    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.SEM also includes any banner advertising or ad placement advertising at authority related sites.Search engine optimization or SEO refers to improving a web sites' natural and organic ranking in the search engine results page. This more affordable method is often slow and new web sites may take up to a year to achieve decent rankings in Google.

    Hi,

    SEO might be called "natural/organic search marketing." Logically, SEO is simply a part of SEM (right along paid search marketing, the other part). SEO and paid search marketing have a common basis in keyword analysis and strategy. They share the same goal: to promote the website to the first page of Google, but they achieve this in two different ways: SEO via organic listings, paid search marketing via Ads and paid inclusion.

    Hope this it will help you!

    Many people misunderstand the goal of search engine optimization as distinct from search engine marketing. Applying SEM expectations to SEO can lead to significant frustration and disappointment.

    I am going to start with SEO, as it is a part of SEM. SEO is the act of optimising the HTML and other content of your website for relevant, targeted key phrases in order to attain higher natural listings than competing websites. SEO provides a cheaper long term solution for increased qualified traffic and generates customer inquiries that ultimately convert to sales.

    Hi, friend
    I think no SEM campaign is complete without SEO. Moreover, since the purpose of SEO is to make the site better for both search engines and users, you may find that it will suffice on its own. In any case, the advantages of SEO over the other aspects of SEM make it clear that, even if you are going to spend additional money on advertising and paid placement, SEO must be your first step in promoting your site.

    Search engine marketing (SEM) refers to the short text advertisements which generally appear at the top or down the right hand side of search engine results. These are often labelled as "sponsored Links" or "sponsored results".

    Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is defined as the process of building pages in a manner which enables the pages to rank highly in 'algorithmically' determined search results, which are generally displayed on the left hand side of the page. The 'algorithmic' results are independently determined by the search engine's own mathematical algorithm, and are based on relevance to the search phrase. Search engines use complex mathematical algorithms to determine the relevance of indexed pages for a particular search phrase.
