Google Adwords Keyword Prices 31% Higher in Newport News than Hampton

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 Newport News are 31% higher than in Hampton. The average price of a click in Newport News is $8.90.

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

To understand if prices in Newport News are relatively low, we also compared prices with Brownsville which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Newport News was 400% higher than in Brownsville. This suggests that perhaps Newport News 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.
