    With the new rule of having 50 words per eBay/ Amazon product  it would be helpful if each text capsule had a word counter of its own. Just a thought!

      I think that would just lead to confusion among the hubbers. You don't need to put 50 words directly written about each product. Your hub just needs to contain the equivalent of 50 words per each product displayed. So if you want to display 10 Amazon products at the end of your hub, you just need to make sure that your hub is 500 words long, and we already have a word count in place for the whole hub.

        I could have missed something, but the word counter was under the Hub's 'statistics' when I last looked, and that often takes quite a long while to gather statistics, like w/c or any at all.

    The word count total already satisfies this need.

    I think it's a great idea. I'm getting tired of the continued voicing of the concern that things would confuse other hubbers. Maybe more people should learn to read and study the learning center.

    The word count is available in my wordpress sites and I do find it very useful. Sometimes it's nice to pace your writing and it helps to know how many words are working their way down the page.

    Yes, I can live without it. I pretty much know what 50 words look like after the past few day. But sometimes I want to divide the copy in blocks of say 200 and it is helpful.

      You are right about that, Nelle! I take back what I said. smilesmile

    If you really want to break your text down into chunks (and have a word count for each chunk), then one solution is to copy & paste the relevant text into Word, and do a word count with the text still highlighted.

    Or just write your hub in Word first, and do your word count as you go along.

    There are a lot of ways to accomplish the task. A word counter in the text box is by far the easiest. I was really just objecting to the fact that someone was suggesting that we shouldn't have it simply because it might confuse people.
