Google Adwords Keyword Prices 7% 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 7% higher than in Portsmouth. The average price of a click in Chesapeake is $6.94.

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 get a better sense of relative prices, we also compared prices with another city of equal population, Gilbert, and found the average price of a click in Chesapeake was 21% lower than in Gilbert. This suggests that perhaps prices in Chesapeake 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.
