    SEO is a processes of optimizing your website/blog in which the website owners follow certain steps that help optimize their website, which in-turn helps search engines rank the websites better.

    EM is a wider term than SEO, and is used to circumcise different options available. This process of getting traffic can be either free(SEO) or paid(PPC).

    SEO is essentially a component of the larger category, SEM. According to Google’s Knowledge Graph, search engine optimization is “the process of maximizing the number of visitors to a particular website by ensuring that the site appears high on the list of results returned by a search engine.”

    According to Wikipedia, “Search engine marketing is a form of Internet marketing that involved the promotion of websites by increasing their visibility in search engine results pages (SERPS) through optimization and advertising.” SEM includes SEO tactics, as well as several other search marketing tactics.

    SEO - Is optimizing the page to be easily found and indexable by search engines. This is everything from content writing to getting backlinks.

    SEM - Is bidding on keywords through tools like Google AdWords. This can be extremely expensive and time consuming, and should probably only be a short term solution until your site is performing well organically.
