KVSS is the first individual English author to reach this milestone. He now turns to his other fellow runners and encourages them to them also to reach the milestone.

I tell one thing in class. Sachin Tendulkar or a Newbie, both have to play and score. Whoever scores will be on the playground and gets his score moving. Duckouts go back and sit in the pavilion.

Prestige Auto Gallery is posting interesting knols on cars. I made a comment on one of their knols.

Remove unnecessary links

I think one link Written by Alex Abramovich for Prestige Auto Gallery should be sufficient advertisement for prestige auto gallery and the other three links can be removed to make the article a genuine knol.

May be "We at Prestige Auto Gallery charge $20 and make sure this service is done properly" is an appropriate link. Other two are not redundant links and can be removed. You are writing good informative articles. You will get good benefit of articles if you desist from giving unnecessary link.

All the best.

At least 100,000 authors will join knol. Knol has to make more people aware of knol writing opportunities by attracting number of people to knol help main page.

But says only 163,000 knols are posted so far. It is not a figures that can be accepted. But we need a more reliable figure also. Knol management needs to come out with an official figure.

Author to be watched György Tausz (Hungarian)
From the last review to this review the korean number author has added 365,000 page views. Gyorgy Tausz has added 291,000. In contract ehowknol has added 101,000. Two individual authors in two different languages are racing ahead at a frentic pace. They ask other authors to look at their knol writing practices and improve them. Probably, English has plenty of articles already on various topics and for knol articles to break ahead, things are not easy. But recruiting more authors needs to be done on an urgent basis.
It is good to note that number of most viewed authors has crossed 3000. The minimum page views is 3000 for these authors. Hope this number goes up to 10,000 by the end of 2010. At least 1000 authors need to have 100,000 page views by year end. Presently 75 authors have achieved this distinction. 158 authors have crossed 50,000 page views.


The holiday is not knowledge time but enjoyment time. The page views of many authors did go down.

Knol Marathon is a spectator sport. Scores are given by spectators. Money to the participants comes from spectators. There can be sponsors for some participants.
Knol marathon has dynamic targets with identified subraces. 25,000 page views (pv), 50,000 pv, 100,000 pv are the begineers' races. 250,000 pv, 500,000 pv, 750,000 pv and 10,000,000 are advanced races. These targets keep getting extended as race progresses. The million page view target is now added as eHowKnol achieved that target and racing ahead.
Like in a marathon race, the people who finish the race at a point in time cheer for the other participants. The participants do take some rest, but their vehicles and animals keep moving in the race. It means the participation is always there, even though the actual person is sleeping on his animal or in his vehicle.
Presently the participants ahead include eHowKnol, a korean knol writer and Narayana Rao (myself). In this race everybody has an animal or a vehicle. Some are high quality animals and some are second hand vehicles. Some participants are students and some participants are professors. Some participants are cooks and some participants are kings. Like in a marathon conducted fairly, some cooks come ahead of some kings and kings have to manage their frustration.

Merry Christmas to all Knol Readers

Indian knol authors are facing the problem as by default the transliteration button is on and the posting is occuring in Hindi. I am totally troubled by this problem for two days and came to know the immediate remedy from knol help. I wrote frantic comments on a number of knols.
Brand Management

Brand management is an important part of marketing. A product made after understanding the requirements of consumer can be sold through trade channels i.e. retails shops without branding as a generic product. But manufacturers can try to brand their product among their target market and create a preference for their product among consumers. Consumers would still buy the product from the retailer but now he asking for a specific item made by specific manufacturer or a marketer. Branding, which is creating awareness among the target market people and creating a preference for the brand requires marketing investments. Companies are investing in branding because there is a return to brand investment. There are number knol authors who are trying explain branding and related issues on knol.

Knol authors are using twitter to promote your knols. Are you using all features of twitter. I am not. I have to use the ideas in the knol above. Money Power Wisdom Dr. Mani is the author. I appreciate his tips.

Knol readers are on holiday activities probably. Page views are going down drastically. That is fine. People need to enjoy spend time with their family members and friends. Web sites and documents are there anyway and they can be accessed only when they make sense and deliver some benefit.

Happy Holidaying.

