Yesterday the U.S. Census Bureau reported official U.S. Hispanic population growth to 41.3 million (thanks Gary). They also mentioned that the median age for Hispanics was 26.7 in July 2003, compared with 35.9 for the overall U.S. population. (These are kids and young adults that go to public schools down the street, guys). Here is even more news. In a radio interview over at NPR, Jeffrey Passel, senior research associate at the Pew Hispanic Center, talked about the following:

In past years, Hispanic population growth has been due to immigration, but last year was the first in which Hispanic births outnumbered immigrants. Passel says that's due to a large population of Hispanic women in the their 20s and 30s. "Even moderately high levels of fertility translate into large numbers of births".
What does this all mean? Millions and millions of babies that will be saying “Quieres hacer negocios conmigo?” when they grow up. Not only that, but they will be fueling growth in search queries when the general market slows down. The same goes for content that will be indexed by all search engines. I can vision a similar growth as this chart by Geoff Gaudreault (NPR) shows:
