Reason(s) for removal: Unfortunately, SilentBucks has announced that they will soon be closing. Additional info: “It comes with great sorrow that I’m announcing that Silent Bucks and it’s 7 pay sites will be shutting down effective September 14th. I’ll keep the members areas live as long as the current members are active. I’ll keep the promotional materials live on Silent Bucks so you can look up the material you will need to remove from your affiliate websites. I’m including a link to all 7 pay sites so you can remove these links over the next two weeks.”
SilentBucks is a modest sized CCBill adult affiliate program whose content would best be described as fitting the teen niche – though the sites do offer some variety along those lines. Four of the programs seven teen related sites are devoted to featured girls, two to amateur self-shot and ex-girlfriend type content – one of which expressly for girls who are more chunky than the typical fare, and the last for college party type content. Best of all, the majority of the programs sites do continue to update, although three of the featured girl sites appear to have already run their course, which is to be expected.

For promotion of their sites, SilentBucks provides several tools to assist affiliates. For each site, affiliates will find link codes, hosted galleries, and banners of course, as well as a POTD (Picture Of The Day) and GOTD (Gallery Of The Day). While RSS feeds are available, affiliates should note that they consist of an updating list of gallery links and nothing else; basically serving as a means for affiliates to grab the latest gallery updates. Additionally, affiliates will find what SilentBucks refers to as a ‘portal site’, a hosted TGP that links out to galleries all containing the affiliates ID. Unfortunately though, the entire SilentBucks program is rather devoid of unique text, so affiliates are pretty much on their own when it comes to drafting ones own promotional copy.
For the most part SilentBucks is a good adult affiliate program for a variety of teen related content. Four of the sites continue to update, and a decent variety of promotional tools are provided.
