The Olive Press… big in America


AMERICANS viewed an incredible 92,000 pages on the Olive Press website last month.

The figure makes the USA the Olive Press online’s biggest fan base.

They aren’t alone, people from Britain, Spain and even India and Japan make up the 35,000 ‘unique’ visitors to Spain’s best English news website each month.

The popular news outlet is now expecting even more visitors worldwide after a facelift to improve its appearance with a new, more accessible layout.

Rated as a three star website with Google the Olive Press online features heavily on Google news and is used by the British press to pick up stories on Andalucia and Spain.

Organised into the areas of news, features, travel and health, it is also broken down into regions to make it easier for visitors to find local stories.

The Olive Press can even be found on Twitter, the new social networking phenomenon which counts Stephen Fry and Barack Obama among its fans.

The micro-blogging site allows you to follow breaking news stories online with regular updates. For those not yet ‘tweeting’ the RSS feed direct from the website sends breaking stories straight to blogs and emails to make sure readers don’t miss a thing. Daily news updates have become a key tool in The Olive Press online becoming Andalucia’s best news outlet.

Online discussions fuelled by the investigative articles on the site have built up a legion of loyal followers and even led to story updates in the paper.


  1. The current website “resdesign” is very confusing, and in my opinion worse that the older design. There is far too much information on the page, and much of it is out of date. The Tweet thing is a waste of time since it should be used for regular updates, not story updates which happen once a month (RSS is better for that). Also, making a website look like a paper is the first wrong step.
