Can I understand two definitions like that? SEM = SEO + Google Adwords. SEM is a larger definition compared to SEO.

I think it will be interesting for you to know that Wes Render in his article has managed to describe the difference between SEO and SEM! First of all he divided internet marketing into two categories SEO which means search engine optimization and SEM - search engine marketing. If you want to have a successful website, it is necessary for you to use as SEO and SEM! So what is a difference? SEO refers to the process of improving a website's visibility by actually modifying the website itself and SEM refers to the process of driving visitors to your website by using paid advertising on other websites. I fully agree with his opinion! If you want to read more on this topic you can follow this link and read his article http://ezinearticles.com/?The-Difference-Between-SEO-and-SEM&id=6646851!

Search engine marketing or SEM, refers mainly to the text advertisements which appear at the top or on the right hand side of search engine results pages. These advertising links are purchased mainly from Google (Adwords) and Yahoo (Overture). They then in turn publish these ads on their secondary ad network as well.SEM (search engine marketing) is often used to describe acts associated with researching, submitting and positioning a Web site within search engines to achieve maximum exposure of your Web site. SEM includes things such as search engine optimization, paid listings and other search-engine related services and functions that will increase exposure and traffic to your Web site.

SEO- Search Engine Optimization   
         
SEO is the process of optimizing your web site for the purpose of getting free traffic from search engines. An optimized web site is more easily understood by Search engine crawlers, so there are more chances of ranking higher in SERPS.                                                                                   

SEM- Search Engine Marketing

So, SEM is the marketing process with a goal of getting more visibility in search engines either by getting more free traffic (SEO) or paid traffic (Paid search advertising).

I think that: The difference between SEM and SEO is simply that Search Engine Optimization is part of Search engine marketing online or Search marketing as it is widely known. Both processes aim in increasing visibility in SERP. It involves other methods as well which can get you more search engine visitors like PPC advertising. SEO is about optimizing the website property to get better rankings in the search results while SEM goes beyond SEO.
