Reason(s) for removal: The BOS BUCKS program appears to have closed without notice. Additional info: “For all inquiries please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org”
The BOS BUCKS adult affiliate program has a variety of high quality sites devoted to many of the more popular niches. However very little, if any, of the content is exclusive. While BOS BUCKS does have a pair of morphing feeds and six standard gallery update RSS feeds, most of these feeds have not seen updates in quite some time, though a single site did have new galleries last added in December of 2011 which is reflected in it’s corresponding feed. Sadly, this lack of updates coupled with other minor issues seems to indicate that the BOS BUCKS adult affiliate program is no longer being actively managed.

In addition to the general lack of promotional gallery updates, a few other minor issues indicate that the BOS BUCKS adult affiliate program is no longer being actively managed. Chiefly among these is that the given links to the standard gallery update RSS feeds do not pass along the affiliates NATS code, so some minor revision is necessary for affiliates to be credited with any referring sales. Not overly complicated, affiliates will want to take the provided link and replace ‘?nats=’ and everything that follows with ‘&nats=’ followed by the appropriate NATS code. So, [sic]/rss/Interracial?feed=1?nats=MjQzODQ6NTc6MTY,0,0,0,&nats_enc=cXVhbGl0eWFkdWx0:bXh0amRzZ3J5:NmUyYjZkMDliYWI4ZjRkMjRmM2VjOGE2MDA2YmY3NDA=:1:MzkyNg== would be changed to [sic]/rss/Interracial?feed=1&nats=MjQzODQ6NTc6MTY,0,0,0,0.. However, that does not fix all of the problems, as it also appears that some of the galleries prompt ‘Reported Attack Page’ warnings.
Affiliates should be pleased to learn that the BOS BUCKS adult affiliate program does not use noindex meta tags, canonical links, or robots text files to encourage search engines to index their own versions of pages sans affiliate IDs over those containing said affiliate IDs. However, as the sites do not have their own mobile versions, BOS BUCKS monetizes whatever mobile traffic their sites receive with third party mobile sites. Thus, affiliates referring mobile traffic to the BOS BUCKS sites are essentially sending traffic to separate mobile programs, for which BOS BUCKS profits and not the affiliate. Of course, this is only of importance to those affiliates who are not already monetizing their mobile traffic in a similar fashion. (Affiliates who have yet to monetize their mobile traffic would do well to consider doing so. Many of these mobile sponsors provide excellent sites and tools for just that purpose.)
While the lack of promotional updates and other issues are disappointing, since several of the sites tours tout daily updates, it is conceivable that the BOS BUCKS program merely places a premium on providing for their members, and for their affiliates not so much. While understandable, this seeming neglect does give cause for affiliates to question whether or not they might be best served promoting a program that makes promotional tools and updates more readily available to the affiliate.
