Ok.. why do I get this error on this line: if (text[n] = count_word){ Dont mind the bad spanish there.. just learning spanish these days and trying to practice.. :)
#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include <vector>

using std::cout;
using std::cin;
using std::endl;
using std::string;
using std::vector;

int main()
{
    cout << "Por favor tipe una palabra por cuanta en su texto: ";
    string count_word;
    cin >> count_word;
    cout << "Por favor tipe su texto y yo contara tus palabras: ";
    
    vector<string> text;
    string input;
    while (cin >> input)
          text.push_back(input);
    vector<string>::size_type size = text.size();
    
    int count = 0;
    for(int n = 0; n != size; ++n) {
          if (text[n] = count_word){
             ++count;
          }
    }
    cout << "Vos tipiste \"" << count_word << "\" " << count << " veces."; 
}

Because your doing an assignment instead of a comparison, and the result of the assignment is a string which can't automatically be converted to a bool. Instead use

if (text[n] == count_word){

Glad to see I'm not the only one who does that. Most of my variables get German names :-)
