We’d be delighted if you shared the love by referring us to a friend.

We’re even offering up to €10K for your referral as an added incentive.

Our rewards are tiered, so whatever the size of the publication you refer, you will earn.

53% of mobile visits are abandoned for pages that take longer than

Marfeel was founded by two people that love technology. And this love echoes throughout the whole company.

The amount of money you earn depends on the amount of traffic the publisher has per month:

  • Above 500k visits: 500 EUR
  • Above 1M visits: 1,000 EUR
  • Above 5M visits: 5,000 EUR
  • Above 10M visits: 10,000 EUR

You will be paid this sum after the publication has been live with Marfeel for a month.

Terms and Conditions: 

Ideal Marfeelizable sites are professional blogs, news websites, and content-based websites with limited complexity. These include websites such as current Marfeel clients Euronews, El Confidencial, and The Washington Times.

By visits, we mean total visits (sessions) in the Marfeel platform during a 30-day time period. Visits will be validated 30 days after a referral has gone live. The amount will be paid 30 days after a publication has been live with Marfeel for 30 days, and after receipt of the corresponding invoice. Marfeel reserves the right not to pay the fee if the performance of the new publication falls below industry standards.

Sites that take 5 seconds to load when compared to those that load in 19 seconds have 70% more session time and 35% less bounce rate.

Lastly, the compelling nature and magnetism of blazing mobile speed can't be argued. Who doesn't like the lightning-quick page speed of  Google AMP  and  Facebook Instant Articles ?

Together, let's make 
better mobile experiences.

Here's what you need to know

Discover the Marfeel power


Historically, Marfeel served a lot of the mobile site resources from its infrastructure to optimize speed and performance. However, a publisher's Marfeel mobile version was still dependent on assets that were hosted and delivered by the publisher's infrastructure.

How Marfeel takes publishers to the pinnacle of speed and smoothness

Like images and media that make up  80% of the total bytes downloaded .

With the innovative changes Marfeel has introduced to their infrastructure, Marfeel premium partners get the fastest and smoothest sites available.

What Marfeel premium publishers get

Tests and audits

With Marfeel's infrastructure changes, publishers' mobile sites now score optimally in testmysite.withgoogle.com even when testing on 3g connections.

Speed alone however, isn't enough. Marfeel's CDN package isn't only about downloading the first byte as fast as hell, it's also about delivering a smooth UX and fluid interaction. To ensure that Marfeel delivers the smoothest UX possible, they use Google's Lighthouse test to continually assess themselves, where optimal scores can only be achieved by optimizing JavaScript.

When compared to the world's leading publishers, Marfeel significantly outscores them. There is also a reverse correlation that can be observed with large publishers: Any publication that scores very highly in the PWA (Progressive Web App) category, scores low in Performance and vice versa. Marfeel however, scores optimally in both.

Overcoming the challenge. The reason for this disparity in the Lighthouse test is that to put the features in place that define PWAs, a lot of JavaScript (JS) is needed. The Performance portion of the Lighthouse test measures that the JS is not being used, meaning that the more features in place for PWAs, the less optimized a publisher's solution will be. The more features a site has, the lower it scores in Performance. 

Getting high scores in both PWA and Performance is a difficult challenge because they normally cannibalize each other. Marfeel however is able to achieve optimal scores in both by optimizing JavaScripts while delivering mobile's latest tech and features, like service workers.

This means that premium publishers get the full sophistication and potential of Marfeel's tech, made possible through our partnership with   Fastly.

Marfeel also covers the cost of the Premium CDN Package for their premium partners for both their mobile and desktop traffic. We said we were putting our money where our mouth is, and we meant it.

  • PWA
  • Performance
  • Device detection on the server-side

    In the past, device detection was performed on the publisher-side with a JavaScript snippet. Marfeel is an adaptive web solution that promotes the creation of multiple, highly optimized versions of a publisher's website. Depending on the device being used, one version or another must be rendered.

    Marfeel now detects devices at the server level. This means that the right version to display to the user is executed on the first roundtrip and pushed "down the wire,"  shaving several seconds off loading time and getting Marfeel closer to their goal of 0.7s.  

    Additionally, moving the activation logic from JavaScript to the server also avoids sending unnecessary and unoptimized assets meant for desktop. Some browsers start rendering and pre-fetching heavier resources for desktop when a user is browsing on their mobile. By detecting devices on the server-side, Marfeel eliminates these external techniques used by browsers to further reduce Marfeel's loading time.

    Optimize media assets

    As Marfeel no longer has any dependencies on publisher servers, the first request is able to return fully optimized assets. The latest technology is used like WebP; a new image format that is  26% smaller than PNGs  and 34% smaller than JPEGs , while providing lossless compression for images on the web.

    Marfeel also delivers responsive media. This refers to rescaling media depending on the device the reader is using which includes both different-sized images and media that's optimized differently.      

    With all these infrastructure changes, Marfeel also optimizes assets with Brotli. Brotli is the newest and most cutting-edge version of ZIP. It's a compression algorithm invented by Google and used by Marfeel that can save up to 26% of space when compared to Zopfli.

    Remove unnecessary DNS resolutions

    Traditionally, publisher servers were also responsible for the time to first byte - meaning how fast a connection can be established to respond to a request, which includes DNS resolution times and an SSL handshake. 

    To display the Marfeel mobile version, Marfeel had to make two DNS resolutions. One was made by the publisher server when the first request was made and a mobile user was detected.

    With the Marfeel Premium CDN Package and server-side device detection, Marfeel removes an entire DNS resolution and makes the only one that's needed in 50ms.

    Servers as close to users as possible

    To deliver optimal speed and performance, a publisher's servers need to be as close as possible to their readers.

    For example, if you're an American-based publication with European readers, a user accessing your content from London would need a trans-oceanic connection that takes two seconds in some cases, but can also take three or four to make a round trip to the origin server.

    To bring a publisher's content as close to their audience as possible, the Marfeel CDN package equips publishers with POPs (points of presence) all over the world. For a comprehensive overview of Fastly's network map and strategic points of presence locations, see the Fastly POP locations article.

    Just being fast for users on 4G and in well-connected areas isn't enough. A publisher's audience is across the globe which means you have to be fast everywhere especially considering 70% of cellular connections will occur at 3G speeds or slower until 2020, according to Google.
