Algarve Resident pushes online

Launched in early 1999, the Algarve Resident website – – was one of the first in the Algarve and also one of the few newspaper websites of its calibre in Portugal.

Dave Leeke and then business partner Steve Reid (founders of Nexus) were responsible for the first online version of the Algarve Resident among other portals in the region.

The enjoyment of working with, and professionalism of Dave have contributed to a long standing and fruitful business relationship.

Working with the same website developer over the years, whose penchant for online newspapers is obvious, has helped the Algarve Resident keep its position as one of the highest ranked websites in its field attracting nearly 40,000 unique visitors from across the globe and over 61,000 page impressions monthly, independently verified by Google Analytics.

Every article, in every printed edition of the newspaper, is uploaded to the website ready for viewers to read on a Friday. That means there are over 660 editions of the weekly newspaper, with all of its news and feature content, searchable and online thus making one of the Algarve’s biggest web resources.

Since the acquisition of the Algarve Resident in April this year by international publishing house Open Media S.A., developments to improve the already well-respected newspaper portal have been underway.

Giving more is the name of the game and these challenging times have forced every company to review its advertising spend and improve its visibility.

“Open Media, with the Algarve Resident newspaper as part of its stable, is in the unique position to be able to offer more for less in today’s difficult times,” said Algarve Resident Commercial Director, Mark Rawcliffe. “It is essential for clients to have the best possible visibility in the market today.”

On top of the growing readership of our print edition, we receive over 40,000 unique visitors a month online.

As from this edition, certain advertisers* will receive a clickable link advert on the Algarve Resident website, FREE OF CHARGE, increasing their visibility.
