Try Our Free “Word Count Tool”:

If you’re trying to figure out how many words you have in a block of text, then you’ve come to the right place. Just enter your text below, and click “Count Them!” A pop-up will appear with the answer.

This website also has tools for counting characters, and teaching you how to create your own “counter” widgets if you choose.

Believe it or not, creating a tool like the one above isn’t nearly as difficult as you might think. I created this website a few weeks after learning basic programming. This is my little place to post simple projects for free so others can save time with simple code snippets.

You can learn which language to use when building your counter, look over our different coding examples and hints, and find other widgets and tools we’ve included as well.

Over time, I’ll be updating this website with more useful scripts and possibly downloads, whether word counters, character counters, spell checks, or other tools. Make sure to check back!
