Google Adwords Keyword Prices 32% Higher in Santa Ana than Orange

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 Santa Ana are 32% higher than in Orange. The average price of a click in Santa Ana is $8.79.

This price difference is understandable though, given the population of Orange is less than Santa Ana, 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, Anaheim, and found the average price of a click in Santa Ana was 15% lower than in Anaheim. This suggests that perhaps prices in Santa Ana 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.
