Month over Month Google Adwords Prices for Las Vegas Rise in September 2014

SEP's research shows that the average price of a click to advertisers targeting Las Vegas keywords increased by 10% in September 2014.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 231% Higher in Las Vegas than North Las Vegas

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 Las Vegas are 231% higher than in North Las Vegas. The average price of a click in Las Vegas is $19.62.

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

To understand if prices in Las Vegas are relatively low, we also compared prices with Portland which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Las Vegas was 39% higher than in Portland. This suggests that perhaps Las Vegas 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.
