The data and visualisations discussed in this paper illustrate the impact of various key phrases, core to the open education movement, on the World Wide Web at large as well as on some particular realms of online activity. Various digital methods and webometrics techniques were used with the aim of collecting and analysing relevant data. In particular, two so-called automatic search engine query submitters were used, namely the Webometrics Analyst and the Google Scraper. The analysis focuses on the impact of the phrases "recursos educativos abiertos" and "contenido abierto" (equivalent in Spanish to the terms "open educational resources" and "open content" respectively) on the HE sector of Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America.
