SEO/SEM – What’s the Difference? And Why You Need Both…
SEO stands for search engine optimization. For example, by using certain keywords in the written content on your website, you can let Internet search engines know that what your website is offering is of significant interest to consumers who are searching online.
SEM stands for search engine marketing. SEM externally (outside your website) cues search engines to rank a website at a certain level. (Example: building links back to your website)
SEO and SEM go hand in hand and refer to on-site and off-site strategies. For best results, you really need to include both in your marketing.
Why do you need search engine marketing (SEM)?
If your website doesn’t appear on the first page of Google and other search engines, you’re losing valuable business opportunities.

Most business owners don’t have the time (or inclination) to learn search engine optimization or to implement it correctly. It takes consistent effort and hard work. It’s extremely time consuming. What’s even worse is that, if done incorrectly, SEO can do more harm than good. And because search engines are constantly changing their search algorithms (causing changes that throw previous strategies off-kilter), staying on top of search engine changes is still another time-consuming task.
