    SEO, or search engine optimization, refers to the methods by which websites are improved to rank better in search engine queries.

    SEM actually includes SEO, but it also includes PPC, or pay-per-click advertising. Basically, SEM is a combination of paid and unpaid strategies meant to improve your website’s visibility in searches.

    The free SEO activities to drive traffic on site like content marketing, link-building, directories, forums, video etc are under SEO.
    SEO's primary opjective is to improve Organic traffic on website, but while we engage in Paid marketing like Affiliate marketing, Emailing, PPC etc, it called as SEM.
    Because we are doing marketing to drive traffic and sales on our site.
    But the most important thing is without SEO, SEM is not possible. On-page optimization is must which is a part of SEO and need to perform it before considering SEM.

    Can anyone say which approach is more effective? Or is that a redundant question?

    Both SEO and SEM techniques are used to increase the search engine visibility. SEO is a long-term process in which we have to optimize our website to the Search Engines for the rankings whereas SEM is a short term process and it is all about paying for Google for instant traffic.
