New submission from Nelson Elhage firstname.lastname@example.org:
This request might be out-of-scope for this bugtracker, but I suspect that something is causing Google to actively downweight docs.python.org in its search results, and want to request someone investigate.
I would expect, for instance, a search for [python set] to turn up https://docs.python.org/3/library/stdtypes.html#set _somewhere_ on the first page of results, but it does not. In fact, the only python.org result I see is for the long-deprecated Python 2 `sets` module -- https://docs.python.org/2/library/sets.html
Similarly, [python shuffle list] does not turn up https://docs.python.org/3/library/random.html -- or any other python.org site -- _anywhere_ in the first page of results.
These results are egregious enough to make me suspect you're being actively downranked for some reason, which is hopefully identifiable and fixable by a site admin using Google's search tools at https://developers.google.com/search
