Google Adwords Keyword Prices 66% 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 66% higher than in Palmdale. The average price of a click in Lancaster is $9.84.

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 get a better sense of relative prices, we also compared prices with another city of equal population, Corona, and found the average price of a click in Lancaster was 18% lower than in Corona. This suggests that perhaps prices in Lancaster are relatively low.
