Could anyone teach me the meaning of "for all the good it did...".

It's on the following sentenses of a novel.

Immediately, she (Laurel) heard her sister, Thalia, say, "You're wrong."
"What?" she said.
She looked around, but Thalia wasn't there. Thalia was in Mobile, or Timbuktu, or hell, for all the good it did Laurel.

Thalia's location [not being with Laurel] does not benefit Laurel's situation.
