IT’S not every day you knock a well known regional newspaper, a national newspaper and a popular consumer site into a cocked hat!

But this week we find the Olive Press website ranking at 12,636th position in the world, according to Amazon’s Alexa.com.

That is out of billions of websites and, in perspective, puts us above both the respected Liverpool Echo (13,156th), Scotland’s prestigious Daily Record (22,815th) and well known Mumsnet at 17,210th position.

It also places theolivepress.es in the Top 1000 sites in Spain and the UK.

NEW GROUND: The Olive Press has now overtaken prestigious UK papers the Liverpool Echo and Daily Record in the global rankings

By traffic numbers – around 40,000 to 50,000 visits a day – we are in 606th position in Britain and 910th in Spain.

Meanwhile we rank at 813th in Ireland and 79th in Gibraltar, while 3% of our visitors come from America and 3% from Holland, Germany and France.

Other local newspapers Sur in English and Euro Weekly News came in at a lowly 155,869 and 31,529th.

The Mallorca Daily Bulletin ranks at 875,718, while the Costa Blanca News ranks at 2.9m, Costa-news at 1.23m, Alicantetoday at 2.51m and Typically Spanish at 1.5m


This boils down to visitor numbers and pages viewed and we had 1.5 MILLION pages read over the last four weeks (see Google Analytics graph above), with 1.2 MILLION visits.

Using the research of another respected site Similar Web we discovered that the Euro Weekly News is getting under a third of our traffic, while the Sur in English and the Costa Blanca News a fraction of that.
