Google Scholar Citation Profile helps you track the citations of all your publications in one place. It also includes links to citing articles. You can import/export citations from Google Scholar into ORCID using BibTex (.bib files).
MyResearcherID, through Web of Science (Web of Knowledge), assigns unique researcher IDs that persist regardless of institutional affiliation, allowing for more easy tracking. Web of Science publications can also be exported into ORCID by associating the two accounts.
