Click on the question mark as shown in the picture and this will pop up:
Click the outbrain link and it will take you to it's main page:

I'd recommend registering for an account.
Click the box as shown in the picture and fill out common account information and click register.

Click Check now to claim the blog.

Click submit and that's it. You can add more blogs to outbrain if you want, but were done for 1.
