Google Adwords Keyword Prices 21% Higher in Honolulu than Stockton

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 Honolulu are 21% higher than in Stockton. The average price of a click in Honolulu is $13.80.

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

To get a better sense of relative prices, we also compared prices with another city of equal population, San Jose, and found the average price of a click in Honolulu was 27% lower than in San Jose. This suggests that perhaps prices in Honolulu are 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.
