Google Adwords Keyword Prices 40% Higher in Thornton than Westminster

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 Thornton are 40% higher than in Westminster. The average price of a click in Thornton is $12.09.

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

To understand if prices in Thornton are relatively low, we also compared prices with Gainesville which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Thornton was 26% higher than in Gainesville. This suggests that perhaps Thornton 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.
