Apparently the RealityPayouts adult affiliate program has closed without notice and its sites incorporated into a new program. Although we got an email inviting us to join the new program, there was no mention of RealityPayouts closing. Basically, affiliates will need to join the new program and change their links if they wish to be paid for promoting those sites.
RealityPayouts is a relatively new adult affiliate program featuring 100% exclusive quality content. Currently there are only seven sites, but two of those sites appear to be intended as multi-pass tours for their gay and straight sites respectively. While the multi-pass sites would seem to indicate that additional sites will be forthcoming, that also means that there are currently only five featured ‘stand-alone’ sites – three in the gay niche, and the other two centered around straight teens. Unfortunately, there also appears to be a paucity of promotional tools, though that might easily be attributed to the newness of the program as well and subject to change as the program continues to grow.

As of this writing, the RealityPayouts adult affiliate program has only been active for just over six months. While content has been added in that time, nothing new has been added in the past couple of months. Granted, there are undoubtedly a myriad of issues to be addressed in a fledgling program until all the kinks are eventually worked out, but building a collection of core content for affiliates to promote should be paramount. Speaking of kinks, affiliates are encouraged to double-check the links in the galleries to make sure they actually link out to the sites – perusing the galleries revealed that several were broken or missing altogether.
RealityPayouts affiliates will be pleased to know that the program does not utilize canonical links, noindex meta tags, or robots.txt files to horde search engine traffic for themselves. This is especially heartening for such a new program as affiliates getting on board early have considerably less competition promoting this exclusive content, and thus a fair chance of getting their links indexed. That said, it should also be pointed out that the galleries do not make use of unique text scene descriptions or any other particularly useful SEO. However, as the program is so new, the site tours do contain most of the updates to date, complete with scene description, for which there are galleries. So, it’s a fairly simple matter to find some corresponding text to spin or otherwise use as a basis for your own promotional copy.
On one adult webmaster forum, speculation was made concerning whether or not RealityPayouts was affiliated with the DeeCash cum Media Revenue network of programs. Personally, we don’t believe there is a significant connection for a couple of reasons, but primarily because DeeCash cum Media Revenue does not generally build anything new, but rather buys up existing web properties that have already run their course. Further, Media Revenue properties typically have the exact same contacts: Tam, Nick, and Winston – though that is a tenuous argument at best.
All said, RealityPayouts may prove to be a good adult affiliate program, however at present they still have a ways to go. It would be nice to see them step up their update schedule, as well as offer a few more promotional tools, but time will tell if that will eventually happen. In the meantime, affiliates looking for a brand new program with brand new sites that surfers have not seen dozens of times already may wish to check them out.
