Findings for PPC in Hollywood

Hollywood Ranks Amongst Least Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Hollywood was the 198th least expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of September 2016. Hollywood also ranks amongst the least expensive cities in Florida, ranking as number 16th. In the study, San Buenaventura ranked as the most expensive city in the country, while Ontario ranked as the least expensive city.

Month over Month Google Adwords Prices for Hollywood Rise in September 2016

SEP's research shows that the average price of a click to advertisers targeting Hollywood keywords increased by 11% in September 2016.

Not surprisingly, the month over month price increases for Hollywood Google Adwords terms helped increase prices (yr./yr. price increase)% higher than the same period last year.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 61% Higher in Hollywood than Miami Gardens

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 Hollywood are 61% higher than in Miami Gardens. The average price of a click in Hollywood is $9.38.

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

To understand if prices in Hollywood are relatively low, we also compared prices with Paterson which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Hollywood was 45% higher than in Paterson. This suggests that perhaps Hollywood 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.
