Does cell contain the word "Yes"

If a cell contains the word "Yes" (with a few other words in it), we want it it to be "Counted". What would the "countif" be?

We actually will be using the formula for excel and for Google Docs. Is that possible?

In Excel you can just do the following.  Not sure about Google Docs...

=COUNTIF(A:A,"*yes*")

in Excel, If you are referring just 1 cell, then you may use as below formula in first cell and drag down; assuming you are referring to A1.
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Yes",A1)), "Counted", "")
