Google Adwords Keyword Prices 5% Higher in Thousand Oaks than Simi Valley

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 Thousand Oaks are 5% higher than in Simi Valley. The average price of a click in Thousand Oaks is $13.25.

This price difference is understandable though, given the population of Simi Valley is less than Thousand Oaks, which generally means less competition and therefore lower prices.

To understand if prices in Thousand Oaks are relatively low, we also compared prices with Waco which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Thousand Oaks was 36% higher than in Waco. This suggests that perhaps Thousand Oaks 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.
