HonestGamers appeals almost exclusively to gamers, an audience that includes more than just the 8-year-old elementary students that fit the expired stereotype. The group also contains adults in their early 20s or 30s, men and women both. Gamers are the motivated spenders who you want to reach with your ads for cars, insurance, dating sites, movies, music, food and of course, games. Given our current audience, we are currently requesting the following rates, depending on the desired ad location and campaign duration:

  • $50/month or $13/week - "top" banner, displays on every page on the site except for blogs and guides.
  • $50/month or $13/week - "box" banner, displays prominently on guides only.
  • $35/month or $11/week - "bottom" banner, displays on every page on the site except for guides.

The above rates are subject to change without notice, but the current prices will always be listed on this page and we will consider all reasonable offers. Please note that your ads will not display for registered users who are logged into their site accounts. However, a lot of our traffic does come from casual visitors who find us using search engines and the like. They're the perfect audience for your content because they're less likely to suffer from ad blindness. If you think the above terms make us a good partner for your advertising needs, we'd love to hear from you. That is, we'd love to hear from you if you're looking to advertise something while closely following a few important guidelines. Any ads you run at HonestGamers:

  • May not promote shady activity (piracy, gambling, etc.)
  • Must be safe for work
  • May not expand or play sound on mouseover
  • Must not significantly impact page load speed
  • Should be 728Wx90H or 300Wx250H (guide pages only)

Your ad will display on the pages specified above, potentially including on the site forums (which are moderated but allow free speech within reasonable and tasteful bounds) and at the bottom of staff and reader blogs. If you would like to discuss advertising on the site or you have a sponsorship proposal, simply click here to contact us. We try to respond to all serious offers. Thanks again for your interest, and have a great day!
