Google Adwords Keyword Prices 63% Higher in Nashville than Murfreesboro

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 Nashville are 63% higher than in Murfreesboro. The average price of a click in Nashville is $17.80.

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

To understand if prices in Nashville are relatively low, we also compared prices with Oklahoma City which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Nashville was 18% higher than in Oklahoma City. This suggests that perhaps Nashville 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.
