    Social Media Marketing or SMM is all about promoting your business by using various social media channels like twitter, facebook or linked in.. SMM is definitely the order of the day.

    SEO or search engine optimization is concerned with optimizing your website to rank higher in search engine ranking positions. It is also concerned with making your website more visible and gain higher traffic.

    SEO SMM
    Search engine optimization is keyword targeted with text as its main strength. SMM – Social media marketing uses images/video/podcasts/audio to woo people.
    comparatively takes longer to gain popularity than SMM.. If it clicks, there can be enormous growth in a very short time..
    Viral marketing is done through link building (both incoming and outgoing) Viral marketing is done by creating a fan base and by actively participating in
    communities.
    SEO is keyword targeted where text/content is the king SMM is people targeted where relationship building is the key.
    SEO is algorithm based. You need to understand the mechanism of the machine. SMM is psychology based. You need to understand people to make a mark.
    SEO is content driven. SMM is popularity driven.

    Social media marketing is brother of SEO & they are new face of online marketing. All the business owners has website where they display their products or services. Reason behind this is that they want people to know about their business & talk about their business. So, business owners do SEO to make people to know about them & they do SMM to let people talk about them.

    Thanks,
    Rajni

    Hello...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. and Social media marketing is an addition to personal, small business, corporate, and non-profit organizations’ integrated marketing communications plans. Andreas Kaplan and Michael Haenlein define social media as "a group of Internet-based applications that build on the ideological and technological foundations of Web 2.0, and that allow the creation and exchange of user-generated content.

    SMM (Social Media Marketing) is the part of SEO (Search Engine Optimization). In case of Seo we promote the site on search engine and in case of SMM we create our profile on social networking sites like facebook, twitter, and youtube.
