The paper is published in Stockholm and provides coverage of national and international news as well as local coverage of the Greater Stockholm region. Its subscribers are concentrated in the capital, but it is distributed in most of Sweden. During the beginning of the 1900s the paper was one of the right-wing publications in Stockholm.
Svenska Dagbladet is owned by Schibsted which purchased it in the late 1990s. The stated position of the editorial page is "independently moderate" (oberoende moderat), which means it is independent but adheres to the liberal conservatism of the Moderate Party. On the other hand, the paper is also regarded as conservative.
Since 1925 Svenska Dagbladet has awarded an individual sportsperson or a team the Svenska Dagbladet Gold Medal at the end of each year.
