Year over Year Google Adwords Prices for Tampa are up in July 2015

SEP's research shows that the average price of a click to advertisers targeting Tampa keywords increased by (Yr/Yr increase %)% versus the same keywords one year earlier.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 108% Higher in Tampa than St. Petersburg

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 Tampa are 108% higher than in St. Petersburg. The average price of a click in Tampa is $23.15.

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

To understand if prices in Tampa are relatively low, we also compared prices with Aurora which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Tampa was 50% higher than in Aurora. This suggests that perhaps Tampa 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.