Some economic knols


György Tausz  is running strong. His weekly page views are now 62,757. Probably he will be the third millionaire knoller. We have to look for other knol authors  coming out with surprise performance. The role models of knol have suddenly changed. Knol authors have to now concentrate on their work. Write men, write. Write more knols. Write more good knols. Promote them. Inform your contacts. Your knol portfolio performance is in your own hands.
손지훈 became a millionaire knoller. His page views now are 1,001,595. Congratulations. He also established a record for weekly page views 101,045.
The Brain, Thinking, and Memory by By Cheuk-Wah Wong was on the knol home page today. The knol has 5000 page views. Mr. wong is an author. His book  A General Theory of the Brain and Memory. North Charleston, South Carolina, BookSurge Publishing, 2007 is mentioned in the references. He has one more paper A brain model with the circuit to convert short-term memory into long-term memory. MEDICAL HYPOTHESES  1997; 48: 221-226. The knol and the book, the paper mentioned make the knol an interesting reading.
Some more knols on the topic of brain included by me in the knol Behavioral Sciences Knols and Knowledge - Bulletin Board



There are knols on various counties. There are knols on various states in a country also. Kerala is a state in India. The following are some knols on it.
There are still more knols on the state. They have to become popular. For each state, province or region of each country we need knols. Knol authors have initiate knols and make efforts to develop them through collaboration.


Knol Progess - Weekly Bulletin was updated. Knols in the system increased to 529,000. It is difficult to interpret this number. Does it include only full knols? Does it include comments also?
Number of top views knols has increased to 2307.
Number of most views authors has gone up to 2820. Last week this number was 2799.For the week ended 8.11.2009 the number was 2708. So around 100 new authors got added to this list. This is a good sign. Once knol management puts a page view level for satisfying the criteria of to viewed author, the number of authors fulfilling this target reflects the progress of knol.
The top three authors' page views were
Page Views Number One Author - eHowKnol - 1,071,000
Page Views Number Two Author - 손지훈 - 941,000
Page Views Number Three Author - Narayana Rao K.V.S.S. - 635,000
Within a week the number two author will reach the one million page view mark. He will be the first individual to cross one million mark.
Author to be watched György Tausz (Spanish) is still galloping in page view numbers  and reached 245,256 pv. He is likely to break into top five shortly.
Top Knol Authors - Top Knollers records performance of top knol authors.
This week
Number of authors with 100,000 page views: 68
Number of authors with 50,000 page views: 157
Authors with 50,000 page views are increasing. Still the number is too low. We have to think in terms of 1000 authors with 250,000 page views per annum. What needs to be done? Authors have to be encouraged to write more knols. Plan to write at least 100 knols. Select interesting topics. Consult your contacts about the topics of interest. Find out from search engines intersting topics. Promote your knols actively. 
Some of the names who recently entered the list are:

WISE MEN AND WISDOM was recently updated by P.V. Ariel. Wisdom - Research Papers and Articles indicates some articles in the main stream research on the concept of wisdom. Sajid Khan describes himself as wisdom coach and has his own thoughts on the concept. He is resonsible for making many on knol aware of the concept of wisdom. He has many knols to explain his way thinking on the issue.
We have Larry Langdon who also wrote on wisdom - WISDOM FOR TODAY. There is a knol distinguising between knowledge and wisdom - Knowledge & Wisdom.
Knol directory has a main category Wise Persons
The specific subdirectories available are Abraham Lincoln , Dalai Lama, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ, Karl Marx, M. Gandhi,  Mohammed,The Prophet, Sankaracharya, and Veda Vyasa.
Knol visitors enjoy the writings of knol authors on wisdom. You will become wiser.


As the commentator for knol, I wish knol success all the time. I do keep reading negative comments about knol in various web pages, but wherever, there is an opportunity for writing a comment, I write my positive views about knol. Knol provided a wiki based collaborative article writing platform to the society. There are many around the world who have something to share, but do not have the means. Knol provided that means and some are using the platform. Still many are not aware of it and once they become aware of it they will join the crowd.
Knol is a collaborative platform. Each author should welcome others to contribute to his articles and write comments on his knol. But unfortunately there are some exclusive authors who feel they are losing their readers to other authors, if they allow contributions or comments. They remove the contributions, erase comments and even rebuke the contributing authors.
But then a large majority of people live in this world with faith that something better can exist between persons in this world than the combative and manipulative exchanges some persons initiate that threaten to destroy us today itself.
Mainstream Academic Research is nice author name to have. Knol is already having articles from main stream academic researchers. Also we have Sajid Khan whose claims his output to be is layman's research. Mainstream academic research has so far published six knols. In all of them, in summaries, main stream academic research is mentioned for various lines of thinking.

There is a big scope for writing knols on history of USA. US knol authors have to notice it. Knol authors have to make knol a comprehensive sources for knowledge in various subjects.
