How to increase your Klout score

Heard about Klout? Klout is a website and mobile app that uses social media analytics to rank its users according to online social influence via "Klout Score", which is a numerical value between 1 and 100. More your score, the more influential you are. In determining the user score, Klout measures the size of a user's social media network and correlates the content created to measure how other users interact with that content. It uses social networks like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, Blogger, Flickr, Foursquare, Google+,, Pinterest, Tumblr,, Yammer & YouTube data to measure the influence score.


If you are a blogger or active on any social media platforms specially Twitter & Facebook, then you would have noticed many at times people do ask "What's your Klout score?" In simple ways, it means "How influential are you? or What is your influence score?". Here's my Klout score. I have linked my Twitter, Facebook, Instagram & Linkedin profiles.
