Difference between SMO & SEO
« Reply #3 on: August 17, 2011, 08:40:40 AM »
Hi..provides some differences here....
SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

Comparatively the more costly form of optimization, especially in the initial stages of setting up the SEO frame work for your project, it is an expensive affair

The traffic you receive from your SEO efforts is huge and consistent. You continue to receive the traffic based on your SERP (search engine rank positions). If you have higher ranks, you have huge traffic.

SEO is an ongoing activity that needs to be continuously performed to make sure you are on the top. In short SEO is a permanent fix to your search engine traffic.

SMO (Social Media Optimization)

You could identify SMO as a quick fix when compared to SEO. SMO is all about huge traffic spikes in short time, it does not require and wait time for the search engine bots to index your page. It directly fires your messages to the potential visitors.

earch engine optimization (SEO) and social media optimization (SMO) are two of the bigger concerns for webmasters and bloggers, as they can both have substantial impacts on the amount of traffic a website or blog receives. But does optimizing your site for search engines hinder your SMO efforts (and vice versa) or can they co-exist? And what are the similarities and differences between the two?

SEO has been a common activity of website owners for years now. Although search engine optimization still remains largely a mystery to many webmasters and bloggers, its basic concepts have been, and still are, fairly simple. While SEO is no doubt effective, a relatively small number of websites are optimized due to a general lack of knowledge and a high price tag for most professional services. In addition to the cost, SEO is ignored by some because it is difficult to produce immediate results, and real growth in search traffic takes time.

Social media optimization could be considered as one of the methods of search engine marketing, yet there are few differences too. The main focus of Social media optimization is to drive traffic from sources other than search engines. However, improved search ranking is also a benefit of successful SMO.

That's true, both SEO and SMO concern with two different concepts of same thing i.e marketing!
The main difference between these two things is that SMO largely depends on strong profiles while SEO can do without them!!

SEO is much extensive and wider than SMO. SMO is a part of an SEO campaign and SEO involves many other processes like link-building, blog management and SMO can be a part of the campaign.

Social Media Optimization is a branch of SEO. The only advantage of SMO over SEO is through SMO you can directly connect and communicate with your target audience.

Hello,

SEO is defined as the marketing of web content via the search engine results page (SERP) in order to increase site traffic, product sales, and company/personal recognition. The process starts with the strategic placement of heavily searched words and phrases, called keywords and key phrases, into the body of the web content.

SMO is defined as the marketing of web content and other multimedia via social community, bookmarking, news, picture, and video sites. Examples of social media sites include Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Businesswire, and YouTube.

SEO and SMO are two of the bigger concerns for webmasters and Bloggers, as they can both have substantial impacts on the amount of traffic a website or blog receives.

SEO has been a common activity of website owners for years now. It is no doubt effective. Search Engines sends tons of free traffic to those with the high rankings for popular search terms.

While SMO (Social media optimization) has only become popular in the past few years as the use of social networking sites has exploded. When compared with successful SEO, social media traffic is less steady.
I think both SEO and SMO are important to get role to get top 10 ranking of a website.

social media optimization is the process of increasing the awareness of a product, brand or event by using a number of social media outlets and communities to generate viral publicity.
Search engine optimization (SEO) can be described as strategies and tactics used to ensure that a site is accessible to a search engine and improves the chances that the site will be found by the search engine.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO):

SEO is geared to acquiring natural, "organic" rankings on a business website. When the term organic is used in terms of online marketing, it is meant that these rankings are the product of unpaid advertisements that are placed in the middle of search homepages. The goal and desired end result of SEO is to optimize a website and increase the website's ranking within the engine results, like Google.


Search Engine Marketing (SEM):

SEM differs from SEO in that paid advertisements are allocated in this marketing tactic. SEO is actually the first portion of SEM, whereby SEM concludes online marketing in a more sophisticated, seamless manner. The biggest difference between SEO and SEM is the assignment of sites that obtain ranking through search marketing tactics.
