Symbols and Words Counting

At times, it becomes very handy to have a word counter tool which can give anyone an idea or an overview of the content he or she has written and how many words or even characters it already contains. Such needs may arise when a person works in the field of academics, who must write research papers, articles, journals or assignments, as a student. Normally a writer is limited by a word count by the target instance rules or acceptance guidance of some magazine or internet blog.

So, what do you do if you have bumped into the requirements to limit the amount of the text inside your article and you must follow the strict rules prompted by your customer? How can you get the information on how many paragraphs or words have you already typed and what is the common character count of the already prepared article on the competitor’s web blog?

Our character and word counter will help you on that!

Let’s not ignore, the daily articles pop up on the internet every other minute, most of them are limited by the amount of characters, people are bounded by symbols limits and should calculate words while writing legal proceedings, advertisement columns and media articles. Each day writers and bloggers fight for their visitors by following some unpredictable SEO rules. No doubt, the tools like ours are highly required on the market on the daily basis.

This statistic provided by our service gives an overview of the text quality, the frequency of the words that you have written in a passage along with a combination of characters and punctuation. In addition, our words and characters counting service, doesn’t only limit itself to calculate the number of letters or words you have just typed, but also analyzes the sentence counts, lines, numerals, punctuation count (either digits or specific signs) and event gives you an overview of how much time do you need to read the all written through.

Our analyzer provides an option to see the occurrences of phrases, characters and words count density. The statistic shows the results in % of the text coverage and gives the user an option to control the minimum and maximum letters and the words amount to be displayed on the tool. The catch is to alert the writers when they reach the limit.

I now perceive, it was not altogether your
brother's evil disposition made him seek his death;
but a provoking merit, set a-work by a reprovable
badness in himself.
(W. Shakespeare, King Lear)

Being the copywriter, I would expect from any tool which calculates the words and characters information - 28 words in common (with 161 characters in the summary), but at the same time being more SEO-oriented, I would be more interested in the weight of the whole text excluding stop words which will lead me to 13 words in the summary (The highlighted words are taken from the English stop words list).

The words counter service allows to exclude commonly used stop-words from the analysis by our search engine to make the statistics and reports more precise and concrete.
