Sacramento Ranks Amongst Most Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Sacramento was the 20th most expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of April 2015. Sacramento also ranks amongst the most expensive cities in California, ranking as 2nd. In the study, San Buenaventura ranked as the most expensive city in the country, while Manchester ranked as the least expensive city.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 13% Higher in Sacramento than Fremont

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 Sacramento are 13% higher than in Fremont. The average price of a click in Sacramento is $20.56.

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

To understand if prices in Sacramento are relatively low, we also compared prices with Staten Island which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Sacramento was 45% higher than in Staten Island. This suggests that perhaps Sacramento 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.
