Reason(s) for removal: Muffia no longer exists as a standalone adult affiliate program. Additional info: They have been rolled into Nasty Dollars, who in turn have been rolled into Adult Force, AKA Mindgeek, AKA Manwin.
Muffia is a good, albeit small, adult affiliate program by the same folks behind Nasty Dollars. While the quality of exclusive content is top-notch, affiliates should be aware that half of the already small number of sites have not seen an update in the better part of a year. However, there are two main reasons why affiliate webmasters should consider joining the Muffia adult affiliate program: Muffia is not one of the ‘big names’ so the web is not already saturated with their content, and along those same lines Muffia vigorously defends their copyrights – meaning they actively pursue litigation against tubes and file sharing sites. What this means for the affiliate is that the Muffia content cannot legally be found anyplace else.

One chief advantage the Muffia adult affiliate program has over their big sister program is that while Nasty Dollars employs canonical linking, Muffia does not. Furthermore, nowhere will you find robots txt files, nofollow or noindex link attributes to dissuade the search engines from indexing the affiliates links in favor of those without affiliate ID’s. Affiliates should also take note that while gallery feeds are available, they are similar to those of the parent program in that they contain long title’s and thumbs that link to the latest galleries, but no other unique text. This is partly remedied by most galleries containing the unique text scene descriptions to assist webmasters in writing their own promotional copy. I imagine this is another effort on the part of the Muffia adult affiliate program to keep their content from becoming saturated by amateur bloggers who use RSS feeds with feed aggregators to build countless numbers of rss fed splogs with little to no unique content.
In short, if you are an affiliate looking for a good program with quality content that is somewhat unique and under-saturated, then I suggest checking out the Muffia adult affiliate program. Be aware, however, that promoting this program requires a modicum of effort as not too many tools are provided for the feed it and forget it crowd to take advantage of.
