Findings for PPC in Tampa

Tampa Ranks Amongst Most Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Tampa was the 13rd most expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of March 2015. Tampa also ranks amongst the most expensive cities in Florida, ranking as 4th. In the study, San Buenaventura ranked as the most expensive city in the country, while Ontario ranked as the least expensive city.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 110% Higher in Tampa than St. Petersburg

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 Tampa are 110% higher than in St. Petersburg. The average price of a click in Tampa is $22.69.

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

To understand if prices in Tampa are relatively low, we also compared prices with Aurora which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Tampa was 61% higher than in Aurora. This suggests that perhaps Tampa 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.
