Outbrain is a large content recommendation engine that reaches 80% of the U.S. online population.
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Content is king.
Alyson Shontell describes Outbrain as a LinkExchange for content:
What it is: Outbrain is a leading content recommendation platform. It powers "see also" articles that show up on web pages below content. It is free if a website wants to circulate its own articles on its own pages, or websites can pay for traffic and show their articles on other sites. Outbrain splits the cost with the receiving publication. Its U.S. Chief Executive Yaron Galai says Outbrain reaches 80% of people in the U.S. online.
