Connecting to Secure Hotspots Around the World

Authors list

Did you know that members of the Penn community can seamlessly and securely connect their laptops, tablets, and phones to over 6,000 free wireless hotspots at universities, research centers, and other research and education institutions in more than 85 countries around the world? Penn participates in eduroam (education roaming), a global initiative that allows users (faculty, staff, students, researchers, etc.) from participating institutions to securely access the Internet from any eduroam-supporting institution. 

No more scrambling for temporary or guest credentials when you visit other participating universities and institutions—in fact, enabling eduroam will allow you to skip typing passwords entirely. Your device will identify a valid eduroam access point and automatically log in, while never sharing your password with any access point or non-Penn organization. To take advantage of eduroam, be sure to first enable it on each of your computers or devices while you are still on Penn’s campus network. To begin your eduroam setup visit:

Important Notes and Links

Note that your eduroam identity must take the format “[your PennKey]”, which may differ from your Penn email address. Use your PennKey password as you normally would.

You all know that what google search does. Google Search Index is really useful despite of some <a href="">Google indexing issues and problems</a> we have all seen before many times. Pages are not getting into Google Index and they are lost.

you serach so many times and it really does not come up with any search keyword. The fact behind this is you page is not indexed because of some sitemap errors or htaccess files problems.

Find out which of your pages have been crawled and indexed by Google. In this episode of Search Console and how to use the Index Coverage report to assess its status and identify issues.

So many people out there tell me that I have tried to index only the url of my sitemap, but still they are still showing in search engines without title and description.

I know this is generated when the robots.txt blocks the url, but my robots.txt does not block any URL.

Google cannot index the web in real-time, it’s impossible, so when you make changes you have to wait a few days to a few weeks for those changes to be reflected in the index.

What am I creating?

So I am creating? I am creating a software program which is a solution to this problem. I could then finally be able to report those pages which are not indexed correctly which helps you check your Google Search Console as soon as possible and remove the source of problem.
