I'm opening this discussion for us to have a guide to help KARA for this comeback:
: 카라 : KARA
: 숙녀가 못 돼 : Can't Be A Lady (Damaged Lady)
: 둘 중에 하나 : Runaway
First two are no brainers:
#1 - Buy the album (!!!) If you plan to buy via YesAsia, please use Karaholic's link. It would also be nice if you refrain from sharing download links for the whole album. Check to see if the sales will add to Hanteo (YesAsia and GMarket does). That's quite important. Physical sales may not have a big bearing on the Music Shows, but it does earn more for KARA and DSP.
#2 - Watch the MV on Youtube - create a playlist (F5, Replay, Youtuberepeaters DO NOT WORK). Refresh your browser cache after about 50 repeats. Clear/Remove from your YT Watch History. Also watch it thru iMBC and Gaon. If you have a blog, add this to the top. It will autoplay the video for every visitor. It might be annoying so don't hide it so that visitors can pause the vid.

#3 - Vote! - I know, we're one of the laziest fandom in terms of voting. But if they lose because of the lack of votes, we have no one to blame but ourselves and we don't want that, do we? Let's make our votes count on the charts that matter.
SMS Voting is counted per phone number, so it really doesn't cost much for that one SMS to M!Countdown (text "카라" to +82-2-2566) and one SMS to MuCore (text "KARA" to +82-2-0505) and one SMS to Inkigayo (text "카라" to +82-2-1245).

It will also help if we unanimously search at certain times (i.e. after a music show performance, after a tv guesting,

If you want to be lazy, use this site and have it cycle for 301-400 secs (That's roughly every 5 mins, but it's nice to not set it too exact lest you be tagged as spam).
#5 - Build the hype on SNS (Twitter, FB, me2day, IG) - use the tags #KARA #카라 #숙녀가못돼
Twitter: Do not use a tag after another (ie I like #KARA #숙녀가못돼) because it'll be considered a spam. Instead write words in between (ie I love #KARA and their latest song #숙녀가못돼 is the best).
Gaon Social Chart: Sign up to Gaon and add points to KARA's Social Chart (tutorial and tips from another site).
me2day: Make sure to click the me2 for all KARA official me2day post. Let it make it to the top stories.
FB: Follow KARA's official FB page. Like their posts. FB now has hashtags, use it.
But after this, what else can we do? Please add what you know we can do to help.
(Unsure - if anyone can verify please do)
Streaming Music Online (the 1 minute sample) every hour for Digital Streaming points - some say it adds to the digital streaming, some say it doesn't. It doesn't take much of your time, so it wouldn't hurt to do this. Clear cache before/after doing this for the hour.
Bugs | Melon | Olleh Music | MNet | Soribada | Daum | Monkey3
Korean proxy sites: list 1 list 2 - some say to use a Korean proxy to make the streaming count. I've read somewhere that if you stream on Naver with a foreign IP, it'll be a deduction instead of adding to the points.
This Streaming on Bugs using Facebook acct tutorial shows you need to change your IP. And if you do it this way, the streaming will definitely count. But it's 1 FB account for a 1-day pass, so use it wisely. I'd say use it for CBAL than Runaway.
