Search Landscape: US Hispanics & Latin Americans
How do Latino searchers in both the U.S. and Latin America interact with search engines? Do they have a preference in language when they search, as well as the search ads if written in Spanish or English? What about Portuguese speakers from Brazil? To fully engage these audiences in the learning process, particular attention should be given to gaining and maintaining trust. Greater acceptance will occur by search marketers if they are involved in the planning, delivery, and evaluation of these marketing efforts. This session explores the latest research and provides tips and tactics for search marketers to consider.

Search marketing is more than managing bids on ads. A campaign may involve both organic and paid listings, perhaps with many different products, goals and participants.
