zBuckz is the largest and most established of three disparate adult affiliate programs that together make up the Panoramic Pacific Network. This program would best be described as fitting the gay niche, with special emphasis on gay Asian content. Additionally, many of the sites, even those that are not particularly devoted to gays of the Asian persuasion, offer tours in other languages – mainly Japanese, but there is also one Chinese language tour and a couple of French language tours as well. Affiliates may also be pleased to note that although the program’s two sister programs have closed as stand alone programs, their sites can still be promoted through zBUCKz.

As mentioned, zBUCKz is the largest of three adult affiliate programs that make up the Panoramic Pacific Network, offering more sites and tools than the other two. Affiliates of zBUCKz can also promote the sites of their two defunct sister programs: Glamour Buckz (Social Glamour) for softcore featured girls from the UK and Jbuckz (Piss Japan TV, Sex Japan TV, and Voyeur Japan TV) for straight Asian content – as well. Furtuntely, the zBUCKz program includes all of the promotional tools for the other two, which at first seemed redundant, but is beneficial now that they have closed as distinct stand-alone programs.
The zBUCKz adult affiliate program was the only program of the three to offer mobile tours, hosted blogs and high quality RSS feeds for direct affiliate promotion. While RSS feeds were technically available for the other two programs, they were artifacts of NATS and not intended – nor particurly well suited – for direct affiliate promotion. Additionally, the galleries of the zBUCKz program are superior to most of the rest in terms of containing unique text scene descriptions. Not only do these descriptions offer an SEO benefit by giving the search engines something to index, but also affiliates might spin or otherwise use as a basis for drafting their own promotional copy. Speaking of SEO, we are also pleased to point out that the zBUCKz program does not make use of the shady indexing tricks for which we typically check – i.e., no canonical links, noindex meta tags, or robots files to limit affiliate pages from getting indexed.
As the zBUCKz adult affiliate programs main area of focus is gay Asian content, affiliates promoting that micro-niche will likely find this program particularly attractive, especially given that the program continues to develop and offers several of the more popular promotional tools. Additionally, this program also rounds out their offerings with sites of gay content that is not strictly Asian, as well as alternate tours in select languages.
