Torrance Ranks Amongst Least Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Torrance was the 64th least expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of September 2014. Torrance 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.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 59% Higher in Torrance than Inglewood

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 Torrance are 59% higher than in Inglewood. The average price of a click in Torrance is $13.26.

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

To understand if prices in Torrance are relatively low, we also compared prices with Sunnyvale which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Torrance was 75% higher than in Sunnyvale. This suggests that perhaps Torrance 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.
