Although their sites are up and running, the Date Profits affiliate program tour is returning a custom 404 error.
Date Profits is actually several high quality adult dating affiliate programs combined into one. While originally they were separate dating programs targeting specific niches, the individual programs have since been grouped together into this single adult dating program. While consolidating all of the sites into a single program with a single payout does hold added appeal to potential affiliates, the unfortunate downside is the loss of most of the tools that were previously available – specifically hosted galleries and RSS feeds. Sadly, this lack of tools seems to be the new norm for dating programs. However, legacy affiliates – those who were already enrolled in the programs before the merge, can still log in to their old webmasters area to access what tools were last available and continue to work for the newly merged program. While the legacy tools are still functional – and affiliates continue to be credited with all sales through them, they are obviously no longer updating. [Review updated 03/26/2020]

Most affiliates would be well served to consider the Pay Per Lead payment model, as free joins to dating sites are relatively easy to generate, but conversions to paid members is considerably more difficult. Additionally, affiliates will find that the niche dating sites convert considerably better than the general dating sites offered by many similar programs when promoted from sites within the same or similarly related niche. Furthermore, it should be noted that the Date Profits program is widely regarded as a trusted and reputable affiliate program by webmasters promoting dating content.
Affiliates will be pleased to know that Date Profits does not make use of canonical links, noindex meta tags, or robots txt files to limit the affiliates chances of getting their pages indexed by search engines. Not too many adult affiliate programs in the dating niche can make that claim. The lack thereof will prove especially beneficial to those affiliates who prefer to deep-link directly to individual profile pages.
While the consolidation of the disparate niche dating affiliate programs into the single Date Profits program has its distinct advantages, the loss of the previous programs RSS feeds and hosted galleries is mildly disappointing. However, affiliates should bear in mind that the absence of such tools is increasingly common in the dating niches. Those affiliates looking for a reputable sponsor with niche dating content would do well to consider the Date Profits adult affiliate program.
