Google Adwords Keyword Prices 10% Higher in Stockton than Modesto

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 Stockton are 10% higher than in Modesto. The average price of a click in Stockton is $10.45.

This price difference is understandable though, given the population of Modesto is less than Stockton, 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, Cincinnati, and found the average price of a click in Stockton was 34% lower than in Cincinnati. This suggests that perhaps prices in Stockton 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.
