Google Adwords Keyword Prices 125% Higher in Fresno than Visalia

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 Fresno are 125% higher than in Visalia. The average price of a click in Fresno is $11.14.

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

To get a better sense of relative prices, we also compared prices with another city of equal population, Tucson, and found the average price of a click in Fresno was 26% lower than in Tucson. This suggests that perhaps prices in Fresno are 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.
