Chesapeake Ranks Amongst Least Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Chesapeake was the 174th least expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of March 2015. Chesapeake also ranks amongst the least expensive cities in Virginia, ranking as number 7th. In the study, San Buenaventura ranked as the most expensive city in the country, while Ontario ranked as the least expensive city.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 46% Higher in Chesapeake than Portsmouth

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 Chesapeake are 46% higher than in Portsmouth. The average price of a click in Chesapeake is $9.91.

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

To understand if prices in Chesapeake are relatively low, we also compared prices with Gilbert which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Chesapeake was 10% higher than in Gilbert. This suggests that perhaps Chesapeake 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.
