First thing first, I'm very new the the SEO domain. I don't aim to become an expert, but to get enough knowledge to work on my own needs. Today I had a call from a partner of Bluehost that provide SEO services (I was directly refered from Bluehost). I was wondering if what they offered me was legit or if it wasn't. I know the company is legit, but what the person on the phone told me seemed a little bit off to me.
He said that (for example) for 199$/month, I get a Marketing assistant and they do backlinks for 3 keywords. He said that they wrote articles with those backlinks inside and that it is written in a special way so that only Google sees it.
I trust Bluehost, but I'm not sure if that is a legit way to get backlinks. Do you have an opinion on this?
