How We’re Benefiting Publishers by Advancing the Open Web for Advertisers

Onyx: Advancing the Open Web for Publishers

Throughout Outbrain’s 15-year heritage, we’ve continuously built cutting edge technology that maximizes the value of ever-changing audience interactions on the open web. 

Our direct relationships with publishers and strong demand business uniquely positions us as a leading advertising platform – one that helps brands and media owners create meaningful connections with their audiences and drive business impact.

Today, we’re excited to introduce you to Onyx by Outbrain™, an innovative open-web solution designed to drive stronger brand impact by optimizing for user attention.

This offering is fueled by Outbrain’s powerful AI technology, which is continuously processing over 1 billion engagement signals per minute to predict when users are ready to take action. We’re now using that proprietary technology to answer a pertinent market need: understanding and optimizing moments of consumer attention. 

Onyx is our solution to drive greater attention and corresponding impact for brands across the open web. In tandem, it’s our solution to expand and evolve the value we bring to our long-standing publisher partners, who’ve trusted us to balance sustainable monetization with quality editorial engagement for 15+ years. 

Onyx will bring publishers rich, quality demand, primarily across video and high-impact display experiences, to help tap into the full potential of open-web advertising budgets with one partner across awareness, consideration, and performance.
