    Citation Flow is a number of predicting how influential a URL might be based on how many sites link to it. Trust Flow is a number predicting how trustworthy a page is based on how trustworthy sites tend to link to trustworthy neighbors.

    Citation flow (CF) pertains to how popular a link on a website is without considering the quality of such links. Although they are not quite often qualitative, these links have a high CF. If there a lot of links pointing to a website the chances of being more influential are higher, leading to a higher CF.

    The Citation Flow (CF) is an indicator for the popularity of the page, the total number of links pointing to it with different IP. The higher your page will have links pointing to it plus the CF will be. The Citation Flow does not reflect the quality of links but quantity.

    Citation Flow refers to the number of backlinks your site got.

    Citation flow refers to the popularity of a link in a site without considering the quality of these links.

    So if a website with high CF flow points to your website, your CF should get a boost.
