Well, my site is a local directory (free listings) and as I said they've been placing high in the serps, before and after local-google came about. My revenues were from adsense and other banner ads. I must say I was delivering significant (very significant!) number of clicks to adsense prior to local-google. I'm pretty sure most of the other local directories are in the same situation as I am. I wonder how much adsense revenue Google lost due to this since 90% of the traffic ended with the local-google results with no further exposure to adsense.
