Google Adwords Keyword Prices 56% Higher in Lubbock than Mesquite

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 Lubbock are 56% higher than in Mesquite. The average price of a click in Lubbock is $12.34.

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

To understand if prices in Lubbock are relatively low, we also compared prices with Jersey City which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Lubbock was 7% higher than in Jersey City. This suggests that perhaps Lubbock 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.
