Of all the VOD adult affiliate programs we have looked at, we can affirm that AEBN is the best by far. In addition to their selection of niche theaters, you can also build your own white label VOD theater with no traffic leaks or have them build one for you matching the look and style of an existing site. In recent months they have upgraded their tools – the galleries are much more attractive now showcasing their HD content, and the RSS feeds are highly customizable with the option of including embedded tube clips! We should add that we have never heard of any affiliate having an issue with sales or getting paid – in that regard the AEBN adult affiliate program is above reproach.

Although the AEBN program tour reports that there is some exclusive content, we could not find it. In the theaters there are ‘Exclusive’ links, but they return DVDs from such producers as Smash Pictures and Lethal Hardcore – content you can find on many other sites. Although AEBN is primarily a VOD program they do not limit themselves to just the Pay-Per-Minute plan, but also offer their members 48 hour rentals, downloads with or without DRM protection and the option to burn their own full DVD. To our way of thinking, this gives members the best of both worlds – no monthly recurring membership fees and the ability to download full movies to watch over and over again.
Unfortunately, since initially reviewing the AEBN adult affiliate program, they have implemented the use of canonical links within the affiliate theaters. For those unfamiliar, canonical links basically instruct search engines to give preference to alternate versions of the same page – typically the programs own page without an affiliates ID. For this reason, we generally urge affiliates to limit their linking predominantly to the galleries or make use of nofollow link attributes when linking directly to theater pages containing canonical links.
In our opinion, AEBN is the best adult affiliate program for VOD content. The program offer some great tools to assist affiliates, such as galleries, tube clips, customizable RSS feeds, as well as a custom white label builder. This is one program that we feel every affiliate should be promoting in one form or another!
