Month over Month Google Adwords Prices for Spokane Rise in April 2015

SEP's research shows that the average price of a click to advertisers targeting Spokane keywords increased by 14% in April 2015.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 19% Higher in Spokane than Bellevue

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 Spokane are 19% higher than in Bellevue. The average price of a click in Spokane is $17.22.

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

To understand if prices in Spokane are relatively low, we also compared prices with Birmingham which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Spokane was 58% higher than in Birmingham. This suggests that perhaps Spokane 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.
