  1. Use sitemaps to count words

    Many sites have sitemaps that points at the pages of a website. It would be great if this service could use the sitemaps to know which pages to scan for words. This would resolve problems currently present for duplicate pages being counted etc.

    And example sitemap is located at http://www.themodernnomad.com/sitemap.xml

  2. Allow Excel format download of the results

    This would allow quick creation of the offer and manual adjustment for duplicated content.

  3. Feature to recongnise duplicate pages / links

    First: I love this service especially since I am a MacUser and the only alternatives I found so far are offline .exes. Thanks Ryan.

    What would make it really perfect would be if it would recognise duplicate pages not just duplicate words. Sometimes the content is the same on the home page - direct link and then on an .index page. Or there is similar text with different pictures.

    Most translators don't want to discount similar phrases because you still need to study and adapt for the context, but if the whole paragraph or page is the same then one…

  4. Allow counting subpages only

    Asking for a count of eg. http://www.lonelyplanet.com/finland/helsinki follows all sorts of random links throughout the domain, which makes the results useless. Being able to restrict it to subpages only (URLs starting with /finland/helsinki) would be much more useful. See also: http://www.webwordcount.com/count.php?u=Xyffba3j#

  5. show the percentage of words that have been counted

    When you enter a website, it takes quite a long time to load. This would be fine, if we at least had an idea of how long it would take or how many percent of the website text will be analyzed. The little round loading thing just keeps going round and round.

  6. Allow user to exclude a page from the sum

    If I have to check duplications manually then please allow me to tick a check box and exclude a page from the total.

  8. Can't get final report

    Greetings,

    While in the past I have received reports from web word count with over 2,500 web pages of text, I can no longer get the tool to send me the report. At the 50 page mark, when it prompts the user to ask for a report, the counting seems to stall. This tool is really valuable to my master's research, so if there's anything you can suggest I am all ears. I am currently trying to extract the text from all of the pages on this website (which I don't endorse, but wish to study as part of my…

  9. Change the name on the email account that sends the reports

    It currently reads 'WebWorldCount'.

    Great site, thanks.

  12. Fix wordsstucktogether in the menu items of a page

    I've come across what seems to be a bug while counting the words for www.rasa-lila.nl. The site has a menu nav in the footer, and all the links from that menu end up stuck together, where there should be at least a space between each menu item to enable words to be properly counted. Site says it's using a Thematic theme. Sample page: www.rasa-lila.nl/website/lessen/danslessen/zumba/ Thanks for the great tool!

  13. Happy to pay for service.

    We have many large websites but need this information. Certainly don't expect that for free. Happy to pay for the service to get a "pro" version for large sites. I see no option to do so.

  14. Allow sending to email addresses that contain a "+"

    like "user+wordcount@example.com". It's perfectly valid, and I won't use your service without it.

  16. Proofreader required

    Used your site to check my own website but there was a glaring spelling error on results page - the link to send to a "freind" should read "frIEnd". As it happens I am a freelance proofreader! http://www.bullet-proofreading.co.uk

  17. Awkward

    Why would you offer translation services to translators who wants to assess a website? I found that quite suspicious.
    Not sure a translator would use your website if they knew upfront that you are offering translation services as well.

  20. Site DOWN. Word count does not complete. Please fix ;-)

    Great tool, but hasn't been functioning for a while. ERROR: in select page count and ERROR: in select scan results. Counts never complete.
