How to count number of anchor tags got?

0 votes

I am using BeautifulSoup to extract some anchor tags from a page.

soup = BeautifulSoup(html)
for tag in soup.find_all('a'):
    print (tag.text)

But I don’t know how many anchor tags I have got. I want to have a count of it.

I tried doing this

print (count(tag.text))

But it didn’t work. Any idea how to do it?

I had a similar requirement, this is what I did:

soup = BeautifulSoup(html)
i = 0
for tag in soup.find_all('a',{"class":"qa-user-link"}):
    print (tag.text)
    i=i+1
    print (i)
