I suggest doing all you can to be on google maps if you are a local business. As mentioned above, it is almost always at the top of the page, so great positioning. There are many ways to get to the maps, and eventually I would think folks will use the maps feature to look for a plumber or a hair stylist. RIght now, I agree it might be a bit limited.

Google seems to be doing their normal thing. Roll it out for free, even if imperfect, and let the users fix it. Then by osmosis or viral means it takes off. I'm shocked at how few folks know about google documents, for instance, but some day both docs and maps will be pervasive, I think.

Coupons haven't brought any biz to my clients, but they're free, so for a few minutes of activity, they have another presence.
