AI - WHERE DO I BEGIN?

Aside from Hubs, you could start with Then you could read all my posts and training on ChatGPT by clicking on the magnifying glass icon in the WA menu and searching "Phil1944 ChatGPT".

There are plenty of ideas there.

Copied to @mick1976.
Thanks for the reminder Phil. I forgot to mention your training.

You are most welcome, Richard.

Short answer: Hubs :)

Hi Mick
That's a big question, that warrants a big answer, but I'll try to simplify the answer.

There are hundreds of AI tools available, the most accessible are probably ChatGPT from a company called OpenAI. BING from Microsoft or Bard from Google.

(I've been using AI for about 30 months now. I am aware of course that WA is currently trying to leap ahead of others by turning some of its functions into AI based tools, especially through its Hubs initiative, but I haven't found time to get into that yet.)

All AI tools work in similar ways... you simply ask your chosen AI tool to respond to a request, either through text or voice, and AI answers back.
The questions that you ask AI tools are known as Prompts and the quality of the response you get is dependent on the quality of the prompt you use.

With a little experimenting you will find that the more detail you are able to provide to AI tools, the more apt its response is likely to be. Be aware that most AI tools will be creative if they can't find an appropriate answer, so with most tools its important to check any facts presented.

This sounds like an uphill climb, but let me assure you, the learning curve is well worth the effort.

(Many tools make pre-emptive assumptions about a users requirements and deliver workflows that can be very helpful, especially for beginners.)

So you get started by trying out one of the tools in the knowledge that "Garbage In, Garbage Out" ( GIGO) prevails.

If you need more info, feel free to ask more questions.

GIGO is KEY with AI (and anything else), Richard! 😎

@mick1976. There are no Plugins. At least, I do not think so.

If you meant writing articles with AI, then the best place to start is with the information that Kyle posted in his articles about AI.

Start here.. Then here... Kyle did a good job explaining ...

Go to the Hubbs tab on the top left menu. Kyle has made video lessons on how to use it! Outside of Wealthy Affiliate, There are tons of choices. My preference has been ChatGPT 4, which is a paid subscription of $20/month.

It's time to change live chat. Certain members have turned it into an extension of their Facebook page. Communicating with others not related to WA at all. Just a lot of BS g

Hi - I think everybody who uses Live Chat on a regular basis is well aware that WA rankings are of no consequence, and that is not their reason for being there. I wonder why you are concerned about your own rankings and that you have not been "rewarded" for your posts?

I think there may be something wrong with your settings anyway. There is no doubt that you offer helpful advice when I have seen you in Live Chat, but typically you answer questions that were asked hours previously, and the members have already left. This is not a criticism, just an observation.

I'm not concerned about my ranking because it doesn't reflect a person's knowledge in internet marketing etc. It is misleading to the new members who just might think somebody knows something because they have a nice ranking. I think it should be done away with if it is not important like they say.

You're not the first to point that out. My system is up to date so I think WA is to blame. I have been in the middle of a conversation and been dropped here a few times. It only occurs on WA. I only get on live chat to help answer any questions. It is not social hour for me. I have a life outside WA.

While I do like the idea of tabbed areas for things like support, questions and answers I am a bit fond of the simplicity of its current form also.

I usually sit on chat and if I see a conversation I can add to, I chime in.

Thanks for the ideas!

This was a question I put to Kyle but I guess he was too busy! I will spend my time better elsewhere!

Live Chat is what helps bring the community together, forging friendships and relationships. It is a friendly environment to be in and I have never seen a question go unanswered.

If you don't like the conversation going on, there's no need to be there. If you need help, you can ask & typically a member will respond to you very quickly. If the fast pace of live chat is too much for you, you can leverage the questions & answers in classrooms, etc.

Live chat works just fine.

I don't. Better time spent working on my sites that listening to BS.

Awesome, glad to hear the issue is resolved
