Irvine Ranks Amongst Least Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Irvine was the 108th least expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of December 2014. Irvine also ranks amongst the least expensive cities in California, ranking as number 23rd. In the study, San Buenaventura ranked as the most expensive city in the country, while Manchester ranked as the least expensive city.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 8% Higher in Irvine than Costa Mesa

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 Irvine are 8% higher than in Costa Mesa. The average price of a click in Irvine is $12.09.

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

To understand if prices in Irvine are relatively low, we also compared prices with Winston-salem which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Irvine was 36% higher than in Winston-salem. This suggests that perhaps Irvine 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.
