About Word Counter

Word Counter is an easy to use online tool for counting characters, words, sentences, paragraphs and pages in real time. To begin, start typing directly into the text area above, or copy and paste in text from anywhere else. The sidebar on the right will update in real-time with your current character and word counts, and most frequently used keywords. Select Top, 1x, 2x or 3x to toggle between keyword word groups.

You can also use Word Counter to track your text length against common web standards like Twitter's tweet character count (140), Google's meta description (160), and Facebook's average post display length (~250). If your text is longer than 300 characters the sidebar will update with the number of sentences, paragraphs and pages instead; useful metrics for blog posts, articles, essays, dissertations, and other long form content.

We've compiled some great tutorials on how to count words in common programs like Google Docs and MS Word, and put together articles addressing some of the most common questions asked about word counts. These include topics like "How Many Pages is 1000 Words?", "How Many Words per Page?" and "How Many Words are in a Novel?".
