You will find out which option to use to find a word count for a multi-page website.
Your website is an integral part of your business. Eventually, you will need to have your website translated for an international audience. When the time comes, knowing the word count of your website will be crucial to get started.
If your website is built using WordPress, there are special plugins designed to count the number of words of the entire site, such as WPML. However, if the website is not using WordPress and it comprises multiple pages, posts, and titles, getting an accurate word count is not always that easy.
To determine the word count for plain text, you can use the Word count function in Microsoft Word or use the online software available at wordcounter.net. Simply copy – paste the needed text, et voilà!
On the contrary, if it is a website with multiple pages, posts, and titles, these options won’t be enough.
On the Internet, you can find numerous tools to download, but they are usually paid software. The free versions only offer to count the words of one URL at each instance, but we need to get this done for an entire site.
On further searching, we can find other tools, but they seem to have low credibility or are somewhat complicated to install.
InSite 5 by inspyder.com is a good option, and can work with small websites—it would count words on up to 50 pages. However, if you plan to use it for larger websites, it has a one-time fee of $59.95 USD, after which you will have unlimited access. In addition to providing a word count, it also includes a spell checker, SEO analysis package, and broken links reports.
What we like the most about this tool is its simplicity to use, even for inexperienced users.
The only drawback is that it only supports Windows OS. Although, MacOS users can always use BootCamp virtual machine to run WindowsOS-based programs on MacOS.
