Surely this is just a case of analyzing twitter users who mentions your url (or any url with your domain, even), and then ranking them by Klout (or just follower score)?
(This would then pick up tweets that don't use a button, too.)
Point is, that is a backend process, why should I change my site's buttons?
b) You can use any button you want. We provide simple iframe implementations for our button and a Twitter tweet button. We also give you code to attach to any js event.
For example, if I tweet about tech things, I'll get many clicks since most of my followers are techies. If I tweet about horses, ... not so many clicks and therefore I have a poorer influence for "horses".
Klout and # of followers abstract away these fine-grained details that, IMO, are critically important in determining social influence.
We thought measuring click-throughs would be more useful for startups to see who can actually get the most people to take a look at what you are doing. If you can get those influential people as your ambassadors / talking you up, your golden!
How exactly would this increase traffic to your website? I thought this was an analytic tool.
We are setting up forwarding the naked domain to a static IP that will do the http forwarding
(forgive me if I butchered the dns speak. not my domain haha)
The results on our landing page are real, updated every 15 minutes with our top 6 influencers
