If you're wanting to get involved in SEM or the like, I highly suggest you visit the Webmaster Radio chat room. If you're a noob, I suggest you sit back and watch, don't just jump in and start asking people to fix your website.

If you've got mIRC, set the logging to save to a local text file. Then when you're away, simply change your nick (usually to something like nick_ or nick_away) and minimize your screen. That way people won't try to talk to you, and you'll log any conversations that might interest you.

And with people like SeGuru, ShoeMoney, DaveN (and plenty more) hanging out, you never know when one of those sweet nuggets of information just may pop up.
