Oxylabs is an API solution service for large-scale data acquisition. As of today, Oxylabs has 1,000+ clients around the world.
With a growing market demand in China, the Oxylabs team wanted to prioritise Search Engine Marketing (SEM) to scale, fast.

One of Oxylab’s primary SEM objectives for their website in China is raising brand awareness and increasing traffic.
In any other market, achieving this would be relatively straightforward enough.
That is, except for China, where the Oxylabs website took 20.8 seconds to load on average.
As any marketer would know, it would be challenging, if not impossible, to drive effective referral traffic to a non-performant website. Let alone, to generate leads.
Comms8, the award-winning marketing agency behind Oxylabs, joined forces with Chinafy to deliver Oxylabs a more performant and SEM-friendly website in China.
And in just 2 weeks…
Chinafy optimised the Oxylabs website to load 280% faster in China.
Comparing the original website against a Chinafy version of the site in Shanghai, the average Page Complete times are respectively -
Before Chinafy: 20.8 seconds
After Chinafy: 7.5 seconds
Measuring Chinafy Deliverables
We deliver improvement across speed or deliverability in China compared to the website. This is an objective users test and confirmed directly during the User Acceptance Testing (UAT).
Keep in mind, though, that the Chinafy site doesn’t generally exceed the loading time of the site outside of China, though there are exceptions like The House Collective website.
You can see the raw data points below:
