Traffic Pimps is the newly re-branded adult affiliate program formerly known as Cherry Pimps. Affiliates should be heartened to learn that this is not just a change in name alone, either. Affiliates already familiar with the program may notice that the list of sites for promotion has been pared down, though several new niche sites with the XXX TLD have been added – and since removed. But what we were most pleased to see was a drastic improvement of their promotional tool updates with regularly added hosted galleries and downloadable content. Notice the use of the past tense? Unfortunately, we have since seen the promotional tool updates come to a screeching halt – again – as well as the removal of any video clips previously provided for affiliate promotion.

Existing affiliates don’t have to do a thing to enjoy the changes that have come with the re-branding. The old Cherry Pimps site is basically a mirror for the new Traffic Pimps site, so existing affiliates can continue to login there for stats, tools, and whatnot. Though, if affiliates prefer, they can login at the new site with the same credentials they have been using. Isn’t it nice when programs do things the way they should be done? Additionally, although the program has dropped some sites from their list of sites for promotion, those that we checked continue to credit the affiliate.
Fortunately, it appears as if the members area content does continue to update, so members will have reason to renew their monthly memberships. We are also pleased to inform that the sites are without any of the indexing tricks many programs use to curb affiliate results from appearing in search engines. In other words, no canonical links, robots files, or noindex meta tags on pages containing affiliate IDs.
All in all, we were very pleased with the changes realized by the Traffic Pimps program, and thought affiliates would be as well. That was until the promo tool updates stopped. Now, affiliates are going to have to put in some effort.
