Month over Month Google Adwords Prices for Corpus Christi Rise in July 2015

SEP's research shows that the average price of a click to advertisers targeting Corpus Christi keywords increased by 10% in July 2015.

Not surprisingly, the month over month price increases for Corpus Christi Google Adwords terms helped increase prices (yr./yr. price increase)% higher than the same period last year.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 160% Higher in Corpus Christi than Mcallen

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 Corpus Christi are 160% higher than in Mcallen. The average price of a click in Corpus Christi is $18.76.

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

To understand if prices in Corpus Christi are relatively low, we also compared prices with Riverside which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Corpus Christi was 76% higher than in Riverside. This suggests that perhaps Corpus Christi 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.
