Cologne, Germany - February 6, 2017 - Taboola, the leading discovery platform, has inked an exclusive two-year partnership with Ströer Content Group, the leading digital media house in Germany. Ströer Content Group was recently ranked first in AGOF´s  (Working Group for Online Media Research)provider rankings after merging Ströer Digital, Interactive Media and OMS.

As part of the strategic partnership, Taboola content recommendations will first be integrated with T-Online.de and sister websites including Giga.de, Spieletipps.de und Kino.de. Subsequently, the full Discovery platform will roll out across the entire Ströer publisher network, including Taboola Newsroom for editors/writers, Taboola Native for sales teams, and Taboola Personalization for product teams.

Taboola offers a flexible technology platform for content recommendations, with excellent service that helps us to open up new opportunities in the monetization of our websites through its innovation. The great willingness of the team to lead this cooperation to success has also convinced us personally and we are very pleased to know one of the best and most innovative providers in this field, with Taboola at our side," saidMarc Schmitz, CEO of Ströer Content Group.

A newcomer to the German market, Taboola already has an impressive and growing publisher portfolio in Germany that includes WELT, MSN, Sport1 and MHS Digital GmbH.
