& Character Counter - Online Text Tool
Count words and characters (including spaces) in real time
To create a text, it can be useful to know the exact number of
words or characters. This can be helpful for example for the exact
billing of professionally created texts or when writing blog texts
with a required minimum number of words.
In SEO, our counter helps you to design the Titles & Descriptions
of web pages in the optimal length so that they do not appear
shortened in the search results. Find more information in section

Simply enter or insert the text to be evaluated
in the text field below.
The exact number of words, characters &
spaces will be displayed in real-time on the right.
SEO: Characters for titles & descriptions
of a website
Title (maximum 62 characters):
The title is the figurehead of every web page, which applies
to the start page and all important subpages. It appears in bold
type in the top line of the Google™ search results. The
most important keyword of the page should be placed as far to
the left as possible in the title, as this is where it works best
for the ranking. Always choose a meaningful title and avoid boring
enumerations to get more clicks from users.
To ensure that the title appears completely in the search results,
you should not exceed a maximum of 62
Description (maximum 154 characters):
The description appears in the search results below the title
and informs the user what to expect when visiting this page. The
quality of this text often determines whether the user clicks
on this result and really wants to visit this page. The description
should therefore also be as meaningful as possible and briefly
and accurately describe the contents of the respective page.
Keyword enumerations are also counterproductive here, as the
user expects an easy-to-read text with the most important information.
Call-To-Action phrases like "visit us" or "get
more information" are also very effective for more clicks
To avoid the text being shortened in the search results, you
should not exceed a maximum of 154 characters.
