Zawya Dow Jones News Service, produced jointly by Dow Jones Newswires and ABQ Zawya, reached a significant milestone this month when page views on the service in 2009 topped the 1 million mark. That represents a record number of hits on more than 23,000 published Zawya Dow Jones stories via the paid Zawya Investor website.
“This marks another step forward in the development of the Zawya Dow Jones News Service,” said Neal Lipschutz, senior vice president and managing editor, Dow Jones Newswires. “Launched in June 2006, Zawya Dow Jones has quickly established itself as an indispensable source of objective and ground-breaking news and analysis for those seeking an understanding of the region’s financial markets.”
The record number of page views this year comes at a time when Zawya Dow Jones is expanding its presence in the Middle East region, adding reporting staff in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia and laying plans for a reporting presence in Qatar and Kuwait.
