Search Engine Marketing (SEM) is a term that encompasses two major facets of online marketing:
- Search engine optimization (SEO), which improves your visibility and ranking in natural or “free” search engine results,
- Paid placement or “pay-per click” advertising in the sponsored areas of search engine results.

Internet search engines regularly crawl the Web to gather data about the sites they find. They use this data to rank the sites against various search criteria. The outcome of these rankings is displayed to the public as “natural” search engine results. Web site rankings in natural search change over time. Therefore, ranking improvements are not able to be achieved immediately.
