Google Scholar Launches Citation Tracker

Google Scholar launched a service yesterday that will allow scholars to track their citation metrics.  The tool will allow authors to create and share profiles and automatically add their new articles to the profile.  Authors can choose to include the citation metrics in their profile as well, giving searchers information about how often an author has been cited.  The service is in limited release as of now, but you can try to be an early adopter by creating a profile.

Information from the Google Scholar Blog here and more information about how to create a profile (and other FAQs) here.
