Google Adwords Keyword Prices 9% 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 9% higher than in West Jordan. The average price of a click in Provo is $9.77.

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 get a better sense of relative prices, we also compared prices with another city of equal population, Peoria, and found the average price of a click in Provo was 8% lower than in Peoria. This suggests that perhaps prices in Provo are 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.
