6 Features to Master Klout

Klout is here to stay... and I admit I try and get my score higher... especially after the algorithm dropped me nearly 20 points - 70 to 50. I have got back to 62...

So I search for articles on what to do... I found this one whilst watching the Australian Open Mens Final - it's been going now over 5 hours!! Don't know who will win...
Here is the article:

The following content will teach you how to use Klout without the mention of Klout Score. Kloutis here to stay. It is not necessary to delete your Klout profile, but you may want to reconsider how your assess your social media engagement techniques based on your Klout Score.

  1. Thanks, Wayne. I have been very impressed with your Klout score improving greatly. It's helpful to get a tour of the site from someone who knows it so well.

    1. Thanks for the comments Carolyn

      I really was annoyed when my klout was KLOUTED by 20 points so have tried to find out how to get it back into the 70's. The avergae is just 20, 40 is where people take notice, and 60 + puts you in the big league [you wouldn't know I cared would you LOL]

      Thanks again

  2. I haven't reached that massive score. It was very impressive and I guess you were KLOUTEDLY addict. Well, I'm just kidding cause I do really shock a bit and who knows that you might be listed and recognize as awesome surfer.
