Globalization of Search: US Hispanic Marketing

Metrics and measurement: not the exclusive purview of search marketing and web analytics.

CNN's Taylor Gandossy takes a look at what the word "Hispanic" (US-government issue, circa 1970s) means in cultural terms: The complicated measure of being Hispanic in America.
