Difference between SEO,SEM and SMO?

Search engine optimization & search engine marketing both the terms actually refer to two different parts of the same marketing scheme.SEM is a much broader term than SEO, and actually includes SEO as one of its techniques. SEM is all that a company can do to advertise itself on a search engine, including paid inclusion and other ads.

SEO - Is optimizing the page to be easily found and indexable by search engines. This is everything from content writing to getting backlinks.

SEM - Is bidding on keywords through tools like Google AdWords. This can be extremely expensive and time consuming, and should probably only be a short term solution until your site is performing well organically.

SMO - Is setting up and participating in various Social Media sites, like Facebook, Digg, Delicious, etc. The purpose here is to build commuinities of fans and spread the word on your updated content.

Hi Friends,

SEO basically stands for Search Engine Optimization. SEO is process of getting traffic from the free and natural listings on search engines. SEO is a technique to increase the visibility of your site in search engine.

Social Media Optimization is a new term. SMO tactics can drive huge amounts of people to a website and can also determine whether a startup, website or idea will make it or not. It involves driving traffic to a website through new channels because search engines aren't the only sites that drive big traffic anymore. Websites such as Digg, Delicious, Facebook these are all websites that can now be used as places to put out your marketing message.

SEM stands for Search Engine Marketing. It is the process of gaining traffic from or visibility on search engines. Search engine marketing is overall process of combining the two processes of search engine optimisation and pay per click advertising. Search Engine Marketing is great way to market your company's products or services to online users in a direct and relevant manner.

Thanks and Regards

SEM is relatively more broader term as compare to SMO and SEO. SEM includes all the techniques of internet marketing related to search engines and also includes SEO in it. Generally people consider SEM as paid advertising, however it not true.

SMO is something which is related to internet marketing techniques using social media networks.
