Google Adwords Keyword Prices 136% Higher in Lansing than Flint

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 Lansing are 136% higher than in Flint. The average price of a click in Lansing is $8.22.

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

To understand if prices in Lansing are relatively low, we also compared prices with Fairfield which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Lansing was 49% higher than in Fairfield. This suggests that perhaps Lansing 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.
