Klout announced an extension of its partnership with Bing today with the launch of Klout-verified snapshots in Bing search results.

Klout's Paul Kim and Genevieve Lydstone explain, "From the beginning of Klout, we’ve been focused on helping people better understand and be recognized for how they influence others. Through our ongoing partnership with Bing, we’ve been able to integrate search results into the Klout Score as a direct indicator of real world influence. Today we’re excited to announce that we’re taking another step in connecting search with influence by introducing Klout-verified Snapshots on Bing."

"Search is one of the most common ways that information about you is discovered by other people," the add. "Snapshots on Bing enable anyone who signs up on Klout to verify and manage how they appear in Bing search results, based on their public social network profiles. You’ll now be able to easily share your professional accomplishments and highlights, as well as your most influential moments on Instagram and Twitter, when people search for you on Bing."

Here's what it looks like:

It shows your public LinkedIn summary, links to your connected social profiles, displays your Klout score and influential topics, and two of your most influential public moments from Twitter over the past 7 days and Instagram over the past 90 days.

If you're a Klout user, and you want to get it set up, you can do so here.

This is the latest product of Bing's investment in Klout, which was announced a little over a year ago. In July, Bing searches began factoring into Klout score.
