Dallas Ranks Amongst Most Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Dallas was the 3rd most expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of December 2014. Dallas also ranks amongst the most expensive cities in Texas, ranking as 1st. In the study, San Buenaventura ranked as the most expensive city in the country, while Manchester ranked as the least expensive city.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 171% Higher in Dallas than Irving

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 Dallas are 171% higher than in Irving. The average price of a click in Dallas is $25.38.

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

To understand if prices in Dallas are relatively low, we also compared prices with Queens which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Dallas was 106% higher than in Queens. This suggests that perhaps Dallas 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.
