Count Total Words on a Remote Page using ASP

Discussion in 'C#' started by craigedmonds, Apr 13, 2006.

    I have been asked by someone to get a quote to have their web site translated into two other languages.

    I have generated a list of all the urls on the site, they have about 200 or so pages with different amounts of text on each one.

    Now I need make a small spider to go to each url and count the total number of words that appear on each page.

    My idea is to send the spider to each url, and it tells me how many words appear on the page, pretty simple really.

    That way I can turn around and tell the client, you have appx 15,000 words that need translating, its going to cost you such and such.

    Anyone know how to do this?

    okay, so I am slightly interested, even though its in php. :rolleyes:

    PM me with your estimated costs for this.

    If you have an example somewhere to show me, that would close the deal.
