Word count

    I have 2 hubs where the ads have been disabled. I wanted to see the word count in these hubs. The way I would normally do that is to click on edit and it would show up in the upper right, however, when ads are disabled, that msg. appears there instead of the word count. Is there another way to see your word count other than clicking on edit? Thanks.

      my slow witted arse would probably resort to copy pasting it into MS word and using the word count tool there, lol!

      Click on the Hub, click on 'Stats' (in between 'edit' and 'delete') and click on Hub Metrics (two tabs right of 'Total'). The very first item will say 'Word Count'. That is without using Edit.

        It worked. To steal an expression from 1991, "You're the bomb." smile

    Copy paste the contents in MS word and the word count will appear at the bottom of the page.

      It said there were only 174 words, but like 700+ characters. That seems somewhat unreliable. I don't feel certain it's correct. I don't know.

        Word is a mighty Office God. You are not allowed to call it unreliable.

        With that number of words, you could just count them?

          Haha, that was the first thing I did, but then it did indeed seem to be more than that. Plus I have to do it with another hub... now I feel lazy. Don't judge me.

        Obviously you would have way more characters than words lol.... and that 700+ characters probably includes all the space between words that's why it's that high.

          Yeah, I understand, it just seemed far more than I would have expected... it's all good though. smile

    I am not able to publish, do you understand that.  Then they said my hub would be featured, but how is that if you can't publish.  When I call the phone number and push one as it states to do, nothing happens and there is no code.  Do you have to do advertising first is that the Google Gimmick?
