Gumshoe Review Spec  ISBN/ITEM#: AdInfo
Date: June 1, 2006 / Show Official Info /

We've got lots of book and magazine reviews asking to be taken to our readers, and now we're offering advertising space on our review pages.

Wasn't love of the genre enough?

Actually, we think we can serve the mystery community better by offering advertising. Revenue will let us spend more time working on the publication, attract more professional talent, and just plain keep us going. We're hoping to run ads primarily from the publishing and fannish communities as well, so the paid content we run should enhance the publication.


According to our web stats, Gumshoe Review gets an average 610 unique Page Views a month and averages 315 unique users per month (2017). We recently switched to Google Analytics. In addition, you should note that our counts have been increasing as we try to pull in readers via social media such as Facebook and Twitter, so we expect more views as time goes by. We also have average viewing times of nearly 2 minutes per visit so those who land on our site actually read/look at it.

Lost in Adspace? or How Much For Just The Planet?

We are using a rotating system to display ads on our pages, and will only sell a limited number of ads so your number of impressions (ad displays) should never drop below 5000 views per month. You can buy more than one ad space to increase your page views, but this allows us to keep prices down so that small vendors can afford our pages. We're offering two ad sizes and locations at the moment:

Ad Location Size(max) Cost
Top Banner 520x80 $50/mo
Right Col. 160x200 $50/mo

If you'd like to know more contact us at:


  1. Column ads are stacked in a 600 pixel tall column with random order.
  2. Hyperlinks and alternate text can be included at no additional charge. If you do not have a site you wish to link to, we can display a larger or alternate version of your ad, linked to the page ad. Maximum size for the larger ad is 600 wide x 800 (about the proportions of a letter sized paper)
  3. Multiple ad blocks can be bought to make up taller ads up to 600 pixels
  4. If you want us to do ad layout, we're happy to do so. Feel free to contact us and let us know what you'd like. We have professional graphics artists, photographers, web designers and copywriters to assist you.
  5. Ads run from the first of each month to the last day of the month.
  6. Payment is acceptable by either check or PayPal payment. Checks should be made payable to "Gayle Surrette". Ads will not run until payment is received. Our mailing address is: Gayle Surrette/Gumshoe Review, 16440 Baden Westwood Road, Brandywine, Maryland 20613 / PayPal Account:
