    What is the difference between SEO and SEM?

    While some people use SEO and SEM interchangeably, SEO (search engine optimization) is actually a part of SEM (search engine marketing).

    SEO refers to the process of using on and off page factors (typically free) to get your web pages ranked for your chosen keywords in order to get more search engine traffic to your sites. SEM takes it a step farther to include using paid search engine listings and paid inclusion to get more traffic to your websites.

    SEM is a broader term than SEO. Where SEO aims to provide better organic search results, SEM uses the search engines to advertise your website or business to Internet customers and send a more targeted traffic to your Web site.

    No confusion SEO is used to optimize the search engine to increase the traffic to your website through On-page and Off-page optimization. Whereas SEM is used only to advertise your website in the internet through various techniques the only purpose of SEM is increasing the traffic through marketing in the internet.
