What is SEO, What is Search Marketing, How do they intertwine?

SEO stands for search engine optimization. This is the process of wording your site and content in the best possible way to make it search engine friendly, thus pushing your site to the to of the search when people search for something related to your site.
Google ranking is exactly where your page falls on the Google search engine. Is your site on page 1 or on page 100. There are many other search engines too so you will often hear the term search ranking or page rank in general reference to where your site falls on search. Sites like Yahoo, Duck Duck Go, and others still drive quite a bit of traffic so should not be ignored.
Social media posting is related to SEO and Search Ranking because posting to social media and keeping your feeds current can help your site go up in the search rankings. It shows the search engines that your site produces lots of content and has links to it from popular sites and posters. Social media can also influence people to link their site to yours. They might also post content related to your post and link back to your site. This too can often help boost your search ranking.
One thing to state though is that search algorithms are closely guarded secrets so nobody and/or no company knows any exact way they work. Therefore nobody can guarantee rankings.
