Google Adwords Keyword Prices 57% Higher in Cincinnati than Dayton

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 Cincinnati are 57% higher than in Dayton. The average price of a click in Cincinnati is $16.95.

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

To understand if prices in Cincinnati are relatively low, we also compared prices with Stockton which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Cincinnati was 48% higher than in Stockton. This suggests that perhaps Cincinnati 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.
