7 Free Word Count Tools

Even though most word processing and blogging platforms contain word count tools, the truth is, they’re not always accurate or convenient. In a business where every word counts, being able to get it right makes all the difference.  Today, I’d like to share a few free word count tracking tools with you. Hopefully they’ll make your life a little easier.

  1. WordCounterTool.com – Not only gives you your word and character count, but you can also take a typing test to find out your WPM.
  2. Wisgary – I love this word count tool because it not only counts words, it counts characters, lines and characters without spaces.
  3. Word Count Tool: It couldn’t be easier, simply cut and paste your text and the app will do the rest.
  4. Scribendi – Another simple copy and paste. Counts words and nothing else.
  5. Word and Character Count Tools: I’m not sure why there are word count and character count tools at a site for Internet calling plans, but there are and they do just fine. Go figure.
  6. TranslatorBase.com – Another tool that does more than count words. This word counter also tracks pages, lines, and characters both with and without spaces.
  7. Javascript Kit – Offers a word count tracking tool plus the code to put the tool on your own site! I’m even trying it at FWJ.
