SEM is search engine marketing. SEM is any aspect that is used to carry out a PPC campaign utilizing user queries in the search engines. This is more specific to advertising but SEO can tie into a SEM plan because you can obviously use SEO for branding purposes.

SEO is Search Engine Optimization and it refers to the process used to rank pages on the interweb.

So in layman's

SEM - Advertising

SEO - Ranking pages on the web

The difference between SEO and SEM is simply that Search Engine Optimization is part of Search engine marketing or Search marketing as it is widely known. Both processes aim in increasing visibility in search engines. SEO is about optimizing the web property to get better rankings in the search results while SEM goes beyond SEO. It involves other methods as well which can get you more search engine visitors like PPC advertising.

I think you can get a better idea with this.
SEM : When you advertise your website in search engine results page. For eg. when you Google something you saw ads below the search bar and also right side of the results page. It is called Search Engine Marketing.

SEO : Search Engine Optimization is a technique to promote your website on different different website to make your website popular so that you can get higher position on search engine results page. For eg. when you google something, Google give you no of links related to your query. So to get a position inb those results we do SEO.

in my opinion, in Google, SEM = Google Adwords (pay money for Google), SEO = Search Engine Optimization (free money if you do for yourself, do Link building, Social Networks, Submit Links and more).

When you involve with Paid marketing, Advertising like Paid Campaign (PPC), paid PR, display campaign then this marketing called SEM (Search Engine Marketing)
Moreover the method of marketing in which user comes to your site through search and for this you charged called SEM.

While SEO is the traditional ways of ON-Site and Off-Site optimization using various activities to drive traffic on your website without direct investment or cost of every visits.

but remember that SEO is the heart and without SEO, you can't run effective SEM.

More are less both are done to increase the traffic to your website thus to improve the ranking. SEM is all about advertising (paid) so that you will get more traffic. example google adwords. SEO is about optimising the quality of the website and creating backlinks from which you can get traffic to your site.
