SEM includes all the marketing techniques you could use to promote your site, hence not necessarily only related to internet (you could buy adds on tv or in newspapers for example).
SEO only includes the techniques to improve your site SERPs, and thus bring more referrals from search engines.
So SEO is a part of SEM when done properly, because marketing should care about your activity to be visible by all means.

That's exact definition and I think SEM scoop is too way high than SEO in these days.

I think SEM might mainly include PPC and SEO. As we all known, SEO needs a relative long period to be successful while SEM offers the advantage of immediacy, especially via PPC campaign. :)

You're right, I forgot to mention PPC campaigns, and they as a matter of fact usually are the most part of SEM.
As adikwok mentioned, their effect stops with the campaigns, so it's not a long run investment unless you'll always be paying.

I personally focus the more on things that last, but PPC can be a great marketing tool.

in my little experience, ppc is not as good as seo,
especially phpbb-seo.

my site gradually get more hit, after i had been guided
from 3 extraordinary people below :

Coyote, SeO & dcz

i never found any forum just like this amazing one.

hope my site can be better, so i can give contribution.

but seo is not easy, and consist of many frustated nights.

it was a gift for me, that i had found those extraordinary people, who are willing to help with their humble hearts.

viva phpbb-seo, wish you all the best.
dont know, how to express my thanks to you sirs.

True, ppc cannot be considered as seo since it does only last the time you run campaigns, but it's still a way t get people to know your site and to bring visitors. So it's definitely a marketing tool.

SEM - Search Engine Marketing

This is the process of marketing a Web site via search engines through multiple tactics both paid and organic to increase visibility, brand awareness, traffic and most definitely ROI. SEM encompasses SEO, paid advertising, Social Media Marketing, Blog marketing and Web analytics. Let’s break these down separately.

SEO - Search Engine Optimization

A crucial component of any SEM campaign, SEO is a long term strategy that includes using both on and off page factors such as strategic linking, content, addressing site structure / navigation, and technical search friendliness issues. SEO does not happen overnight. But with a little elbow grease your Web site can enjoy quality targeted traffic and top search positions.

SEM means we have to pay more often everytime we get clicks :D meanwhile with SEO you only need to pay one times/ buy backlink to get Google first page :)
