Default Difference Between SEM Vs SEO To Promote Your Website?

SEM like google that charges a bunch load vs just hiring an individual SEO that will make it much cheaper. Difference between the two? I know Redbull will invest in something like SEM google because they charge $150K a year!!?? Which would be good for affiliate marketing? Also is the purpose are SEM only for larger corporations since they have all the money to spend.

Generally Paid ads can be use for the keywords having high competition and quite tough to get rank through SEO worth good budget. And SEO is definitely quite cheaper as compared to paid ads but it takes time for the high competition keywords.

SEM (Search engine marketing) is include both the Search engine optimization and PPC program like Google Adwords.

We can enhance the campaign with the help of search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo.

SEO (Search Engine Optimization ) . It is purpose of getting free traffic from search engine. It includes white hat SEO and black hat SEO. There are two tools of SEO what are called on-site SEO and Off-site SEO.
SEM(Social engine Marketing). It is paid form of SEO. We have to deposit money to google to show the website link on google search. Pay per click is example of SEM.
Both are good for promoting the website but SEO is more better than SEM because SEO is free and for long term.

SEO will take time to achieve any kind of results.But SEM would bring you the results within few weeks or so.If the competition for the particular product is high in the market and if results is needed in shorter span of time, then SEM would be the best option to go for.
