Sherryl: Thanks for the information! Do you measure the PageRank and Alexa ranking of your site(s)?

Sherryl Perry: Thanks for the explanation of disavow. What could that dating site gain from spam linking to your site?

I take Klout with a grain (teaspoon?) of salt, but it could be an indicator to use in certain situations. That's why it is interesting to see that Bing is integrating it in its search engine.

It's actually more of a social site but the dating part of it is what stood out the most to me. The site is EvolveStar.com and it has absolutely nothing to do with what I blog about.

I'll have to take a look at Bing and Klout more closely. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

What's disavow? What's your take on that Bing has included the Klout score in searches?

The disavow tool lets you submit a URL of a site that links to you that you don't want to be associated with. Google recommends that you only use it after you've contacted the site webmaster. You have to create and upload a text file. I've done it before for about 5 sites. One is a dating site that appears to have over 1,200 links to my site. They deny it but it still shows up in GWT. (The number of links have dropped by about 300 though. So, it may be working.)

I honestly have reached the point where I don't pay attention to Klout. It is what it is to me. What are your thoughts about Klout?

I haven't used Bing Webmaster tool yet. I have to check it out.

Lyceum,

You'll find that Bing's Webmaster Tools are somewhat similar to Google's. You should get some additional SEO traffic from them and they tend to introduce different tools at time. Google does not have a way to connect our social pages yet and Bing was the company that first introduced the disavow too.
