For instance, I would like to search on a website "3XX lessons". I know that Google allows "XXX lessons" with "* lessons", but how do you use the wildcard symbol for individual characters in a string?

    You can't do individual character wildcards in a Google search, but you can do a number range. Maybe 300..399 lessons will suit your needs. – ale Apr 4 '15 at 2:46

  • The tilde gives synonyms and word variants. While it may still work, it appears that Google no longer maintains it. See Rubén's answer at: webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/99496/… – Ryan C. Apr 26 '19 at 20:23
