Greensboro Ranks Amongst Least Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Greensboro was the 229th least expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of March 2015. Greensboro also ranks amongst the least expensive cities in North Carolina, ranking as number 6th. 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 39% Higher in Greensboro than High Point

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 Greensboro are 39% higher than in High Point. The average price of a click in Greensboro is $7.45.

This price difference is understandable though, given the population of High Point is less than Greensboro, 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, Newark, and found the average price of a click in Greensboro was 30% lower than in Newark. This suggests that perhaps prices in Greensboro 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.
