Month over Month Google Adwords Prices for Phoenix Rise in April 2015

SEP's research shows that the average price of a click to advertisers targeting Phoenix keywords increased by 13% in April 2015.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 189% Higher in Phoenix than Glendale

SEP’s research also tracks Google Adwords price changes and trends in cities across Canada and the U.S. Recent data shows that average prices in Phoenix are 189% higher than in Glendale. The average price of a click in Phoenix is $24.03.

This price difference is understandable though, given the population of Glendale is less than Phoenix, which generally means less competition and therefore lower prices.

To understand if prices in Phoenix are relatively low, we also compared prices with Philadelphia which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Phoenix was 32% higher than in Philadelphia. This suggests that perhaps Phoenix prices are not relatively low.

The Price Rank shows how expensive keywords are in certain industry and segment relative to other cities in a country, region and province.
