    I've used outbrain a while ago and it performed well (unfortunately I can't really remember any numbers, sorry)
    However, I felt like it took some of the traffic away from my site and so I stopped using it.

    Exactly this is what they do .

    But OP, if you really want to use it then use adsense + Taboola or adsense + revcontent .

    I love adsense because in some niches they pay super high, which you can really bank hard on. But it depends niche to niche, my adsense sites are always on $1+ CPC keywords. Haven't tried taboola or outbrain but I don't think they pay as much as adsense

    I was getting $0.005 with Taboola.

    But this was around 2015. Have things improved, because that's clearly not worth bothering with.

    Outbrain is good if you have an in depth funnel created, hitting them with your hard offer doesn't work as good as adsense imo...

    You can use both.
    If you do some investigation you will find out that Revcontent is much better than Taboola.
    Also, you might consider Propeller ads pop under plus Adsense. Try to google that, there is one nice case study about almost doubling profit with that method.

    For it to be worth it I'd be wanting around $1.50 rpm. I think Taboola was doing around 1/10 of Adsense when I tried it.
