Scottsdale Ranks Amongst Most Expensive Markets for Keywords in Rocky Mountain States

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Scottsdale was the 8th most expensive city in Rocky Mountain States in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of November 2014. Scottsdale also ranks amongst the most expensive cities in Arizona, ranking 2nd. In the study, Denver ranked as the most expensive city in Rocky Mountain States for keywords, while Lincoln ranked as the least expensive city.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 17% Higher in Scottsdale than Tempe

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 Scottsdale are 17% higher than in Tempe. The average price of a click in Scottsdale is $16.60.

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

To understand if prices in Scottsdale are relatively low, we also compared prices with North Las Vegas which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Scottsdale was 98% higher than in North Las Vegas. This suggests that perhaps Scottsdale 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.
