Manchester Ranks Amongst Least Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 141% Higher in Manchester than Lowell

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 Manchester are 141% higher than in Lowell. The average price of a click in Manchester is $7.48.

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

To understand if prices in Manchester are relatively low, we also compared prices with Elgin which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Manchester was 52% higher than in Elgin. This suggests that perhaps Manchester 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.
