Google Adwords Keyword Prices 37% Higher in Santa Rosa than Vallejo

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 Rosa are 37% higher than in Vallejo. The average price of a click in Santa Rosa is $10.91.

This price difference is understandable though, given the population of Vallejo is less than Santa Rosa, 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 Santa Rosa was 53% lower than in Fort Lauderdale. This suggests that perhaps prices in Santa Rosa 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.
