Word Counter Tool Revisions
I added a "copy to clipboard" option to make it easier to get the results. Right now the frequency report only covers single words but sometime in 2023, I'll enhance this functionality to include two words and three-word keywords frequencies in the analysis. I'll also add a download as a PDF option once I find some free time.
Counting Words in Microsoft Word
Microsoft Word has this functionality built in. It's usually visible in the bottom left corner of the doc. If not, choose "Review" from the top menu and the word count button is on the left-hand side in that top menu of choices. Does Google Docs have a Word Count Function?
You bet it does. You can find that info by selecting "Tools" from the top menu. Within the Tools dropdown, the "Word Count" option can be selected.

If you found the word counter handy then you check out the sentence counter. And maybe the meta description counter might also be of interest.
I also have other great online tools you can check out: a tool that will convert from word to html online and one tool that will go from plain text to html - you could use it, for example, to convert a plain text email to HTML.
