I have connected my GPU miner to solo ck pool, but i cannot see my stats when i navigate to the address. It says 404 not found.
http://solo.ckpool.org/users/1AHrgz7AYHwtScn7VVQBDfuRyzBb9kDazp

But in my cg miner i see the connection is successful and Im already mining with a small hash power 30 Mh/s. Any reason for this guys?
Please don't do that. You are only wasting power and shortening the life of your GPU trying to mine bitcoin. You don't see any stats because your hashrate is so low that you're not even registering on the pool since you haven't even submitted a single share. If you want to do fun very low hashrate "lottery" solo mining, find yourself a cheap usb stick and use that instead.

Why do 333Mhs at 2.5 Watt's when you can use 300 Watt's for 30 Mhs.  Where's the fun in that? Smiley

Well I could send you my Bitcoin address if you like.  But you should probably use yours.  So I would assume you have downloaded and installed the Bitcoin client and downloaded the blockchain.  So you should have a Bitcoin address.  You definitely want to have your own wallet and receiving addresses before you start mining.

Also two S9's won't find a solo block very often, so be aware of that.

Yes point to that address and no, you do not need to download the blockchain, but you do need to have a wallet of some kind (obviously.)

I've never heard of it which is a real concern. Don't use anything that doesn't have a reputation out there. Do some research, consider things like electrum, mycellium, greenaddress, exodus for software wallets and trezor and ledger nano for hardware wallets etc...

You should download electrum wallet.
You should hold your own private keys.

When you use online services like this you are handing full control of your money over to a 3rd party as they hold all the data that you should be.

https://electrum.org/

This is a very good wallet to use it is quite simple to use and setup.

Make sure and backup your seed and your wallet.dat file which can be found in the %appdata% folder in windows.

There is a guide here if you are unsure how to set it up or just want more info.

You probably want to set the 2nd slot to "solo.ckpool.org" instead of having both slots 1 & 2 set at "de.ckpool.org. If the de link goes down, with both set to de, then both will be down and it will go right to 3. Wink

Leave everything as it is, except put "solo" in place of "de" on the middle slot, and you're good to go. Wink

A block is found when a share's difficulty is higher than the network difficulty. 
"Best Share" is just a number to see how close you've come to finding a block. It's all completely random

So your share would have to more than the number below to "solve" a block.

A valid block comes from a share that is higher than the network difficulty.
The "best share" is the highest difficulty share one has submitted.
Sadly, you can't "build on" a best share or "go up from there"; like Atrax said, it's all completely random.
Basically it's just there to make us feel good (or in the rare instance of it being super high with no block, letting us know if something is wrong). Wink
