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 167% Higher in Torrance than Inglewood

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 Torrance are 167% higher than in Inglewood. The average price of a click in Torrance is $10.52.

This price difference is understandable though, given the population of Inglewood is less than Torrance, 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, Sunnyvale, and found the average price of a click in Torrance was 27% lower than in Sunnyvale. This suggests that perhaps prices in Torrance 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.
