    I'm trying to find the users that people would recommend that are continually providing good advise and insight. This is only for the reason of wanting to read everything they write and try to learn something.

    For example everything I've read from expertpeon is good stuff, phpbuilt also. there are others , of course, so...Who else should I follow?

    Rather than have ppl vouch for their favorite authors, how about you read a bunch of threads and make your own judgements? My opinion would not necessarily agree with the next person because our values and priorties are different. So... basing it on your own values and priorities would make the most sense...

    Look for people who have a lot of rep and thanks. A lot of times it's for giving useful information but you'll have to verify it's not for offering things up in the download section.

    Nice approach, mate!

    There was a company, Aardvark, they tried to build a question and answer search engine. Their approach was: first find expert, then find the answer. Worked like a charm, until Google bought them and closed down. :)

    Anyway, on the topic, i think you better follow -Jericho-'s advice. There are many experts here, it will be hard to name them all.

    Point is I read this forum every day, mostly from my phone so I can't see who has what for rep, posts, thanks, ect. I obviously have a decent list/memory of names that I see a lot and make note if they had something useful but I'm hoping to get input from others who might spend more time on this forum than I do

    First let me say that I obviously read everything, I'm not just looking to ONLY read from a select group of "experts" but I'm looking to go back and see some of their posts that I might have missed, simply because they replied to a topic that I didn't read. Also, obviously these are people's opinions and I can judge for myself who will be helpful for my point of view, I just want some names of people who have regularly helped you or who you have seen regularly help others. I'll spend the time to then make judgement for myself.

    Thanks again.

    Ok good point, I'll speak very broadly on what I want to Learn... How to rank a site in organic search (lol), effective ppc strategies and platforms, social media marketing to name a few.

    I have an ivy league business degree and none of it touched on Internet marketing. I'm looking for strategies to promote actual brands for different companies I've started for long term growth

    The OP's question is a lot like asking "How long is a string?"

    No it's not. Every group has experts who stand out. Who have you noticed that stands out here?

    BHW is a place where even the biggest idiot will say something profound on occasions.

    I find some go hot and cold, as the above poster mentioned scritty is currently on fire, although I can't say I had noticed him/her much until the last couple of weeks. His/her additions to the discussions on the latest update are a breath of fresh air in a sea of stupidity. And I've lost some respect for some members after reading the disinformation they're spreading re this latest update, and the noobs are just lapping it up and throwing thanks and rep round like crazy.

    So basically use your own judgement - because while we're all friends and here to help - the only person you really must trust in this game is yourself.
