Google Adwords Keyword Prices 83% Higher in Phoenix than Glendale

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 Phoenix are 83% higher than in Glendale. The average price of a click in Phoenix is $25.04.

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

To understand if prices in Phoenix are relatively low, we also compared prices with Philadelphia which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Phoenix was 30% higher than in Philadelphia. This suggests that perhaps Phoenix 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.
