93% of consumers prefer the Internet to find local businesses over Yellow Pages or the newspaper, according to a recent study by The Kelsey Group. No doubt, the World has grown to depend on search engines and the Internet for information, communications and research. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the where the source code of a website (the abstract numbers and letters that a computer sees) is massaged and sometimes completely rewritten to make it better, so search engines index its pages of information more favorably.
Search Engine Marketing (SEM) is where marketing dollars are spent to advertise a business, product or service over the web — as opposed to SEO, where people find information about what they’re looking for organically; on the unadvertised areas on a search results page.
SEO and SEM have grown tremendously in importance these past few years, and can be used to the tremendous advantage of a small and medium size business.
