Google Adwords Keyword Prices 42% 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 42% higher than in Inglewood. The average price of a click in Torrance is $12.11.

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 understand if prices in Torrance are relatively low, we also compared prices with Sunnyvale which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Torrance was 27% higher than in Sunnyvale. This suggests that perhaps Torrance 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.
