             The +vbulletin can be change to +phpbb, +invision, +smf, +ubb.

+vbulletin, +phpbb, +invision, +smf, and +ubb are the forum platform.

"SEO tips" "keyword" +forum +vbulletin
If you want to add a specific domain extensions like for country: .uk, .pl, .nl, .dk and many more. Just add this syntax: +site: .us

 "SEO tips" "keyword" +forum +vbulletin
With this syntax, you can find a thread or post from a forum site that talk about seo tips that support vbulletin platform with the domain extension of .us.

Another syntax,

  1. keyword inurl:forum
  2. keyword inurl:board
  3. keyword inurl: phpbb
  4. keyword inurl:viewtopic 
Again, if you want to show a specific domain extionsion just add +site: to the syntax. It's very simple to find with your niche, right?

If you want to find a forum in your niche for forum profiling,

You can use also this syntax:
keyword "powered by smf" inurl:/forums
                    The powered by smf can be change to powered by phpbb.

Tips: Try to browse the site and click a sample member. If the member page is viewable without log-in. It's time to register but if you can't view it, just skip it.
