Knowing the word count of a text can be important. For example, if an author has to write a minimum or maximum amount of words for an article, essay, report, story, book, paper, etc. The word and character limit often happens in many websites e.g. Twitter: 140, SMS: 160, Title tag in HTML: only display about 70 characters, Meta descriptions in HTML: Only about first 160 characters are displayed in Google search results, Google Play Store App Name: 30 characters, and so on. This Word Counter Tool will help to make sure its word count reaches a specific requirement or stays within a certain limit. To start, simply write or paste the text into the text area. When you have finished, click on Count button under the text area, and watch the results appear immediately.
