All these websites make money and are part of the online business. Not only online shopping websites, but information websites that give resume examples, sample cover letters, medical information, make up tips; recipes, etc. are all part of online business. These websites do not sell anything directly to us, but they work and earn online. Confused? Let us discuss this further.
Consider any ecommerce website firstly. You buy goods. The website owner does not manufacture these goods. He only sells the goods manufactured by someone else. For every purchase made via his/her website, he gets a fee. This is how the ecommerce website owner makes money.
Besides these, there are many other informational websites as mentioned above. We resort to the net for different kinds of information. These websites do not sell any product to us, but provides us the information that we need. These websites also make money. It makes money by the number of visitors the site gets, the advertisements placed on the website, etc.

The impact is such, that today people prefer communicating via the internet medium with their friends and colleagues. They stay in touch using the famous social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter etc. These are also the latest modes of online business.
