Midland Ranks Amongst Least Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Midland was the 155th least expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of July 2015. Midland also ranks amongst the least expensive cities in Texas, ranking as number 18th. In the study, San Buenaventura ranked as the most expensive city in the country, while Ontario ranked as the least expensive city.

Month over Month Google Adwords Prices for Midland Rise in July 2015

SEP's research shows that the average price of a click to advertisers targeting Midland keywords increased by 152% in July 2015.

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

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 5% Higher in Midland than Odessa

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 Midland are 5% higher than in Odessa. The average price of a click in Midland is $10.72.

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

To understand if prices in Midland are relatively low, we also compared prices with Hayward which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Midland was 50% higher than in Hayward. This suggests that perhaps Midland 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.
