The king of Black Hat SEO, Matt Marlon has been arrested, but not on scamming SERP’s from clients. He’s moved on from his shady SEO business to scamming people out of their mortgages and ruining their credit. Matt Marlon arrested!!!!!!!
He’s been charged with 32 felony counts, and investigators are looking for more victims. You may have been a victim of his mortgage scam, or you may be a victim of his SEO scam. If so, please call the Secretary of State’s Securities Division at 486-2440.
I’ve contacted Danny Sullivan, who’s editor Kevin Heisler posted about Matt Marlon the CEO of Traffic Power, (see comments – Danny isn’t with SEW anymore like I thought he was – his post is here) and also Aaron Wall posted about the Traffic Power CEO. I can only hope they dig up this story from their archives and call this thieving bastard out for what he is.
When I saw the link, it was the most magically weird moment I’ve had for a long time. 2008 owns.
Haaaappy New Year!!! I hope that douche hangs himself in jail.
“HORSESHIT” can now be heard echoing throughout the prison cells now…
I wonder when the ramblings about being a phoenix will start?
Sorry, Julie — I never got your message. I don’t work for Kevin Heisler, and he’s not my editor. I left Search Engine Watch in December 2006 for my new site at Search Engine Land. Kevin is the executive editor over there. Sounds like you must have used a form there thinking you were sending to me, and I suppose they never passed that message on.
Hey Julie.. We were excited about the news too. Trust me, the feds are on to his other previous antics and he will eventually get prosecuted for those too. This latest scam is just the tip of the iceberg. He’ll never see life outside of prison ever again.
Sorry about that Danny, and yes, I thought I was sending that to you.
[...] the CEO of traffic power has been effectively removed, and personal comments from people from the company roll in, it will be a hard time for folks who now need to go back and try to get back what they [...]
well we all knew it would happen eventually but with a scam that he had to realize that he would get caught. even the powerful Matt Marlon (LOL) can’t hide from this one.

HAHAHAHA!!! fuck you, buttfucker!!! You deserve everything you get!
CRAP! I saw this and thought it said 2009 then realized he got off on the charges. DAMN HIM!
Matt Marlon is at it again….stealing people’s money thru a similar scam. Claims his “online newspaper” has been in business since 2004. He’s got numerous complaints against him with the labor board, a sexual harassment case pending against one of his current employee’s and he’s still stealing people’s hard earned money.
matt marlon the new con of 2011 claims religeon and helps little boys and girls hope they dont grow up to be the evil shit stain that the real matt marlon the grand scum of las vegas
Thanks for your comment Tim. Why the change of heart?
I currently work for Matt at City News Local. I have a sales position where we call companies trying to get the 1st page placement on google maps. As I can see thru some investigating, he is most likely up to his old tricks of scamming and trickery. I am going in this morning to explain to him that I can’t be a part of a company that may or may not be legit. Thank you for your help. And might I add this is the rudest most vulger man I have ever met. Constantly screaming the f word in the office and screaming at all employees.
can someone post matt marlons home and work address and phone #s it would be good to discuss how he will repay the funds he stole from me
matt marlon has a long history of suddenly not paying his employees he is a major criminal and will never stop. any body that does any business with him will definte get screwed over
