Just sitting here at my desk atm, thinking, pondering, theorizing and now "spitballing". I wonder if there would be any value to backlinking citations. At this point in my guesswork, I think the question boils down to, whether or not citations have a "set value" to Google, no matter what their backlink profile might look like, or if that value can change based on what other sites are linking to them. After that, the obvious question is whether or not this might be "risky", and whether or not it might be considered a greyhat or blackhat technique. But mostly I'd like to keep it in the theoretical if possible.
