These are two online methods of website optimization. They are SEO and SMO and they can make or break your website. SEO is Search Engine Optimization. It is an Internet marketing strategy; SEO considers how search engines work and what people search for. Optimizing a website primarily involves editing its content and HTML and related coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove any barriers to the indexing activities of search engines.

SMO is Social Media Optimization. It is the methodization of social media activity. It’s purpose is to attract unique visitors depending on what the website content is. Social media optimization is related to search engine marketing, but differs in several ways, primarily the focus on driving traffic from sources other than search engines. This is all quite complicated, but very effective. This all means that everything you search for via a search engine or social media site such as twitter, will direct you towards certain sites. If you notice when you do a search anywhere, it’s like all of sudden you seeing ads for it on Facebook.
