Reason(s) for removal: The MagnusBucks program is effectively closed due to an their NATS license being expired and overdue by more than 120 days. Additional info: Although their sites are still up, without the NATS software it is unlikely affiliates will be credited for any referred sales, much less paid.
Arguably, MagnusBucks might best be described as an adult affiliate program for gay and shemale content, however that is open to debate. MagnusBucks is a lesser-known adult affiliate program that appears to be without a clear conviction of exactly what kind of program they wish to be. Although their sites mainly fall into the gay and shemale niches, there are a handful of straight sites as well – primarily in the Asian niches. While updates do occur, at present they appear to be mainly geared for affiliates who promote FLV tube-style videos; in the past year only four sites have had new galleries added – and oddly enough, all of those sites are in the straight and lesbian niches. Affiliates who operate tubes, or use FLV tube-style videos in their promotion of a diversity of niches, may find the MagnusBucks adult affiliate program very much to their liking, though affiliates interested in frequent gallery updates will be considerably less enthused.

As mentioned above, affiliates who operate tubes or use FLV tube-style videos in their promotion of various niches may find the MagnusBucks adult affiliate program to their liking. However affiliates who primarily promote galleries should be aware that the majority of sites have not had any new galleries added in quite some time. Likewise, those affiliates primarily interested in the RSS feeds should note that while MagnusBucks has 3 feeds that are currently available, they have not been updated in a number of years, either.
Potential affiliates will be pleased to note that nowhere in the MagnusBucks adult affiliate program will they find shady indexing tricks such as noindex tags on pages containing affiliate IDs, canonical linking, or robots txt files that are often employed by other programs to limit the search engine indexing of pages containing affiliate IDs in favor of the house pages without said IDs. All in all, MagnusBucks is not a bad program, though more frequent gallery updates and updated RSS feeds would go a long way to assist a majority of affiliates in their promotion of the diversity of adult niches represented here.
