@margarita, to check number of words in an article fastest, Easiest way is use Microsoft word document, it will show number of words at bottom bar on the program. If you need an free online tool, I recommend you use word count tool on our website.
Here: https://www.webmastersun.com/tools/word-count.html
Just paste your article into text box, you can see more options such as character count, line count, word count..etc

Hope it helps!

Hi Margarita,

Yes, Microsoft Word is good to count the number of Words for your articles. Just select the words you want to count and press Ctrl+Shift+G, you will get a popup with number of words, number of characters and other useful information.

What purposes character counting tool use for?
As my experience, I will pay for a writer base on number of words they provided, not for characters
Thats a good question. As per present SEO trends, I prefer number of characters, rather than number of words. This is because, whenever you find any standard on Google for a given writeup , they always mention number of characters , like in Title tag, Meta-Description,etc. So when going for any article, it is better to take characters into account rather than words, because number of characters can hugely vary between two words. Difference in number of characters between optimum and above optimum hugely matters in case of SEO.
