Google Adwords Keyword Prices 22% Higher in Buffalo than Erie

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 Buffalo are 22% higher than in Erie. The average price of a click in Buffalo is $8.50.

This price difference is understandable though, given the population of Erie is less than Buffalo, 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, Chula Vista, and found the average price of a click in Buffalo was 25% lower than in Chula Vista. This suggests that perhaps prices in Buffalo 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.
