SEO Audit showing low word count

In every SEO tool that I have used, they show a low word count (8 for my home page) when in fact I have paragraphs on my webpage.  Why is this and how can I fix?  It seems the SEO settings on a 'paragaph' are not showing to the crawlers as content/text which means the same is probably happening with google which seems to be dramatically impacting my ranking.

Here's a good article on the subject: https://www.searchenginejournal.com/site-audit-low-word-count/341467/ BY VIP CONTRIBUTOR Adam Riemer

The Site Auditor will count both visible and invisible text and will report a "Low Word Count" warning if your page has less than 200 words.

Hello, 

It may be something with that tool. I put a website of yours in a SEO website word counter and it shows over 400 words on the home page:
