WP Word Count


WP Word Count tells you exactly how many words you’ve written on your site with statistics by month and author.

New in Version 3.2.0: Reading Time
WP Word Count now comes with built in reading time statistics for each post and page of your site. Find out how many hours of content you’ve written or let readers know how long your articles are. You can include reading time at the top of each of your posts automatically or use a shortcode.


  • Quickly see how many posts and pages you’ve created and how many total words they add up to.
  • View and display estimated reading times for each piece of content on your site.
  • Support for custom post types so you can monitor word counts from content created by your themes and plugins.
  • View your writing output for each month broken down by post type.
  • See all of your site author’s word counts with breakdowns by post type.


Upgrade to WP Word Count Pro and get additional features to help you understand and analyze the amount of content you are producing for your site:

  • Control which post types and statuses you see in your statistics through custom “Settings” options.
  • Get detailed breakdowns of your monthly writing output by day, author, post type, category, tag and more.
  • View individual author details with information beyond just word count totals.
  • See expanded post details with revision history, site rankings and more.
  • Motivate yourself with the built-in achievement system to write more and increase your site’s content.
  • View charts and graphs for better data visualization and understanding.

How do the WP Word Count Shortcodes work?

There are two shortcodes available:

  • [wp-word-count] will display the number of words on any page or post.
  • [wp-word-count-reading-time] will display the reading time of words on any page or post.

Every WP Word Count shortcode can be extended with “before” and “after” attributes to add text or HTML before and after the result.

Example: [wp-word-count before=”This post has” after=” total words.”]

Hi, I'm so impressed with this amazing plugin. However, for Chinese bloggers we don't separate our words with spaces. What we call the word number usually means the character number. So could you please add a feature that can calculate the character numbers (ignore space and punctuation) of all my post? Much thx!

We use CornerStone / Pro from Themeco and it seems like the process is having a hard time finding out what is a word and what is not. WP Word Count's result is ~1500 words for a ~4500 words page. We manually compared to make sure.
