Findings for PPC in Miami

Miami Ranks Amongst Most Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Miami was the 19th most expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of April 2015. Miami also ranks amongst the most expensive cities in Florida, ranking as 6th. 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 174% Higher in Miami than Hialeah

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 Miami are 174% higher than in Hialeah. The average price of a click in Miami is $20.77.

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

To understand if prices in Miami are relatively low, we also compared prices with Oakland which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Miami was 28% higher than in Oakland. This suggests that perhaps Miami 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.
