This price difference is understandable though, given the population of Portsmouth is less than Chesapeake, 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, Gilbert, and found the average price of a click in Chesapeake was 9% lower than in Gilbert. This suggests that perhaps prices in Chesapeake 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.
