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.
