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 Arlington are 78% higher than in Hampton. The average price of a click in Arlington is $13.01.

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

To understand if prices in Arlington are relatively low, we also compared prices with Fremont which has a similar population, and found the average price of a click in Arlington was 54% higher than in Fremont. This suggests that perhaps Arlington 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.
