Google Scholar lists how many times an article has been cited based on similar citations from journals they index, which does not include citations in journals that they do not index.
Discovery Search shows citation counts from Scopus and CrossRef, which also do not include all journals, but is comprehensive for these kinds of measurements, under the PlumX Metrics link. If a search results contains an article from one of the journals tracked by Scopus, it will list the times cited count and will link to the article's record in Scopus, which then lists each of these citing articles. Note that we do not have a subscription to Scopus. so most functionaility in that database ill not work.
Discovery Search/PlumX Metrics will also list some Altmetrics which is tracks some of the more non-traditional counts such as downloads, mentions in social media or viewing.
