Reno Ranks Amongst Least Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Reno was the 122nd least expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of March 2015. Reno also ranks amongst the least expensive cities in Nevada, ranking as number 3rd. 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 56% Higher in Reno than Roseville

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 Reno are 56% higher than in Roseville. The average price of a click in Reno is $12.06.

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

To understand if prices in Reno are relatively low, we also compared prices with Hialeah which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Reno was 78% higher than in Hialeah. This suggests that perhaps Reno 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.
