Google Adwords Keyword Prices 132% Higher in Greensboro than High Point

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 Greensboro are 132% higher than in High Point. The average price of a click in Greensboro is $8.26.

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

To understand if prices in Greensboro are relatively low, we also compared prices with Newark which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Greensboro was 34% higher than in Newark. This suggests that perhaps Greensboro 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.
