Whats is SEO and SEM?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It is the method of obtaining traffic for a website or a web page from “free,” “natural,” or unpaid (“organic”) search results in a search engine.

However, SEO is based on a 2step process,

1. Website Optimization

2. Authority

Website Optimization – It means Google must understand three things i.e.

  • What keywords you are targeting
  • What products and services you are presenting on your website
  • And where you are going to sell them

Authority – It means giving authority to Google to check that your website has the best content for its users

SEM stands for Search Engine Marketing. It is a form of internet marketing that helps to improve your website and content so that it is visible to search engines.

Two Types of Search

Organic Search – It focuses on unpaid rankings in search results. Organic results dynamically created by the search engine.

Paid Search – It focuses on paid rankings in search results. The paid result is shown at the top of the SERP with a small “Ad” note in the copy.
