    I use the footprint "Powered by vBulletin" to scrape vBulletin forums, but i do get wikipedia sites, youtube and imdb in the results. What is the problem?

    You need to add on to that footprint try also adding: inurl:forum

    Or something like: "currently active users"

    This is going to happen when scraping. Remember that when using a keyword in quotes like that, SB is going to pull every result that has that phrase somewhere on the page. This isn't always going to be a vbulletin forum.

    If you want more accurate results, use operators like inurl:, and find common url characteristics of vbulletin platforms.
