Google Adwords Keyword Prices 33% Higher in Baton Rouge than Lafayette

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 Baton Rouge are 33% higher than in Lafayette. The average price of a click in Baton Rouge is $15.86.

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

To understand if prices in Baton Rouge are relatively low, we also compared prices with Gilbert which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Baton Rouge was 64% higher than in Gilbert. This suggests that perhaps Baton Rouge 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.
