Google Adwords Keyword Prices 55% Higher in Long Beach than Torrance

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 Long Beach are 55% higher than in Torrance. The average price of a click in Long Beach is $16.40.

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

To understand if prices in Long Beach are relatively low, we also compared prices with Staten Island which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Long Beach was 16% higher than in Staten Island. This suggests that perhaps Long Beach 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.
