Reason(s) for removal: Overall poor performance. Additional info: ZTOD never performed well for us, and things just got worse after their redesign.
ZTOD stands for Zero Tolerance On Demand, and is one of the best programs for adult affiliates to make money with high quality DVD content. Although their name suggests otherwise, the sites are membership based and NOT pay-per-view. Affiliates will no doubt notice that the ZTOD webmasters area and available tools are unmistakably similar to those of VideosZ, another DVD adult affiliate program. So much so that it should come as no surprise that these two programs were at one time owned and operated by the same parent company. Critically comparing the two programs side by side, however, reveals that ZTOD is certainly the better of the two programs.

While the two programs are remarkably similar in look and functionality, affiliates will be pleased to note that the ZTOD sites are not clones of VideosZ, nor of one another. ZTOD boasts several significant advantages over the other program including on site trailers for every scene, vastly superior RSS feeds replete with generous scene text, and niche sites that are considerably more than just landing pages for the same core site. The eponymous ZTOD site is devoted to content from Zero Tolerance, Third Movies has content by 3rd Degree Films, Black Ice Pass focuses exclusively on the ebony and interracial niches, and How To Kiss A Girl is dedicated to lesbian niche content. Additionally, referred members to any one site get full access to the rest.
Unfortunately, there are a couple of points which we feel affiliates should be made aware. First, affiliates should take note that the flagship ZTOD site does employ canonical linking while the rest of the programs sites do not, so may want to adjust their linking strategy accordingly. Second, the program appears to have linking/content issues from time to time, where various links, pages, and/or tools do not behave as they should. Case in point: while updating this review we found the RSS feeds to which we have become accustomed are not returning entries. Although they may become functional again shortly, as our practice is to document what is actually available we will remove their listing from our page for programs offering that promotional tool until we verify they are once again operational.
In total, the ZTOD program is very attractive with ongoing updates, high quality sites and content, and useful promotional tools. Affiliates looking for a good program offering DVD content sites would be well advised to consider the ZTOD adult affiliate program.
