Since our initial review of the HustlerCash adult affiliate program they have gone through some minor changes. Although one of those changes is slightly disappointing, the rest represent a shift to best capitalize on the changing adult landscape. Primarily, we are referring to an increased focus on marketing for mobile devices, as well as an expansion of their ancillary adult sites, i.e. cams, dating, VOD, and adult toy stores. However, affiliates should be heartened to know that the HustlerCash program continues to roll out brand new adult niche membership sites of the superior high quality you would expect of the Hustler brand.

The disappointing change referenced above, is that the HustlerCash program no longer offers blog-style RSS feeds. Considering that those feeds stopped updating over a year before they were pulled altogether, their absence does not represent a great loss. However, affiliates will find that since HustlerCash uses NATS they can still generate RSS feeds to stay up-to-date on the latest ad tool offerings, though those feeds are not intended, nor well suited, for direct promotion.
As mentioned, the HustlerCash program continues to launch new sites for promotion – including traditional recurring membership sites, their mobile equivalents, and secondary sites that might be described as on the periphery of adult. Obviously, each of these offers their own competitive payment structures, hence the wide range indicated above. To summarize them, though, the traditional membership sites pay 50-60% revshare or $25-30 PPS, the mobile sites also pay 50-60% revshare but the PPS option is reduced to $20-25 (the lower end being sans exit consoles). VOD, cams and dating, and the adult toy stores all use revshare models only, paying out at 25%, 20%, and 15% respectively.
Potential affiliates will also be pleased to learn that the HustlerCash program does not employ canonical links, noindex meta tags, or robots txt files to dissuade search engines from indexing pages containing affiliate IDs. Additionally, the galleries contain at least some amount of unique text that not only serve to assist in their being indexed, but may also be used as a basis for the affiliates own promotional copy. However, it should be noted that the majority of galleries appear to link to the all-inclusive Hustler site, as opposed to the individual niche sites as one might expect.
With exceptional high quality content that you might expect of the brand, ongoing updates – both in terms of content and new site offerings, and a good selection of marketing tools, HustlerCash is a very good adult affiliate program, overall. Affiliates looking for a program with a versatile lineup of adult sites to promote, or merely looking to expand their marketing to mobile device users should especially take notice of the new and improved HustlerCash.
