Reason(s) for removal: The Hushmoney adult affiliate program closes affiliate accounts without notice. Additional info: When we stopped being able to login around the same time that many of their sites went offline, we initially thought the program was in the process of closing. Shortly thereafter, however, we learned of a history of affiliates similarly unable to login without notice or explanation.
Hushmoney might best be described as an adult affiliate program for interracial and big dick content. Though they have many quality sites devoted to a range of adult niches, a premium is obviously attached to those of interracial and big dicks. Although evidence suggests that much of the content is exclusive, some is unmistakably similar to that of other popular sites – same male performers, same settings, etc. So, while the scenes may be technically exclusive to the Hushmoney program, surfers may not necessarily find all of the sites and content to be particularly novel.

Discerning the Hushmoney programs precise update schedule is hindered by neither the sites nor the webmasters area making the dates readily apparent – however, if the RSS feed updates are any indication then roughly only a quarter of the sites have updated in the last several months, which is further corroborated by using the ‘newer than’ search functions on the gallery listings. So, while the program is still active and regularly updating a number of their sites and their corresponding galleries, affiliates should be aware that not all of the sites enjoy the same.
As mentioned, the program does offer RSS feeds which are highly customizable. Affiliates are given several options in choosing exactly what kind of content they wish to appear in the entries, including the options to include embedded videos and/or morphing text. Unfortunately though, all of the feed entries link back to the sites, and an option to link to gallery updates is not available. This is particularly disappointing as the sites themselves all contain canonical links – which basically instruct search engines to index the ‘house’ links over those of affiliates. Were the feeds site links to already have nofollow link attributes included, or the ability to add them automatically, it would be considerably better, but alas that is not the case.
Concerning the galleries, affiliates will be pleased to know that they are quite good in terms of SEO – containing unique titles and text scene descriptions. Not only do these give the search engines something to index, but are also quite beneficial in providing a basis for writing ones own promotional copy without having to first visit the sites in the hopes of finding scene descriptions with pertinent details such as the performers name. Since the galleries are the only readily available promotional pages that lack canonical links, there being some optimization for search engines is of added benefit. However, it should be noted that the galleries are of varying quality – some are very sharp and attractive, most are decent, but a few are obviously older and pale by today’s standards for resolution.
All in all, Hushmoney is a good adult affiliate program, especially for those affiliates looking for interracial and big dick content. With a number of sites in the aforementioned niches, ongoing updates, and a variety of promotional tools, affiliates should find this program of some interest. However, it is recommended that affiliates pause to consider how best to promote the program in order to get the full benefit of their efforts.
