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.

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!

goal of Search Engine Optimization is to optimize the crawler's ability to understand your site structure and content.
Search engine marketing is a hot topic among those who have business Web sites. And for good reason. The majority of Internet users use a search engine to find what they want.
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.
