How to Manage Your Klout Topics

By Andrea Updyke

To view and manage your Klout topics, point your browser to and select Profile from the drop-down that appears when you click your name in the upper-right corner of the screen.

How to find your Klout topics

Your top three topics of influence are located in the sidebar on the left of your screen when viewing your Klout profile page. However, you can have up to 20 topics of influence. To view all of your topics of influence, click the See More link next to your topics list. A pop up-window appears.


How to delete your Klout topics

If you want to delete topics in your list, you can do so easily:

  1. Open your topics list by clicking the See More link located to the right of your top three topics.

  2. Click the Manage Your Topics link that appears in the top-right corner.


  3. Delete a topic by mousing over a topic and clicking the x that appears.

  4. Click Save to save your changes.

How to add more Klout topics

You can add topics to your topics list as well. This is particularly helpful if you are new to social media or are creating a new account or branching out.

After a topic is created, other influencers see it as an option to give you +K. The more +K you get on a topic, the higher on the list it appears.

To add a topic to Klout, do the following:

  1. Open your topics list by clicking the See More link next to your top three topics in the sidebar.

  2. Click Manage Your Topics in the upper-right corner of the window that appears.

  3. Choose a topic from the list of suggestions or add your own by clicking Add a Topic at the top of the window.


  4. Type the new topic into the field provided and click add.

  5. Drag the topic from the list of Potential Topics to the column titled Profile Topics.

  6. Click Save.

Only ten topics will be visible in your public profile. However, you can keep more topics in your Potential Topics column and rotate them out if your interests change.
