I've been reading WebmasterWorld for years but never participated, I have noticed the Latin area of the forum is totally abandoned. Last message in this forum is from June 5 and it seems most of the questions are unresolved, I tried to reply a couple of them however, all of them have already been closed and anyway, probably the OP has already forgotten about their questions or simply not expecting a reply anymore.
Well, I could answer most of the questions so if you have questions do not hesitate to post them, Iíll be around for a while and try to reply to them if I feel my reply will be helpful, of course.
Hispanic Internet, both, Latin American and Spanish is growing at a very high rate, and with more than 10% (and growing) of the total US population speaking Spanish, this is a market you surely do not want to miss and I can assure you, entry barriers are way lower in many senses.

I donít careÖ anywayÖ who the **** are you?

Iím from Spain with more than 10 years of web experience, from good old Mosaic and Infoseek to nowadays Firefox and Google, I run several sites more for pleasure than for profit, though I do get nice benefits. I have a non Internet related full-time job; this job led me to South America where I actually live, thatís one of the more enjoyable things about Internet, you can do it anywhere. As you may have noticed, English is not my mother tongue, but itís good enough to communicate. Also, Brett allows, for Spanish speakers, you do not need to post your question in perfect English, just try, donít be shy. Nevertheless, always keep in mind I am more a programmer than a SEO.

As a newcomer to WebmasterWorld I still have to learn some rules, especially since I consider important let others know about important and useful Hispanic sites for webmasters, however I donít want to be considered as a spammer. For instance, more of the directories here recommended no longer exist or are simply crappy.

Hey - thanks!

Ya, we are saddened that this section never took off. It just didn't ever have a following. We have tried.
