    SEM (Search Engine Marketing) relates to all forms of marketing through search engines, which encompasses both search engine optimization and advertising (such as google adwords). SMO (Social Media Optimization) is about optimizing your content for social media in such a way that it encourages content to go viral which in turn grows your brand and followers through social media.

    Search engine marketing (SEM) is a form of Internet marketing that involves the promotion of websites by increasing their visibility in search engine results pages (SERPs) through optimization (on-page optimization & off-page optimization) as well as through advertising (paid placements, contextual advertising, and paid inclusions).
    Social Media Optimization (SMO) is the methodization of social media activity with the intent of attracting unique visitors to website content.
