Month over Month Google Adwords Prices for Fort Collins Rise in May 2016

SEP's research shows that the average price of a click to advertisers targeting Fort Collins keywords increased by 24% in May 2016.

Not surprisingly, the month over month price increases for Fort Collins Google Adwords terms helped increase prices (yr./yr. price increase)% higher than the same period last year.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 7% Higher in Fort Collins than Boulder

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 Fort Collins are 7% higher than in Boulder. The average price of a click in Fort Collins is $19.57.

This price difference is understandable though, given the population of Boulder is less than Fort Collins, which generally means less competition and therefore lower prices.

To understand if prices in Fort Collins are relatively low, we also compared prices with Hayward which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Fort Collins was 175% higher than in Hayward. This suggests that perhaps Fort Collins 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.
