Citations are increasingly being counted in academia, and it is becoming increasingly common to put for example google scholar citation counts on your CV. The weird thing is that to get something like this on a webpage...
...I had to copy my citation count from my google scholar page , which means that it is probably (hopefully...) out of date when you read this.
A little research revealed that apparently it can be done using "R, scholar, ggplot2 and cron", but surely someone at google could let users do it simply by pasting some code the way it is done with youtube videos and whatever.

The fact that this yet does not exist is a bit worrying, but much more worrying is the fact that I seem to be almost the only one looking for an easy way to "embed google scholar citations" - googling this results in exactly one hit [oct 4, 2015].
