Findings for PPC in Long Beach

Long Beach Ranks Amongst Least Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Long Beach was the 77th least expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of July 2015. Long Beach also ranks amongst the least expensive cities in California, ranking as number 11th. In the study, San Buenaventura ranked as the most expensive city in the country, while Ontario ranked as the least expensive city.

Month over Month Google Adwords Prices for Long Beach Rise in July 2015

SEP's research shows that the average price of a click to advertisers targeting Long Beach keywords increased by 10% in July 2015.

Not surprisingly, the month over month price increases for Long Beach Google Adwords terms helped increase prices (yr./yr. price increase)% higher than the same period last year.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 6% Higher in Long Beach than Torrance

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 Long Beach are 6% higher than in Torrance. The average price of a click in Long Beach is $15.07.

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

To understand if prices in Long Beach are relatively low, we also compared prices with Staten Island which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Long Beach was 8% higher than in Staten Island. This suggests that perhaps Long Beach 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.
