AdultDateLink is an adult dating affiliate program with 46 dating sites. One site is a general/all inclusive dating site, and the rest are dedicated to a variety of popular niches. It should be mentioned in advance that the actual sites offer very little for surfers to peruse before signing up – generally just niche landing and signup pages. However, the lack of content initially available for site visitors to browse is mitigated by a good selection of promotional tools. In addition to static and Geo-IP banners, widgets, and RSS feeds for each site, a decent selection of galleries are provided for promoting seven of the more versatile sites. As a point of clarification, it should be mentioned up front that although the program mentions having hosted videos as a promotional tool, what they call hosted galleries are in actuality iframe chat widgets.

Those interested in the PPC model should note that due to abuse, that particular payment structure is not initially available to new affiliates of the AdultDateLink program. After an appropriate trial period, new affiliates can request the PPC model provided they have demonstrated an acceptable level of performance in that time. However, it should be noted that the PPC and PPE models are contingent upon maintaining an acceptable level of performance. Those who cannot meet that level of performance will find their accounts retroactively switched to either the revshare or PPS model. While that may initially seem suspect to those not acquainted with promoting programs with free trials, most typically cams and dating, it is a fairly common stipulation. Generally speaking, disgruntled affiliates making allegations that such programs are scams are often responding to having their payment models altered for their traffic failing to meet the required minimum ratio of free to paid conversions. As mentioned in other reviews for programs offering free trials, while the commissions are significantly smaller, they are much easier to generate, making them a very attractive model provided affiliates can still meet the requisite conversion rate.
Potential affiliates will undoubtedly find the RSS feeds of particular interest. The feeds are fairly text heavy and link to the corresponding profile pages with the affiliates ID intact. Best of all, the photos in the entries appear to belong to real members, and not high quality photos that were obviously taken by a professional in a studio, nor the same ubiquitous self-shot photos appearing on just about every ex-girlfriend site that savvy surfers have seen countless times already. In other words, the feed entries and profile pages have the very convincing look of belonging to real people and not too-good-to-be-true fake profiles designed to trick surfers into joining. Furthermore, the sites, including the profile pages, are devoid of canonical links, noindex meta tags, and robots.txt files which are often used by less reputable programs to prevent indexing of pages containing affiliate IDs.
All in all, AdultDateLink appears to be a very good dating adult affiliate program. While more tools would certainly be welcome, what tools are currently available are of such high quality as to warrant calling this dating program one of the best, especially when compared side by side with their competition. Affiliates looking for a quality dating program with a wide selection of niche sites and excellent feeds to promote them should definitely have a look at AdultDateLink.
