Blog: Think of blogs as journal entries which allow commenting. Blogs are typically unvarnished thoughts, tips, general information, ideas and opinions. Blogs are generally between 100 and 500 words with comment responses being very brief typically thanking the posting party for their assistance.
Forum: Think of forums as an individual (or group) looking for feedback on a specific question or topic. Discussion forums typically require a membership and often consist of like minded individuals. Forums often allow notices of new posts to be emailed to all members and in some cases the administrator can select the "most correct response".

Organic SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is the use of website techniques to improve your website's search engine results. Search engines use specific algorithms to determine what website will be ranked higher for a particular query in search results. These algorithms are constantly evolving along with the internet, so it is important to stay abreast of SEO techniques. Organic SEO results typically take longer to mature than SEM results. Some examples of organic SEO techniques include using relevant page titles, informative page descriptions, image tagging and writing content relevant for human readers.
On the other hand, paid SEM (Search Engine Marketing) involves advertising campaigns such as Pay Per Click (PPC). This type of advertising may be featured in a banner or in the margins of websites or search engines. A company may gain immediate results with paid SEM campaigns. However, the website must be informative, well organized, well designed and capture the attention of the viewer within the first three seconds.
