For SEO analysis, I am using Google Sheets to extract basic data from my own webpages.

I am able to access page title, description, <h1> tags, or number of characters via LEN():

=IMPORTXML(A3, "//title/text()")
=IMPORTXML(A3, "//meta[@name='description']/@content")
=IMPORTXML(A3, "//h1")

However, I cannot find a way to count the number of words in <body> (excluding html tags). I am trying to identify pages with thin content for SEO.
