    A subset of SEM is SEO. A subset of SEM is PPC. A subset of SEM is Link Development. A subset of SEM is SMO (facebook ..etc..). A subset of SEM is traditional adverts. A subset of SEM is Paid inclusion.

    Search Engine Marketing SEM covers all of these areas. To truely develop website potential all these areas (SEM) must be covered

    SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization while SEM means Search Engine Marketing. SEM is a broad term and SEO is just a part of it.

    SEO is organic as well as free, SEM is paid, the ads shown at the right side are inorganic & we have to pay to Google for every single click.

    Just thought I'd throw this in even though every other man and his dog are saying it; SEM is usually PPC (Paid per click) and usually requires a large investment for the more competitive keywords. SEO is organic search, and is NOT PPC - SEO is preferred as it usually saves on money ;)

    SEM: Search engine marketing, is a type of Internet marketing that seeks to promote websites by increasing their visibility in search engine result pages through different forms which include paid placement, contextual advertising, and paid inclusion.

    SEO: Search engine optimization is the process of improving the visibility of a website in search engines via the natural search results, which includes different techniques like changes to the HTML source code of a site, editing in site content, working on Title, and keywords etc.

    Seo focuses on getting organic traffic from search engines

    SEM is more like pay per click & social media type of stuff...
