It's when other people talk about your content and link to it. For example, suppose a whole bunch of people on different sites all started saying "According to an article in the New York Times, ..." and they were all linking back to the article.

Citations are defined as “mentions” of your business name and address on other webpages, even if there is no link to your website. An example of a citation might be an online yellow pages directory where your business is listed, but not linked to.

Citation helps a lot in local listing of a website.

Citations are particularly important in less-competitive niches (like plumbing or electrical) where many service providers don’t have websites themselves. Without much other information, the search engines rely heavily on whatever information they can find.

Never heard this term before. Thanks guys for sharing the information about Citations.

If you are able to get Citations that means your site is at the top according to content , yes it definatly impect good for your site
