Klout – Kill the Dead
The Klout race.
For the past few months I’ve been paying very close attention to my own social media habits and how it affects my clout score. I was able to bring my score of 62 up to a steady 67 and as high as 69 (hey oh).
Most of this process simply involved being consistent at posting and posting content that would get interaction, likes, shared, comments etc.
Today – my Klout teeters around 67 to 68 and I’m going to try something I’ve just come across. No it’s not oil pulling.. but similarly I’m going to remove the bacteria from my twitter account. After reading an article on linked in (a site I’ve been trying to increase my Klout’s score impact from) it seems to imply that removing dead accounts, spambots and non english accounts will raise your score.
I’m skeptical that this would really affect my score, maybe someone with a much lower score would see the impact from that but I figured I’d give it a shot and see what happens.
So I’m doing this now and we’ll check back in a day or two and see if there is a notable change.
Day one update: This morning I saw a .08 upswing. This might be a little too soon to really confirm my guess that this tactic wouldn’t do much.
A few weeks in: Looking back on this, I do not believe deleting the dead accounts had any real effect on my score.
Onward to the next Klout experiment.http://www.samproof.tv/2014/04/19/klout-kill-dead/https://i2.wp.com/www.samproof.tv/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Klout-Kred-Influence.png?fit=658%2C370https://i2.wp.com/www.samproof.tv/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Klout-Kred-Influence.png?fit=150%2C84Lifesocial mediaklout,klout score,linked in,social mediaThe Klout race.
