In my opinion SMO and SEO will pretty much merge in the coming years rather than being known as separate entities. It’s a natural step for the social side of things to have more of an impact on SEO as more and more of us use Twitter and Facebook for finding out information and making buying decisions.
SEO is the way of analyzing a website and modifying it to enable search engines to read, understand, and index it correctly. In terms of short SEO is done to impress search engine. While on other hand SMO consist of set of methods for generating traffic on any website through social networking websites, business networking websites, online communities and blogs.
