Provo Ranks Amongst Least Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Provo was the 160th least expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of December 2014. Provo also ranks amongst the least expensive cities in Utah, ranking as number 2nd. 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 99% Higher in Provo than West Jordan

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 Provo are 99% higher than in West Jordan. The average price of a click in Provo is $9.55.

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

To understand if prices in Provo are relatively low, we also compared prices with Peoria which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Provo was 74% higher than in Peoria. This suggests that perhaps Provo 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.
