SEM stands for Search Engine Marketing, and PPC stands for Pay Per Click. Both SEM and PPC are forms of marketing in which the advertisers pay Google or any other search engine company to display their ads on the SERP or search engine results pages. Advertisers bid for a particular keyword, and whenever that keyword is searched, their ad is displayed on the SERP. The advertisers only pay if the ad is clicked by the customer or the searcher. That is why it is also called Pay Per Click Marketing. PPC is also used for social media advertisements such as Twitter Ads, Facebook Ads, Quora Ads, etc.
