Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in search engines via the "natural" or un-paid ("organic" or "algorithmic") search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine's users. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search, academic search, news search and industry-specific vertical search engines.
As an Internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engines work, what people search for, the actual search terms typed into search engines and which search engines are preferred by their targeted audience. Optimizing a website may involve editing its content and HTML and associated coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines. Promoting a site to increase the number of backlinks, or inbound links, is another SEO tactic.

Search engine marketing, (SEM), is a form of Internet marketing that seeks to promote websites by increasing their visibility in search engine result pages (SERPs) through the use of paid placement, contextual advertising, and paid inclusion. Search engine optimization (SEO) "optimizes" website content to achieve a higher ranking in search results, for example, by incorporating specific keywords or links associated with the website. Depending on the context, SEM can be an umbrella term for various means of marketing a website including SEO, or it may contrast with SEO, focusing on just paid components.

Hi..flocks.. ;)

According to SEO point of view,  SEM is the all encompassing broad phrase that includes SEO as well as paid search activities such as Google AdWords purchases.  SEO, on the other hand, is simply a subset of SEM. Some people mistakenly think that SEM means PPC and SEO means organic SEO but it is not true.

The terms “search engine optimization” (SEO) and “search engine marketing” (SEM) interchangeably. Though they are both marketing techniques, they do have definite differences. SEO is the process of improving a web site’s rankings in search results of search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing. These listings are also known as “organic” listings. SEM involves driving website traffic via paid advertising, such as PPC (Pay-Per-Click) ads. SEO helps improve organic search results while SEM focuses more on advertising.   :P

Hi.... friends.!!

Actually SEM is the mixture of PayPerClick and search engine optimization strategies, rendering it appropriate for the internet marketers to obtain instant outcomes.

In other word, SEO is the process of improving the SERP of a website  in major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing. These listings are also known as “organic” listings. But SEM involves driving website traffic via paid advertising, such as PPC (Pay-Per-Click) ads. SEO focuses on improving organic  search result while  SEM focuses on advertising.
