If you mean "is it really nuts how fractured the local ad space is", then the answer is "yes". Local online media has been very fractured for a very long time, meaning that in order to get very wide coverage for a local market, one may need to promote on a great many sites or via an ad network which gets you placement in many places at once.
However, to achieve sufficient coverage to get good-enough increases in business referrals and associated ROI, it may only be necessary to advertise in a select few places or networks. Testing is vital to establish.

who is at the top of your list in paid local ad platforms?

WebmasterWorld generally wants us to avoid commercial endorsements in the forums, so I'm going to stay silent on my list.
However, it's not hard to locate a number of local ad networks, and, as I suggested, testing is vital. What works well for one business/industry might not work well for another.

Silvery, I think an exception to the policy is in order here, as a list of recommended platforms would benefit the members.

since the mod gave the OK, i'll just ask if anyone has used citygridmedia to do local advertising, from the outside the platform looks really slick.
