I'm not sure if this is something the compose team has any influence over, and I think it's been mentioned in the channel before, but googling for Compose documentation is surprisingly difficult. I know the priority at this time is actually building the thing, not optimizing SEO, but it seems weird to me that the official docs are ranked so low that it's almost always easier to just go to the main site and search manually.

Even going to the Android Developers website and using the built-in search only gives this (slightly different search query, but even more specific):
Finally, clicking on the suggestion to add the

This happens with almost any query. Best case is sometimes the first search result is the package overview for the thing I'm looking for.
