Reason(s) for removal: It appears as if the PureCashMasters adult affiliate program has finally closed, though without any official notice. Additional info: None.
PureCashMasters is a very small adult affiliate program whose flagship site seems best described as high quality public, or at least outdoor, content. Since we first reviewed them, they have added some sites, removed them, and added more, but never really growing their site lineup, although the previous sites are still in operation. Furthermore, the only promotional tools available are for the flagship site, and those have not been updated in a matter of years. Which is a terrible shame, because the content on the flagship site – and the two sites that were removed – is very good, while the latest additions are not nearly as engaging.

As intimated above, the exact update schedule for the PureCashMasters sites is difficult to determine as the galleries do not readily reveal when they were added, though it seems the last galleries were added on August 18, 2011. The FLV tube clips, however, appear to have been last updated on New Years Day of 2012, and offer various dump methods including an RSS feed. Though affiliates should note that the latest entries are somewhat broken with blank entry titles and no scene description text. Affiliates may, or may not, be pleased to know that in the effort to keep their members recurring, PureCashMasters has apparently partnered with SilverCash to provide members of the PureCashMasters sites with bonus content feeds. In addition to added value to the member, members will be more likely to renew their memberships as they will continue to receive the third party updates between the actual sites content updates – at least in theory.
Affiliates should be pleased to know that the PureCashMasters adult affiliate program does not engage in any of the circumspect indexing practices that are often employed by other programs to garner the lion’s share of search engine traffic at the expense of the affiliates own indexing. In other words, here you will not find the use of canonical links, robots files, or noindex meta tags in the pages containing affiliate IDs. However, it is interesting to point out that the join pages do contain single pre-checked cross-sales even though PureCashMasters adamantly says otherwise on the program tour’s FAQ page. Personally, I think cross-sales are perfectly acceptable, so long as they are conspicuous enough that potential members are fully aware of them and can then make the decision of whether or not they would like to accept the bonus offers. Indexing shenanigans to capitalize on the hard working affiliates, on the other hand, is a different matter entirely – and I feel much more justified in recommending adult affiliate programs that eschew such practices.
In short, the PureCashMasters adult affiliate program has excellent quality public content – both hardcore and soft, though their update schedule as of late leaves a bit to be desired. However, with a current list of 928 galleries and 191 FLV videos, affiliates should have more than enough content to promote until the next eventual update.
