Happiest of New Years!

We’re a glass half full kind of bunch, so instead of celebrating Good Riddance Day, we like to look back at the year past and celebrate our happiest moments. 

Here’s a glimpse into our Outbrain-y 2017; everything from recommendations served to Nespressos® consumed (and my, did we drink a lot of coffee).

3,235,790,536,184

Content recommendations served (above the equator!).

THREE TRILLION muhahaha (Dr. Evil laugh).

903,611,565

Conversions completed.

And this only counts the conversions that users tracked using the updated pixel... if you're an Outbrain user who hasn't set up any conversions yet, get to it!

11,274,383

Outbrain-inspired fidget spinners 

spun... spin count, that is!

4,509,901

Clicks on the most popular ad of the year.

863,320

Free Lunches. F-R-E-E.

If Outbrain wasn't already a cool enough company to work for, filling our bellies with weekly goodness certainly helps.

There's only a couple hundred people living there... but those couple hundred people loved content this year, clearly!

Largest growth in ONE region.

Nespressos® consumed.

"[Espresso] Yourself" – N.W.A.

Ping pong games played.

...with a few tournaments thrown in there to keep things exciting! Slice, slice baby.

Pounds of hummus consumed.

Pronounced "hoo-moos," not "hum-us." Are our proper Israeli roots showing, or what?

57,284

40,552

Outbrain University learning programs completed.

$30,000

Driving traffic to support organizations who were leading relief efforts. Only one of the amazing initiatives from our good OBGood committee.

Worth of free traffic donated to hurricane relief.

29,299

Video calls (excitably) attended.

Amelia stickers produced (and stuck).

She's just so darn adorable, how could we not stick her to everything?

And it keeps growing, and growing, and growing, and growing.
