Las Vegas Ranks Amongst Most Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Las Vegas was the 17th most expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of March 2015. Las Vegas also ranks amongst the most expensive cities in Nevada, ranking as 1st. In the study, San Buenaventura ranked as the most expensive city in the country, while Ontario ranked as the least expensive city.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 137% Higher in Las Vegas than North Las Vegas

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 Las Vegas are 137% higher than in North Las Vegas. The average price of a click in Las Vegas is $22.30.

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

To understand if prices in Las Vegas are relatively low, we also compared prices with Portland which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Las Vegas was 9% higher than in Portland. This suggests that perhaps Las Vegas 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.
