ManicaMoney is a very good program for high quality content in a variety of adult niches. While the content is superb, and the sites laid out attractively, it is worth noting that each of the sites showcases the content of a corresponding studio, particularly niche European studios. As such, the content does not appear to be entirely exclusive as the sites suggest, though it seems likely a good portion is produced expressly for those sites, or has been otherwise unreleased. In any event, affiliates will find several promo tools to assist in their promotion, including regularly updating galleries of very high quality. Affiliates should be similarly pleased to know that the ManicaMoney program has been busily expanding their lineup, having launched several brand new studio content sites within the past year or so.

As mentioned above, affiliates will find that the ManicaMoney program has some very attractive galleries, and the flash video galleries are particularly well suited to assist affiliates in their promotion. This is because, unlike the photo galleries, they each contain lengthy unique text descriptions in addition to corresponding images which affiliates might incorporate into their own promotional copy. Furthermore, although downloadable, embedded, and hosted videos are also available to affiliates, it bears mentioning that none of them have seen any new videos added in the better part of a year, as of this writing. It should also be noted that there are two feed options available to affiliates; one is an XML format that the average affiliate will find impractical, and the other is an RSS that is an artifact of NATS. While the latter format is compatible with readers and such, the entries are formatted to mainly assist affiliates in grabbing the latest updates and not for direct promotion.
Affiliates are likely to appreciate that all of the ManicaMoney sites are formatted for multiple compatibility with all kinds of mobile devices, tablets, smart TVs and the like. Additionally, we are pleased to say that the ManicaMoney does not make any use of deceptive indexing tactics – particularly we are referring to noindex meta tags, canonical links, or robots files to instruct the search engines to not index pages containing affiliate IDs. Unfortunately, though, that is not much of an issue with the sites as the affiliate IDs are dropped from the URLs once surfers navigate past the sites’ corresponding warning pages. While it is possible for affiliates to create their own deep links to particular pages with their affiliate IDs, we generally advise caution in doing so. We are of the opinion it is much easier, and safer, to limit linking to those well formatted galleries. They have the possibility of getting indexed, and will cookie visitors to them with the affiliates ID.
All in all, ManicaMoney is a good adult affiliate program. They offer high quality content, update regularly, and have some excellent galleries to assist affiliates in their promotion. Better feeds and/or more regular updates to the video tools would be nice, but we don’t perceive the lack thereof to be a deal breaker.
