    Outbrain ... as seen here on CNN.com
    See the: From around the web list.

    Here is a description that CNN gives to it's web surfers.

    To me it seems like a "Similar threads" thing ... but it links to other sites.
    What about putting it on Forum Lists and maybe at the bottom of threads ?
    seems like 8thOS tried to get it to work here.

    Anyone have any experience ?

    Do those pay per click?

    No idea.
    I see them mostly on "bigger sites".
    Never seen them on small to mid sized sites.

    I think I only seem them on TOP Newspaper websites ?

    The left column is like similar threads + important threads
    The right column would be sharing links to other forums, like a sister forum.

    I was really hyped up for Outbrain but couldn't get it to work. If one of you does, please spread the knowledge.

    That's not why I was hyped up. I was excited cause of it's star ratings feature. I don't care about their pay structure lol.

    So if you have less than 10 million page views, then you are just advertising their crap for free?

    Yup, they want you to pay large sums of $ and a high CPC rate to get your content onto high volume sites. If you are a high volume site, they'll give you a slice of the pie.

    I just don't think they'll be exposing your content as frequently as they'd lead you to believe. Essentially you will be showcasing their high roller sites and a lot of scammy links on your site for free.
