Google Adwords Keyword Prices 436% Higher in San Bernardino than Rialto

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 San Bernardino are 436% higher than in Rialto. The average price of a click in San Bernardino is $15.35.

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

To understand if prices in San Bernardino are relatively low, we also compared prices with Richmond which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in San Bernardino was 29% higher than in Richmond. This suggests that perhaps San Bernardino 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.
