Black hat SEO focuses on search engines and not so much a human audience. Some techniques in black hat SEO are blog content spamming, hidden text and links.

White hat SEO refers to the strategies such as keywords, keyword analysis, doing research, backlinking and link building.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
