Reason(s) for removal: Classics Cash will soon be closing. Additional info: “The [Classics Cash] program has been on auto pilot for over 3 years and we feel it is time to move on in order to focus on other projects rather than try to revive this one. All sites are for sale with some being sold already. We will keep the sites working until May 31st to give you time to receive this email and take appropriate action.
“We will be looking over all affiliate accounts for monies owed and everyone will be paid regardless if they reached their minimum payout or not. Final payments will be sent in June and July.”
As you might have guessed by their name, the Classics Cash adult affiliate program is best noted for their quality vintage and retro content sites. In addition to their classic content sites, Classics Cash also offers four sites that are more contemporary, including two with featured girls, one with amateur girlfriends, and another with amateur MILFs. As is to be expected, the content on the classic sites are not exclusive, yet that of the more contemporary featured girls is. While updates do occur, they are rather inconsistent – their flagship vintage site updates weekly but some of the other sites have not seen updates in a matter of years.

The Classics Cash galleries are very attractive, but sadly lacking in any unique scene description text. Unfortunately the site tours themselves are not easily searchable to find the corresponding scenes so affiliates may have some difficulty learning more about the scene to assist in writing their own promotional copy. However the galleries frequently contain unique titles that often include the female performers name which may be of some use in tracking down more info about the scene in question – as well as offer a bit of SEO to facilitate the gallery being indexed. Although the flagship site updates fairly frequently, there are no RSS feeds for affiliates to quickly grab the latest updates, which is regrettable.
While we are pleased to say that Classics Cash does not employ indexing tricks such as canonical linking, nofollow meta tags or robots.txt files to inhibit affiliates pages from getting indexed by the search engines, it should be noted that on site tracking is by cookies rather than hard links so affiliates may consider using nofollow link attributes when linking to the sites directly. All in all, we would say that the Classics Cash adult affiliate program is one of the better programs for vintage and retro content.
Update 01/18/2012 : Affiliates should be aware that the hosted galleries link currently returns a blank page. We emailed the program administrator about this issue nearly two weeks ago and was promptly told he would take a look, but there has been no change since. While industrious affiliates can still locate hosted galleries and swap out the affiliate ID, that is not a convenient long-term alternative. While this program would otherwise qualify for a good ranking, until affiliates have the ability to quickly and easily browse available galleries and updates it seems reasonable to downgrade our review to poor.
