KloutHeavy users of Klout would have noticed the update on the K! system and from what I have seen, the majority are not impressed. I however am neither dissatisfied but I am not overjoyed. It has been raised that people don’t love Klout, they love their scores. Of course there is a certain amount of truth to this statement, it is a vanity feature to some and it makes those with a higher score feel important and so on.

My score was 60 and after the update I “dropped” to 51. That, however is just my K! score, my true reached shot up from roughly 150 to 1769! and I only have 220 followers on Twitter that to me is an insane increase. The rest of the fields stayed at the same sort of level.

My K! score should have a huge descent on the graph, but it hasn’t. It has remained at a steady increase, in fact, I have got +2 in 10 days, which is a whole lot better than dropping 9 marks in just a few days.

A lot of Klout users are declaring the analytics scores’ end, but is it? Klout is still in its’ beta stages and this is just another update that every beta has. They have made changes to their algorithm to make their score more accurate because previously one of the biggest questions about Klout was its’ accuracy. Fingers crossed this will fix the situation.

I have always used Klout as a way to track and measure my social media efforts, and now that it is “more” accurate, I will continue to use it because it is one of few systems that takes a wide variety of social networks and measures important statistics, for example true reach and influence.

This addition to the case study is a revision on how many people have you in their Circles. The last time I measured this, the SEO Positive profile was added to 25 people, it now stands at 65 which is just over twice as much. For those that have not read the previous additions, here is part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4.

Keywords Current Position Previous Position Movement
SEO 63 74 +11
SEO UK 2 2 0
UK SEO 2 2 0
SEO Company 3 3 0
SEO Companies 2 2 0
SEO Services 1 1 0

It would seem that all of the key words, except from SEO, have acquired a sturdy position in the rankings, the term SEO has shot up quite a bit and the increase in Circles must have played a part in this.

I wanted to see the competitor’s profiles and inspect how many people have added them and the list is as follows.

Key Word Position Number of Adds into others Circles
SEO 1 695
SEO 2 1295
SEO 3 281

There is clearly a correlation that states the more people that have added you, the higher you will show. This however, is clearly not one of the only factors because second place has twice the amount as position one. It is something that I think has an effect but there are other factors that make a difference.

Twitter BirdTwitter, once easily dismissed in its early days by critics who didn’t see past users posting what they had for lunch, has become a worldwide phenomenon, and one of the most useful cornerstones of social networking.

Twitter does take some getting used to, because the postings, called tweets, are all very short, limited to 140 characters per tweet, and there are some conventions that can look odd to the uninitiated. For example, the @ sign refers to the account name, the # tag is how you can follow topics.

Tweets can keep you up to the minute with your friends, your family and the community at large. Follow a favorite celebrity, or keep an eye out on local politics or events. It’s also one of the best things for instantaneous news during big events like earthquakes — it’s like on the spot reporting from anybody who can get online or has a phone. If there’s a fire in your neighborhood, there’s a good chance someone will be tweeting information about it within minutes, and sometimes with pictures.

Beyond keeping up with what your friends are up to, Twitter can make it easy to keep updated with things beyond your social circle. Sometimes, large companies will keep an eye out for customer service issues from people who tweet about them, and can be one of the easiest ways to get problems resolved. Twitter users are often the first to know about upcoming concerts and other popular events. If there’s a local issue you need to keep up with, see if your local newspaper’s website is posting Twitter feeds from a knowledgeable reporter, who can offer real-time updates and insight that would be difficult to find anywhere else.

You can simply access the Twitter website in your browser, but there are tools such as TweetDeck or HootSuite that can make following people and topics easier, in addition to helping with your own tweets. You can read and post tweets using your computer, a tablet or your cellular phone.

If you are completely new to Twitter, simply sign up for an account, and look for some interesting people to follow, whether it’s someone you know personally, or a famous figure you would enjoy following. See who they follow, what topics they’re interested in, and soon you’ll find yourself deeply immersed in the world of Twitter. Twitter is social networking at its best, bringing the people and topics you care about to you whenever you like.
