Reason(s) for removal: Something is up with the DVDbox adult affiliate program, but exactly what we are not sure. Additional info: Links to the program tour are now routing to their sister program FameDollars, all tools are missing from within the webmasters area, and we also see mention of VideoBox – a brand associated with Adult Platform, an adult affiliate program of which we are not particularly fond.
As you might have guessed, DVDbox might best be described as an adult DVD affiliate program. The program offers 3 high quality DVD sites, not counting a mobile version for one of them. Although each of the sites has its own distinctive look and feel, content-wise there is little to distinguish one from the other – though their flagship site is a bit more user friendly for surfers to browse the site and get a clear indication of the quality and extensiveness of the video library. That said, we are of the opinion that the best reason for affiliates to consider joining the DVDbox program is for their ‘flexlabel’ program, where affiliates can create their very own highly customizable white-label DVD sites.

Affiliates who choose to join the DVDbox adult affiliate program should take care when generating links to the promotional materials. We found that in the latest version of FireFox, gallery links would not populate – apparently hanging up on the template selection step of the process, and other links generated actually contained the affiliates ID and password within the URL! Fortunately, these just seem to be hiccups with FireFox as using Internet Explorer did not offer the same problems. However, with both browsers clicking the link that should have allowed us to create gallery RSS feeds simply directed us to a blank page.
Speaking of the galleries, although they are attractive and contain good unique text, they also contain canonical links to their root versions sans affiliate IDs. As there is little likelihood of affiliates getting these gallery links indexed with their affiliate IDs intact, those affiliates intent on using them might consider adding nofollow rel tags when linking to them and focus more on getting their own promotional copy indexed. However, we are of the opinion that the best option by far would be to take advantage of the white label program, and make use of the available promotional tools to promote them over the ready-made DVD sites.
For their ready-made adult DVD sites, the DVDbox adult affiliate program is just OK. The sites are of sufficient high quality to hold appeal, but the use of canonical links with the galleries is a bit of a disappointment. However, affiliates looking to build their own white label adult DVD sites should definitely take a look at the DVDbox adult affiliate program.
