    Search Engine Marketing or SEM can also be termed as Internet marketing. In this, efforts are taken to increase the visibility of websites over the search engines.

      IMO, SEM is good for those who are not trained in Search Engine Optimization or having no time to do it themselves, it will help them to mitigate the initial barriers to entry.

          Sorry, I don't get it. What is search engine marketing then, and what differs it from search engine optimization? If SEM was the other name of internet marketing as Phoenix65 mentioned, I couldn't see how it is related to and "easier" than SEO.

            GWilson, in broad term SEM is combination of both organic Search Engine Optimization and Paid Search Listings including other method of online marketing but most people consider SEM as a part of paid search listing or paid search advertising method of online marketing which focus on ROI (return on investment) instead of organic traffic building for example Adwords like PPC Program, that means you're paying a search engine to add your site to their database immediately, rather than the website will be found by the search engine spiders on its own through organic search listing.

            @harry yes, Eukhost is one of the brilliant example of Organic Search Engine Optimization, as per my knowledge, I don't think they are doing paid listing.

                I believe there is a better term than Organic Search Engine Optimization (Organic SEO is not so accurate since organic listings are a direct consequence of Search Engine Optimization). Therefore, organic listings is more like it. Correct me if I'm wrong?

                  Mu understanding is this, although I'm not an expert:

                  Internet Marketing (SEM) = Organic SE Listings (result of Search Engine Optimization) + Paid SE Listings

                  It would be nice if someone can simplify all things like this and correct my equation, if necessary.

                    Search engine marketing, or SEM, is a form of Internet marketing that seeks to promote websites by increasing their visibility in search engine result pages (SERPs) through the use of search engine optimization, paid placement, contextual advertising, and paid inclusion. Usage of the term "search engine marketing" has been inconsistent.

                        Now where have I read this before? Nothing against you mate but your answers are not that organic.

                        What I would like to know is the difference between SEM and SEO. Why do we need to use SEM if we already have SEO in the first place?
