Outbrain Adds Another 1.1 Billion Monthly Pageviews to its Supply Footprint
NEW YORK, Sept. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Outbrain Inc. (Nasdaq: OB), a leading recommendation platform for the open web, announced today it was selected by dmg media as its exclusive recommendation partner.
Beginning this week, Outbrain will provide a discovery feed of organic and paid for content recommendations across web, mobile, and video formats to the readers of dmg media’s digital newsbrand portfolio, including: dailymail.co.uk, dailymail.com.au (Australia), dailymail.com (US), Metro.co.uk, Thisismoney.co.uk and the Daily Mail app; alongside Harmsworth Media’s inews.co.uk.
In a multi-year deal, the above-mentioned digital newsbrands will leverage Outbrain’s core optimization and recommendation technology, Smartlogic, to drive greater value and user engagement amongst their audience. Smartlogic uses AI and machine learning, aiming to drive more relevant reader experiences within their feeds and better publisher outcomes.

“This is an opportunity to drive significant value for both our digital properties and Outbrain’s advertising clients.”
