Now a days both are good for marketing a website but SMO is better than SEO because social media is more famous and best as compared to SEO. Social media marketing helps in website promotion.

Social marketing is definitely the best as it is more effective and I think it reaches a wider audience base, as people tend to share things that they come across with their friends

It depends on what you want to achieve. Twitter has it's benefits for those who don't have really much to say, but want to keep followers engaged and involved. There is bigger chance that people will read your message till the end In case you want and can say a lot - use Facebook. Facebook is also better in terms of posting of material of differing kind - pictures, photos, videos, links, text, polls, etc. I think it provides deeper engagement with your users - they can comment your posts at least, Twitter is more about one way communication

I think that both are important, but maybe social media is more attractive nowadays.

I dunno ... each of them have their advantage. May be social media networking, as they allow your viewers to stay updated with anything new happening on your site without requiring any effort from their end.

I guess SEO is better than social media marketing because more people search for the business opportunity. Like, I never saw any person looking for a business over a social media sites. Plus with SEO, you can target a particular audience on the basis of their interest and with addition to that, you can keep records of your traffics and views.

after google updates Social Media is more reliable and it's effective. Compare SEO, SMO has less time investment.

As you see it's rather difficult to define which technique is better. But nevertheless you have to use both of them. Both SEO and SMM work for your reputation and traffic. So experiment with both of them and you'll get the result.

Both social media and SEO are important for online presence of a business. You can get traffic from the social media websites and with the help of seo you can get good organic search results. What you do in the seo like blog post you can share it on the social media websites for better response.
