Big Week for The Blog Recommendation Folks

We had a big week at Outbrain. A new site launched with several updates and enhancements as well as upgrades to the widget kept us all busy. Our R&D team did a great job and our evangelist bloggers were quick to point out tweaks. Thanks. Allen from Centernetworks broke the news, Adam Ostrow from Mashable and Frank Gruber also blogged it. The home page really says it all in that we are squarely focused on ratings and content recommendations. Some think of us as the blog rating folks, but really we are the recommendation folks. We will post more about the "how and why" but this is really the beginning as more and more bloggers like Allen start to see an increase in page views and new referrals from using the Outbrain rating and recommendation widget. Please, tell us what you think about the new site keeping in mind that criticism is valued over compliments.
