you understand even if parts still confuse you.

          Got it.  Wow, that was quite an exchange! Probably best to leave it now and move on, but very enlightening in many ways.

      Thanks.  I'll check it out to see if I can understand the situation.

      Yeah, I was going to say, write a specific question and then you'll get answers.

      Although, as I keep telling people, you must do your own due diligence to know who and what to believe. If you're going to stay in this business get used to hours of research to figure out what's right and wrong.

      After almost 10 years of earning a very good living marketing online, I really trust no one but myself and my own conclusions.

        Ditto! As always, great advice! big_smile The best way to learn SEO is to learn it yourself, rather than have someone tell you what to do. Through trial and error, the earnings will start to come. Plus, you can never copy someone else's advice and get exactly the same results; there are too many factors in play!

      Hi ! I found when I joined recently that I found out/ learned  a lot by typing in the subject I wanted to learn about up top and hitting the search button as so many on here have excellent helpful hubs on nearly every subject !
      For anything I couldnt find or wanted up to date answers I would then ask in the relavant forum & normaly get helpful answers !
      Saves them answering same questions hundreds of times I guess !!

        Pcunixposted 13 years agoin reply to this

        And when you have found one, look at the stuff on the right side - related hubs and the tags.  The tags can work a bit like Google's Wonder Wheel to help you get to what you really want.

          If the purpose of this section was for sharing information, don't you think that's  should be done here. Yes most of you have a valid point that we can find information else where, then the  purpose of this section in the forum becomes meaningless. As I had stated earlier so much of information is available but lost in all the  disruption.  Newbies like me get totally confused at the end of the thread.
          Yes if we do not consider this as a place to learn i rest my case here.
          It was a request and not meant to start another  clash here.
          Thank you  for all the advice.

      Aficionadaposted 13 years ago

      Wow. I'm back. (Back from reading that loooonnnnngggg thread.)

      Sofs, I think that one thing that can be upsetting is that some "information" gets very close to the category of opinion. 

      Some very knowledgeable Hubbers might share what they believe is the best way to do X, Y, or Z - but then someone else (also very knowledgeable) will say, "No, that's not a good way at all"; or someone else might say, "that way is okay, but here is an even better way."

      In other words, information is not solely a set of facts; it also includes value judgments by different people.  As you read through Hubs and forum posts, you will probably be able to find that certain Hubbers are great for certain types of information, just as others have said (I think in this forum, but it could have been in another one).  But that doesn't mean that each one is great for every type of information.

      If you have no online writing/marketing experience at all, you will find that there is a very large amount of detail to learn, and it doesn't all have to be learned at one time.  Some of the people who have commented here have shared a wealth of knowledge in their own Hubs and in various forum posts in the past. 

      You would probably benefit by following freecampingaussie's suggestion:  first run a search for the topic that interests you and read what you can; be sure to include the Help Center and FAQ's in your reading; then ask your specific questions in the forums.  It will be easier on you in the long run, if you take that route.

      Also, please remember that the Knowledge Exchange forum is not for newbies only (and I still consider myself to be one); but it is also a place where the very experienced can share - and even fight about - their ideas and understanding of the best ways of doing things.
