Reason(s) for removal: It appears as if the Diablo Dollars program has closed. Additional info: This program’s closure comes as no surprise, as we had already removed their links from our indices for under-performance and general lack of affiliate interest.
Adult affiliates who promote Emo and Alt girl content will likely find the Diablo Dollars one of the best money making programs in the niche. Where most programs that are primarily focused on Emo and Alt girl content feature a variety of models in solo and posing sets and thus fall on the more softcore end of the adult site spectrum, other programs at the harder end of that spectrum might have just a couple of models appropriate to the niche. This is where the Diablo Dollars adult affiliate program stands out from the rest. Diablo Dollars is devoted to high quality hardcore content featuring some of the adult industries finest inked up babes and punky style newbies.

While the Diablo Dollars adult affiliate program isn’t exactly busting at the seams with ready made promotional tools, they certainly have enough to be of benefit to affiliates. Affiliates will find image and flash banners, downloadable content, FLV tube clips, and of course hosted galleries. We are also pleased to say that those hosted galleries contain lengthy text descriptions that affiliates may find particularly useful as a basis on which to draft their own unique promotional copy.
Typically, we like to see such text rich galleries as they also offer affiliates some chance of getting their affiliate galleries crawled and indexed, thereby having the potential to benefit from search engine traffic. Unfortunately, that is not the case with the Diablo Dollars galleries. All of the programs galleries get redirected to galleries residing on the DirtyDiablos domain. The site on that domain, as well as the redirected galleries, all contain canonical links. For those unfamiliar with canonical links, they are basically instructions to search engines to give preferential indexing to a particular version of a given page, nearly always the version without any affiliate IDs. Thus the chance of affiliates getting those pages indexed drops to near zero. Typically, we feel that it is in the affiliates best interest to use nofollow link attributes when linking to any page containing canonical links or other devices used to restrict inclusion in search engines. Fortunately, DirtyDiablos is the only site in the program effectively utilizing canonical links, and we see no other similar devices (such as robots.txt files or noindex meta tags) being used.
Personally, we feel that canonical links on galleries is excessive. Fortunately though with downloadable content sets and FLV options, affiliates have the means to promote the Diablo Dollars program of sites while bypassing the hosted galleries altogether, though it entails a bit more work. However, considering the nature and quality of the content, we are confident the added effort will prove well worth it.
