Advertise on Algarve Daily NewsThere are three opportunities for you, the business customer, to reach an established readership across the Algarve and beyond.

Readership attracts and entertains an audience that is primarily British and Irish but also Dutch, German, and other Europeans, and English-speaking Portuguese.

Mainly 45-65 year old home-owning expats make up the majority of the readership.

Hits of course vary, but currently run at 4 million per month with 350,000 page visits from 89,000 visits to the site every month (Jan 2015).

The chart below shows unique visitors to the site from January 2014 to February 2015

Before looking at the normal advertising options, companies in the property market, or in businesses allied to this sector, should look at the special Spring Offer at the bottom of this section, or click see

ADVERTISE - OPTION 1.  Place your company logo on a  Rising Advert on the right hand side of the webpages. This space is limited to 30 ads at any one time on the loop. The adverts are randomised so every time a page is changed or refreshed, the order changes, meaning each ad has good and equal readership exposure. From your ad, readers can click straight through to your website.

  Another opportunity is to book one of the three Premium Static ad spaces at the top of the page. This ad remains on each page throughout the site and enables readers to click through to your website. There is a waiting list for this space, please ask for details.

OPTION 3. FOR PROPERTY ADVERTISERS there are additional 'rising ad' spaces on the Property section giving Estate Agents and property-related companies access to a segment of readers that clearly are interested in property. 

All three advertising options have a link through to your own company website, and our technology enables a click count to be recorded to see how your ad is doing.

Bonuses Included

Advertisers will get a free mention in the weekly e-newsletter to over 6.500 opt-in readers, with an additional link to your website.

Advertisers can also make use of our effective free Press Release service in both the ‘Features’ and ‘Community News’ sections as appropriate.

Double Up Deal for Algarve Advertisers

Algarve Daily News has teamed up with the Algarve’s premier property website, to bring companies and organisations a very special spring offer.

With Christmas well and truly over and the promise of a prosperous year for the Algarve, now’s a great time for businesses to market their products and services to people living and working in the region, or to those visiting the area.

The spring deal, which gives advertisers exposure on both and Algarve Daily News at an attractively discounted rate, will put business in front of just under 100,000 online visitors a month – and rising (that’s almost 300,000 readers between now and the end of May). What’s more, because both participating websites focus exclusively on the Algarve, each person reached in this campaign will have a specific interest in the region.

A three-month scrolling advert on would normally cost €105 and the same on Algarve Daily News is priced at €120. However, the spring promotion offers both placements for just €180 – that’s 20% off the standard rate of €225. The three month period starts from 1 March, however those who book and place their advertisements in February, will be rewarded with an additional bonus of any February days for free.

But, advertisers who take too long to act may be disappointed; this exclusive offer is open to the first five takers. So those keen to broaden their audience at a bargain rate, need to be among the fastest five to book.
