A few days before posting our initial review of the SpookyCash program we had written that another adult affiliate program was the best that we had found for hardcore emo and alt girl content. While that was true at the time, we are pleased to say that we have since found another high quality program of similar content in SpookyCash. SpookyCash also offers affiliates the option of using CCBill for tracking, sales, billing and payment in addition to giving the option of using Epoch. While this program does not provide affiliates with content to build their own galleries or FLV tube clips, they do offer a hosted blog and hosted TGP with the affiliate IDs in every link.

Affiliates will note that the SpookyCash program provides their affiliates with a decent selection of tools to assist in their promotion. However, it should also be noted that although the sites do contain video content, the promotional material appears to be exclusively limited to high quality photo content. In addition to affiliates being able to access the latest gallery offerings via RSS feeds, they may also choose to make use the hosted blog feed. Although the gallery feeds offer little more than single thumbnail images and brief descriptions for each gallery update where the hosted blog offers larger images and is more text heavy, the gallery feeds update far more frequently.
It also bears mentioning that although the SpookyCash program uses CCBill, the site links do not have those long string URLs rife with boolean characters. However, as is typical with most CCBill programs, visitors are tracked via cookies and the affiliate ID is dropped from the URL. For this reason, we typically recommend affiliates limit their linking to galleries or other tools, or consider using nofollow link attributes when linking directly to the sites. However, another common shortcoming with many CCBill programs, which SpookyCash unfortunately shares, is that the galleries generally lack any appreciable unique text. Between the two, this means that affiliates are unlikely to see much, if any, direct search engine traffic to the SpookyCash properties, and affiliates should instead focus their efforts on getting their own unique blog posts or what-have-you indexed.
In short, SpookyCash is a very good hardcore emo and alt-girl program – every bit as good as any other program in the niche out there, though they have their strengths and weaknesses. Rather than picking just one, we see no problem in promoting them concurrently. In fact, we think it would be an error not to do so.
