    Hi, Can someone tell me the best way I can find online popular/populated forums where business owners tend to migrate and visit? (particularly I'm looking for owners of auto repair and heating & air businesses).

    I've tried google but no luck. Is there search engine specifically for finding forums by chance?

    thanks!

    your best bet is to google these forums and the possible niche based forum keywords.

    Google is enough
    Have you tried these?

    1) keyword "powered by vbulletin" (change vbulletin with: smf, phpbb, invision, mybb, etc ) ex: auto repair "powered by vbulletin"
    2) keyword inurl:forumdisplay
    3) keyword inurl:viewtopic

    Good luck
