You can use the word counter to find the word/keyword density of a website or text document - just paste the text into the box and click "Count Words". This word counter will display the number of unique words in the document, the total number of times they appear and the total as a percentage. This percentage is what is referred to as keyword density and is important to know for different industries, including for website development and SEO related purposes.

You can also use the word density counter for research and help determine politician talking points, for example, by putting their speech into the counter. The more they use certain words in a speech the more likely it relates to the messaging they are trying to give to the public. Knowledge is power!
