    Does anyone know of any free tools for generating word counts of a website?

    i.e. one that will read all pages and give a total word count for the website?

    Have a look at Kwintessential, it appears to provide the solution you need. It tells me that there are 1,421 on the home page of Business Advice Forum. You can use it directly from their site.

    If you are looking for a download tool, try Inspyder.

    Thanks Fergal!

    Anyone else know a robot/spider that can do the wholesite or take a Google XML sitemap and do this in one go for the whole site?

    PractiCount and AnyCount are other tools that can count the number of words in a website. I'm not sure if they do it page by page or if they can count all the words in a complete site. They provide a 15 & 30 day free trials, so you could download a copy and see if they meets your requirements.

    I tried one tool (not any of the ones I've listed here) and it included words from the website HTML code but not shown on the web page, in the word count. For example it counted 108 occurrences of "px" in a webpage, even though "px" was only found in the HTML code. You might want to check that the tool you use is not doing that.
