What is Word Count version 2.0?Wordcount 2.0 is a more advanced word count tool than what you might find on other word counter websites on the internet.
Not only do you get a accurate word count for all your text, you will get character count and the frequency of the most common words in your text. The frequency calculator will come in very handy if you are trying to determine the keyword density in your text document.
What is excluded in the word count?HTML tags are not included in the word count.
Is any text stored for data mining purposes?NO, nothing is ever stored. Any text you enter in the textbox is destroyed the moment it is analyzed.
What is the "Grab from Webpage" option?The "Grab from Webpage" option allows you to enter the url of a specific webpage to get its word count. As usual, all HTML tags will be stripped.
Do you support document uploads?Yes, you can upload pdf files using the button located at the top right of this page. Please be aware that some PDF files are difficult to read so you may not get an accurate word count but go ahead and give it a try anyway.
Do you exclude any words in the frequency calculator?Yes, common english words are ignored. These are known as "stop words". These words are only excluded in the frequency count and NOT in the word count. The word density percentage however is calculated with these words included. Currently, the following words are ignored:
your, you, yet, would, with, will, why, whom, who, while, which, where, when, what, were, we, was, wants, us, twas, too, to, tis, this, they, these, there, then, them, their, the, that, than, some, so, since, should, she, says, say, said, rather, own, our, other, or, only, on, often, off, of, not, nor, no, neither, my, must, most, might, me, may, likely, like, let, least, just, its, it, is, into, in, if, i, however, how, his, him, hers, her, he, have, has, had, got, get, from, for, every, ever, else, either, does, do, did, dear, could, cannot, can, by, but, been, because, be, at, as, are, any, and, an, among, am, also, almost, all, after, across, about, able, a.
Additionally, just numbers are also ignored i.e "442334232". This is not an exhaustive list. More words will be added in the near future. Watch this space.
