Google Adwords Keyword Prices 86% Higher in Plano than Richardson

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 Plano are 86% higher than in Richardson. The average price of a click in Plano is $15.20.

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

To understand if prices in Plano are relatively low, we also compared prices with Anchorage which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Plano was 38% higher than in Anchorage. This suggests that perhaps Plano 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.
