Outbrain is announcing that it has raised $35 million in new funding.
If you’ve ever read an article and found a widget at the bottom recommending stories you might also like (which can come from multiple sites), there’s a good chance those recommendations were provided by Outbrain.

The company says it has been installed on more than 100,000 sites and has a network of 700 “premium publishers” that includes CNN, Hearst, Rolling Stone, and Fast Company. It also says it serves 100 billion recommendations each month, including both organic and paid recommendations. The company makes money by including sponsored content.
