    I think I will go with Social Media Marketing (SMM) as such programs create content that attracts attention and encourages readers or viewers. Social sites like facebook, twitter are effective media for this. I have seen it practically. It seems to be trusted third-party source. Also This kind of marketing is goaded by word of mouth which is quite effective in my view.

    Both SEO and SMM are equally important for traffic as well as conversion. SEO without SMM is incomplete. You need to work on both. Plan accordingly.

    They both work the same way. If you really need an impact... do both. You need to optimize your website to be able to retain and attract more visitors. You can also do business via twitter or facebook, make sure that clients are taken care of, etc. It works the same way that you can't really judge it which one works best. It depends on how you handle or do things.

    Both SEO & SMM are interrelated. For effective seo you need to do social networking and both collaboratively help you get traffic. So you can't just rely on one.

    Both are generating traffic, but if you're asking me "more traffic", definitely SMM (Social Media Marketing) is the best. Just want to give you this quick sample, SEO brings daily visits. SMM brings a "spike" on your visits, it just depends on what post, tweet, or share you applied to your followers. SMM also brings much more visitors, depending on how compelling and trustworthy the post or tweets. I guess it's much better than leaving "spam" message and comments. Videos on SMM do bring unimaginable popularity on the site. Remember to keep set your mind like you're the targeted visitor. You should know what people most likely do and don't. Be the market yourself, so it'll be easy for you to plan these marketing strategies. :)

    SEO and SMM works quietly different. SEO is the process where you gain traffic from search engines through links, and other factors related to seo. On the other side, SMM takes place when you are building a reputation or brand. Sometimes you can use SEO in doing reputation building.

    You can do both in order to maximize traffic to your website. SEO takes months or years to gain something good, while in the process, backing up with SMM can be a good idea.

    Social Media Marketing will probably get you more in the short-term, but SEO is a huge long-term benefit. I'd probably say a healthy mixture of both would be best.

    Depends on the Services one going to promote ... I am not Found it Works In Short time as It Depends on your Reputation with Groups and Discussion to advertising with website that get maximum visits ...
    Don't Forgo the power of other marketing techniques like Content Sharing techniques , join Answering Sites like yahoo , Relevant Communities to discussing and help other members , video sharing etc
    Overall All are Considers As techniques in SEO .

    Could you expand upon this? Are there any disadvantages to SEO? What do you mean by "be strong community on SEM"? I am sure others would be helped by your insights, if you could just provide more information?

    SMO gives the traffic but not for all the time but SEO is the only way to stay in search engine result page.
