There are many ways in which website makes money as they offer free services. From advertising on their site to offering a paid plan that offers more than the free portion to target based hits on Google, ways in which to make money can be found here from a very good list provided by Forbes: http://www.forbes.com/sites/quora/2013/02/26/how-do-free-services-on-the-web-make-money/

Please can you elaborate what you mean ' offering a paid plan that offers more than the free portion to target based hits on Google '

I would be very grateful if you could explain the meaning of the above phrase in detail

A website can offer free parts to view their site but then in order to see more, you would have to pay a subscription. Newspapers today when you read them online offer the same day free but if you want to read previous articles, then you have to pay. As for Google, website will pay to have their site show up higher in rankings on Google search engine. While a website may have to pay, the results will be more money coming in to their site when bigger amounts of users visit their site. So some spending by the website but more money will come in by larger amount of visitors. The other ways to make money can be found on the link I provided by Forbes.
