Sunnyvale Ranks Amongst Least Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Sunnyvale was the 80th least expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of April 2015. Sunnyvale also ranks amongst the least expensive cities in California, ranking as number 16th. 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 25% Higher in Sunnyvale than Santa Clara

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 Sunnyvale are 25% higher than in Santa Clara. The average price of a click in Sunnyvale is $14.50.

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

To understand if prices in Sunnyvale are relatively low, we also compared prices with Torrance which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Sunnyvale was 37% higher than in Torrance. This suggests that perhaps Sunnyvale 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.
