Google Adwords Keyword Prices 782% Higher in Salt Lake City than West Valley City

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 Salt Lake City are 782% higher than in West Valley City. The average price of a click in Salt Lake City is $14.35.

This price difference is understandable though, given the population of West Valley City is less than Salt Lake City, which generally means less competition and therefore lower prices.

To understand if prices in Salt Lake City are relatively low, we also compared prices with Providence which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Salt Lake City was 169% higher than in Providence. This suggests that perhaps Salt Lake City 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.
