Google Adwords Keyword Prices 7% Higher in Sunnyvale than Santa Clara

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 Sunnyvale are 7% higher than in Santa Clara. The average price of a click in Sunnyvale is $10.24.

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

To get a better sense of relative prices, we also compared prices with another city of equal population, Torrance, and found the average price of a click in Sunnyvale was 15% lower than in Torrance. This suggests that perhaps prices in Sunnyvale are 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.
