Question: My website includes the same header and footer text on each page. How can I get a word count for my website that excludes that information?

Answer: Since every website is different, and everyone’s needs are different, InSite counts every single word on every page. It doesn’t distinguish between menus, the page header, or the page footer.

If you need to exclude this information from the word count, the easiest way is to export the word count data to CSV format (using the “Report” feature). You can open the CSV file in Excel, then use an Excel formula to subtract the number of header/footer words from each page that has the header and footer.
