Google Adwords Keyword Prices 3% Higher in Queens than New York City

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 Queens are 3% higher than in New York City. The average price of a click in Queens is $15.19.

This price difference is understandable though, given the population of New York City is less than Queens, which generally means less competition and therefore lower prices.

To get a better sense of relative prices, we also compared prices with another city of equal population, Dallas, and found the average price of a click in Queens was 29% lower than in Dallas. This suggests that perhaps prices in Queens are 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.
