I get caught out a lot by the titles Google is showing for pages quite often too, but as far I can tell they are not related to the /dev docs.

If I Google "python builtins" the top 3 results, for me, are as follows:

2. Built-in Functions — Python v2.7.6 documentation -> http://docs.python.org/library/functions.html
28.3. builtins — Built-in objects — Python 3.3.3 documentation -> https://docs.python.org/3/library/builtins.html
Built-in objects - Python 3.3.3 documentation -> http://docs.python.org/library/__builtin__.html

The top two are fine, but the last one is a Python 2 docs page but Google shows the title as being for 3.3. This seems to be really common when googling for python docs. 

At least the design of the two versions is different enough that you spot it immediately, but it happens often enough to be confusing all the same!

When I do a google search the version numbers are mismatched with the linked page (or redirected).
For example search for "python counter" I get the following results. (see attachment)
It seems like the website is redirecting incorrectly.
