Usually, the earlier a site is presented in the search results, or the higher it "ranks," the more searchers will visit that site. The leading search engines, Google, Yahoo! and Microsoft, use crawlers to find pages for their algorithmic search results.

SEM might cover most or even all of the techniques webmasters of the commercial sites are employing for boosting their sites as well as revenues across the net. Since some years ago, even many of the personal sites have been monetized and therefore entered the SEM realms.

Hi

Search engine marketing involves all activities that can be used to promote a website, a business or earn a website owner income. SEM involves activities such as paid inclusions, which involves paying search engines to make it easier for a website to be found by internet users. For some search engines, this is the only way that websites can get listed. Most website owners prefer paying because it means their sites will be listed sooner than others and internet users will be able to keep track of changes being made on the site. Another aspect of SEM is placing advertisements on the website to market a product or website. Pay per click is another SEM technique used by search engines and website owners to generate traffic for websites. In this case, payment is made per every click of the advertisement.

Thanks
Have a nice time ahead.

Both SEO and SEM techniques are drawn towards generating traffic to a website, promoting a product and bringing up profits. One of the biggest differences in these two techniques is the SEM is almost guaranteed and takes place immediately but SEO requires more work, monitoring and patience to yield results. SEM is more expensive because it is a fast and reliable way of promoting a website. SEM mainly gets people to click on a website link. After that website users have a little time to convince users that they can find what they are looking for on that website. This is where SEO comes in. SEO techniques have to be applied to make sure that users get what they are looking for and will come back to that site to look for further information in the future.

Thanks
Have a nice time ahead

SEO is about optimizing your website to get better rankings in the search results while SEM goes beyond SEO.
Search Engine Marketing is over and above SEO but it’s only a subset of your overall Internet Marketing Strategy.
