1 Search engine optimization (SEO) is a component of search engine marketing (SEM). It is the act of optimizing a website for organic or natural search engine listings. Search engine optimization is one of the most cost-effective functions of a search engine marketing campaign, but it is only one element of SEM.

Search engine marketing (SEM) is the act of marketing a website via search engines, whether by improving rank in organic or natural listings, paid or sponsored listings or a combination of both.
2 We see at times there is confusion about the difference between SEM and SEO. Actually SEO is a part of SEM. When people refer to SEM it means they are talking about paid inclusion while SEO is trying to get your site to the top of Google organically. We can say that with SEO we achieve an organic or natural flow of traffic to our websites that is not bought or paid for like we do when we pay for advertising and SEM is basically paying to get your link on Google.

3 There is a big difference between SEO and SEM. SEM (Search Engine Marketing) is a broader term; it includes all the strategies for promoting your website on the search engines. SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is a method of getting a website ranked in the organic or natural search results.

4 Search engine optimization [SEO] : SEO is slow and steady process to get your website ranked on search engines to get organic traffic. SEO process will take time but the results are for ever.

5 Searh engine Marketing [SEM] : act as marketing for search engines. if improving your rank in organic or natural or paid or sponsored are combination for both.

SEO- Search engine optimization utilizes numerous practices to increase traffic to a particular website or page. However, the best approaches to this are holistic in that they not only increase website traffic; they also increase the quality of that traffic.

SMO- Social media optimization is a relative newcomer to internet marketing, rising in use in direct correlation to this rise in popularity of social media sites. SMO consists of creating and managing profiles on social media sites and networks in order to create awareness of a brand or service.

Hello..

SEO is an organic method to increase visitors to your website. This method includes on-page, off-page optimization and PPC While SMO is basically a viral marketing technique used on social networking websites. The biggest advantage of SMO is you can expect traffic quickly in comparison to SEO.
