Lubbock Ranks Amongst Least Expensive Markets for Google Adwords in USA

SEP's ongoing research into PPC Campaigns has revealed that Lubbock was the 126th least expensive city in USA in keyword bids in Google Adwords for the month of December 2014. Lubbock also ranks amongst the least expensive cities in Texas, ranking as number 18th. In the study, San Buenaventura ranked as the most expensive city in the country, while Manchester ranked as the least expensive city.

Google Adwords Keyword Prices 59% Higher in Lubbock than Mesquite

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 Lubbock are 59% higher than in Mesquite. The average price of a click in Lubbock is $11.26.

This price difference is understandable though, given the population of Mesquite is less than Lubbock, 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, Jersey City, and found the average price of a click in Lubbock was 26% lower than in Jersey City. This suggests that perhaps prices in Lubbock 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.
