Google Adwords Keyword Prices 467% Higher in Colorado Springs than Pueblo

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 Colorado Springs are 467% higher than in Pueblo. The average price of a click in Colorado Springs is $19.69.

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

To understand if prices in Colorado Springs are relatively low, we also compared prices with Kansas City which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Colorado Springs was 25% higher than in Kansas City. This suggests that perhaps Colorado Springs 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.
