The mission of The James Bond Dossier is to provide fans with news, information, opinion and reviews related to Ian Fleming’s books and the long-running film series.
The site was started by David Leigh in January 2002, adopting the current name in 2004. Initially only about Ian Fleming’s books, the focus widened after the success of Casino Royale when Daniel Craig’s portrayal of 007 made it clear that the series was pushing in a new, more interesting direction. Today the site covers all aspects of the world of James Bond.
A full two-thirds of visitors to the website are from the United States (36%) and the United Kingdom (26%), while India is in third place.
A breakdown of US and UK demographics reveals the following:
In addition to search engine traffic, The James Bond Dossier is active in social media and more than 5,500 subscribers have signed up to receive the monthly newsletter.
Content is posted to social media sites multiple times per week, depending on the volume of news and other shareable content.
Additionally, I’m a frequent participant on the James Bond & Friends podcast. To date the podcast has had 186,600 downloads since March 2019, 35,300 of which are over the last three months.
