Google Adwords Keyword Prices 94% Higher in Lancaster than Palmdale

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 Lancaster are 94% higher than in Palmdale. The average price of a click in Lancaster is $8.07.

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

To understand if prices in Lancaster are relatively low, we also compared prices with Corona which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Lancaster was 8% higher than in Corona. This suggests that perhaps Lancaster 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.
