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 56% higher than in West Jordan. The average price of a click in Provo is $12.79.

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 29% 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.
