The article explains that how much you owe versus how much credit has been extended to you is the second most important factor in determining your score.

Once you consistently go over 20 percent, you begin to ding your credit score.

If you’re lucky, you hardly ever carry over a balance on your credit card to begin with, but in case you’ve accrued a bit of debt, this is information worth knowing. Check out the link for the other credit tips, then watch our video covering ten credit score myths dispelled.
