Google Adwords Keyword Prices 105% Higher in Denver than Lakewood

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 Denver are 105% higher than in Lakewood. The average price of a click in Denver is $25.32.

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

To understand if prices in Denver are relatively low, we also compared prices with Seattle which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Denver was 44% higher than in Seattle. This suggests that perhaps Denver 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.
