    I have had a look but the only tool I found wanted me to give my email so I could be sent the full report and the other one said I had 6,000,000 pages on my site when I only have 300...:confused:
    Just want a quick way to count the words (approx.is fine - doesn't have to be exact) on a given website.

    On the given page? Or the whole site?

    I can custom code one for you if you are not behind getting the word count of Wikipedia :D The script would crash, or take ages :p

    why don't you just use a disposable email address to get the report, if you don't feel comfortable giving your regular email address to that site?

    Cheers. I want to do the whole site because I can paste pages into various checkers but I was struggling for a whole site word count tool. The suggestions below look good on first look but thank you for the offer of potentially coding a tool for me.

    If it's a WP site, I use the Yoast SEO plugin which gives me a count on each page/post and it's also very useful for SEO of course.

    If you use wordpress, GeneralStats can be used as a widget to show total words and posts and whatever else.
