Google Adwords Keyword Prices 134% Higher in Riverside than Moreno Valley

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 Riverside are 134% higher than in Moreno Valley. The average price of a click in Riverside is $14.83.

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

To understand if prices in Riverside are relatively low, we also compared prices with Corpus Christi which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Riverside was 75% higher than in Corpus Christi. This suggests that perhaps Riverside 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.
