    If i am not worng, SEO is where you concentrate on SERPS and how you rank for searches. SEM is where you buy ads like AdWords (The ads seen on the right in Google).

    This is what WebmasterWorld.Com says:

    sem = Search Engine Marketing. It includes seo and paid techniques like paid inclusion and paid placement.

    seo = search engine optimization. optimizing your site for natural listings and directories.

    seo is a piece of sem.

    Here is a nice post about it: http://www.seoconsult.co.uk/SEOBlog/...o-and-sem.html

    Well yeah, Google did the trick for me, you should try it too!
