Google Adwords Keyword Prices 31% Higher in Memphis than Independence

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 Memphis are 31% higher than in Independence. The average price of a click in Memphis is $12.49.

This price difference is understandable though, given the population of Independence is less than Memphis, 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, Seattle, and found the average price of a click in Memphis was 44% lower than in Seattle. This suggests that perhaps prices in Memphis 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.
