---- Do you see much traffic from Google Maps, or Y or MSN Local

Google Local/Maps has been a bit of a disappointment so far. Maybe Google should drop the maps/local confusion. I have not met anyone who thinks this is not confusing. Local is LOCAL, maps mean MAPS to most.
I must agree with that assessment.
Local to me means coupons (which they added), reviews, comparisons, nearby businesses, etc.
While they have this at the detail screen, it's not easy to compare the information across different businesses, or just to find out what interesting events are nearby.
Google local is good mapping software, but it doesn't seem like a comprehensive destination site for local users.
