Month over Month Google Adwords Prices for Nashville Rise in November 2014

SEP's research shows that the average price of a click to advertisers targeting Nashville keywords increased by 20% in November 2014.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 168% 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 168% higher than in Murfreesboro. The average price of a click in Nashville is $16.58.

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 25% 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.
