Oceanside Ranks Amongst Least Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Oceanside was the 145th least expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of September 2014.

In the study, San Buenaventura ranked as the most expensive city in the country, while Ontario ranked as the least expensive city.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 2% Higher in Oceanside than Carlsbad

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 Oceanside are 2% higher than in Carlsbad. The average price of a click in Oceanside is $9.21.

This price difference is understandable though, given the population of Carlsbad is less than Oceanside, 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, Fort Lauderdale, and found the average price of a click in Oceanside was 55% lower than in Fort Lauderdale. This suggests that perhaps prices in Oceanside 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.
