Finding the citation count for author's work
Google Scholar Citations provides a simple way for authors to keep track of citations to their articles. You can check who is citing your publications, graph citations over time, and compute several citation metrics. Your may elect to make your profile public, so that it may appear in Google Scholar results when people search for your name, e.g., richard feynman.
Google Scholar allows an author to add groups of related articles to a profile. Citation metrics are computed and updated automatically as Google Scholar finds new citations to a given work. An author's list of articles can be set to be updated automatically or manually. (Adapted from Google)
Google Scholar is quick to set up and simple to maintain. Sign in with your google account or if you do not have one, you will need to create one to use this resource.
