WE have worked incredibly hard over the last two years to make sure that the Olive Press is not just seen as a printed newspaper.
By ensuring original content goes up daily onto our website www.theolivepress.es and by reflecting and reacting to big events – we have become THE key local news website for many expats around Spain.
Whether this means being the first English site to post a video of the Galicia train crash, the only site to update the current Gibraltar situation on the hour, or just posting a quirky off-beat blogging post, we are proud of our endeavours.
It is already getting us over 250,000 visitors a month and it is great news that our hard work has just been recognised in an awards ceremony for global expat sites.
To beat The Telegraph’s popular and frequently updated site to silver and to see Sur in English and the EuroWeekly News miles out of the medals table is a real honour.
Next year we are aiming for gold!
