Hello does anyone know how PlentyofFish is making so much money? If its a free site how is he making 10 Million this year? Im really confused and would like to learn more about this business. They said he was making $3,300.00 from selling ads to dating sites, what does that mean?


He gets paid with ads from google. Additionally, paid dating sites give you a cut of the profits if you refer new users to them by placing ads on your website. These ads are called affiliate ads and they track where traffic and users originate and pay back the owner of that website. If Match or Yahoo Personals fails, then Markus won't make any money ironically.
