Reason(s) for removal: Since being acquired by Media Revenue, no webmasters referred to the HypeTraffic adult affiliate program appear to have had their accounts activated. Additional info: Correspondence with the Media Revenue team suggests that they are only interested in quality affiliates with a proven track record – which is kind of ironic considering their own less than stellar reputation.
The HypeTraffic adult affiliate program is made up of three distinct programs that have effectively been rolled into one. Since being acquired by the folks of Media Revenue, the MeatCash, Movie Profits, and WildCash affiliate programs have been grouped together into a single program of substantial size. While potential affiliates may be initially impressed, it is important to take note that the Media Revenue programs are known for not adding any new content nor updating any of the promotional tools once taking ownership of a program, and HypeTraffic is no exception.

The best part about having such disparate adult affiliate programs rolled into one is that HypeTraffic has something to offer nearly every affiliate. Before being acquired by Media Revenue, the MeatCash program built a sizable network of sites with exclusive content, while Movie Profits focused on niche DVD download sites, and WildCash built niche sites with licensed scene content before building a few exclusive content sites. With well over a hundred sites, nearly every niche is represented, and more often than not with several sites within a given niche to choose from. However, affiliates are encouraged to double check to insure that the join pages are working properly – several of the MeatCash sites were not, and it makes little sense to promote sites that members are unable to join.
Despite their shortcomings, HypeTraffic should be praised for eschewing the use of canonical links, noindex meta tags, and robots txt files to improve the house’s own search engine results over those of their affiliates. I am fairly certain at least one of the programs now part of HypeTraffic initially used those less than honest indexing tricks, so it would appear as if the folks at Media Revenue made it a point to remove the tricky coding once they took over.
Media Revenue has been the subject of a fair amount of grumblings in the adult community. As mentioned, once Media Revenue assumes ownership of an adult affiliate program affiliates can be pretty much certain that they have seen the last of that programs content updates. Even more unsavory, however, are the numerous allegations of ‘card banging,’ where members signup for one Media Revenue owned site with their credit card and later see recurring sales for other sites also owned by Media Revenue begin appearing in their credit card statements. While I can neither confirm nor deny whether or not these claims are valid, some webmasters claim to have investigated by joining a single Media Revenue site with their own credit cards and later seen unauthorized sales to other Media Revenue sites appear in their statements.
