SEO is the process of gaining traffic from ‘free’, ‘organic’ or ‘natural’ listings on search engines. It includes techniques like link building, directory submission etc.

SMO, on the flip side, is the process of promoting your website on social media platforms. It includes techniques like social networking, social bookmarking submission, blogging etc.

SMO
- low cost

- organic traffic
- generate business through leads.

SEO is you want to make money that is why you rank your site.
SMO is you want to build a community like social network and first build authority.

I understand it like this.
Hope it helps you.

SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

Comparatively the more costly form of optimization, especially in the initial stages of setting up the SEO frame work for your project, it is an expensive affair
The traffic you receive from your SEO efforts is huge and consistent. You continue to receive the traffic based on your SERP (search engine rank positions). If you have higher ranks, you have huge traffic.

SEO is an ongoing activity that needs to be continuously performed to make sure you are on the top. In short SEO is a permanent fix to your search engine traffic.

SMO (Social Media Optimization)

You could identify SMO as a quick fix when compared to SEO. SMO is all about huge traffic spikes in short time, it does not require and wait time for the search engine bots to index your page. It directly fires your messages to the potential visitors.

Some more points

        * Primary SEO efforts are for Google, Yahoo and Bing
        * There are many but the Top SM websites are: Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Stumble upon, Technorati etc.
        * SMO is all about social networking and building a good follower base is important.
        * SEO requires no networking efforts, It is all about quality PR and link building.

 Social media includes activities such as blogging, book marking, tagging, RSS feeds and Video and Photo sharing. It is basically a viral marketing technique used on social networking websites. The biggest advantage of SMO (Social Media Optimization) is you can expect traffic quickly in comparison to SEO. This refers to all the methods that can be used to create publicity and attract traffic to your website using the social media. The social media include Facebook, twitter and MySpace and many more.

The traffic you receive from your SEO efforts is huge and consistent. You continue to receive the traffic based on your SERP (search engine rank positions). If you have higher ranks, you have huge traffic. SEO activities are on-page submission and off page submission. The main purpose of the increase the exposure of specific keywords to increase website visibility.

Thanks and Regards

SEO means Search Engine Optimization

SEO strategies seek to obtain top organic search rankings for specific keywords and phrases. This is accomplished by the two primary components of On-Page and Off-Page optimization. On-page refers to the usage of keywords directly on a web page, such as the content of the page, the meta data, categories, tags, alternate image tags and descriptions and SEO plugin data.

Off-page SEO refers primarily to building links and developing content through article marketing, blogging, press release distribution, document sharing, private blog networking, guest writing, forum posting, social bookmarking and sharing, video submissions and more.

SMO means Social Media Optimization
Social media optimization refers to the process of creating accounts on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and Digg and then optimizing that content so that users can find your products or services based upon search terms, categories, groups, postings or other user-network specific commonalities. The primary purpose of SMO for businesses is to improve brand awareness and increase brand loyalty.

SEO works by optimizing the structure and content of a Web page for a set of determined keywords so that it is viewed as reputable and valuable by the search engines. SEO also relies on maximizing the quality and quantity of incoming links to your site.
Social media optimization is the integral part of online reputation management...It includes blog commenting,bookmarks on social networking sites like facebook etc.
