    Measuring Social Media Influence

    There are a number of tools in development for measuring social media influence, including:


    Klout seems to be the leader, but still has a lot of room for both improvement and adoption.

    Because Klout is the leader, more people seem to be putting work into gaming their Klout scores. I bumped my own Klout from 39 to 61 with a few days of heavy tweeting. The official explanation of the Klout score is here: Klout Score.

    Most Klout optimization seems to be the same as general Twitter optimization:
    • Tweet more
    • Get more followers
    • Get more mentions
    • Get more retweets


    I've figured out a few tricks for doing those things over the last week, but that is a topic for another thread.

    Got Klout?

    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    I've been paying attention a bit more to my klout score, especially since I've been able to raise it consistently over the past month or so.
    Need links? Try AuthorLinks where you can buy or sell links based on Authorship and Klout score. Check out my blog or like me on Facebook.

    Klout is going to change the algorithm for Klout score calculation next week.

    I'm sure there will be many happy and unhappy people.

    Guess what?
    I could care less about klout....

    Just like the other tools out there to measure how good you are doing on twitter, it means nothing in the real world.

    But if it keeps you happy, enjoy.
