Reason(s) for removal: Occash, as anything other than a mirror for their Transerotica program, has finally closed. Additional info: The sites associated with Occash are now all being redirected, and all that remains of the site list are those associated with Transerotica.
Adult affiliates looking for a program with a selection of high quality exclusive sites across a range of popular niches may find Occash to be one of the best. While the Occash program has sites representing a range of popular adult niches, though they do seem to have a particular fondness for ebony babes and big butts with more sites devoted to those niches that any other. Best of all, the majority of Occash sites continue to update, and have blog-style as well as webmaster RSS feeds to provide affiliates with those updates. With fairly frequent updates across a spectrum of niche adult sites, the Occash adult affiliate program is well suited for affiliates promoting multiple adult niches in general, and ebony babes and big butts in particular.

Overall, affiliates will find much of the Occash adult affiliate program to their liking, however there are a couple of points of which they should be aware. First, although there appears to be a console-free option that pays slightly less on rebills at 50% rather than 60%, affiliates would do well to go with the higher payout. Perhaps our understanding of ‘console-free’ is different from theirs, but we do not expect to find any of the ‘special offer’ popup messages when trying to close the page – not even the join pages – when we have opted for the ‘console-free’ tour option. If affiliates are going to get the exit consoles anyway, they might as well get that extra 10% on rebills.
Second, while not indicative of all of the sites, some of the Occash sites do contain canonical links. As such, affiliates will want to check the source code before deciding whether or not to link directly to the sites in question, or whether to add nofollow link attributes to their links should they decide to do so. Again, the use of canonical links seems more the exception than the rule, but checking the source code to be sure only requires an extra second or two. Other than the occasional use of canonical links, affiliates will not find any other indexing tricks such as noindex tags that appear in the affiliates pages HTML but not in those pages without affiliate IDs, or robots txt files to instruct search engines to not index pages with affiliate identifiers.
Third, while the galleries do contain unique titles, that is about the extent of any sort of SEO for them. In other words, the galleries do not contain any unique text in the form of scene descriptions which affiliates might use to base their own promotional copy, nor do they contain any meta elements such as keywords or descriptions that would otherwise help facilitate their inclusion in search engines. However, since blog-style RSS feeds are available, affiliates who do not mind spending an extra minute or two finding the corresponding entries can look there or on the sites for scene descriptions to spin for their own promotional use. Unfortunately though, the blogs also contain third party popunders and exit consoles, regardless of using the console-free linking option, which can make their browsing a bit tiresome.
Despite the minor issues outlined above, affiliates may find the Occash adult affiliate program to be one of the better programs for ongoing updates and promotional tools for sites across a range of diverse niches. Likewise, those affiliates looking for a sponsor with multiple sites in the ebony babe and/or big butt niches will definitely want to check out the Occash adult affiliate program.
