How to find forums in your niche?
I wonder if there are some ways to find high quality forums in a niche related to your niche on Google for traffic and back links without wasting too much time surfing on forums or websites posts. I tried to find through Gogole but some forums are not quality or less traffic. I heard that advanced search is also helpful ways but how to use it? Any other tips about making this search process quicker or simpler?

you can search for relevant forums by placing your keyword into "quotes" and adding the word forum using the + symbol
Product is pinhole glasses.
You'd type: "pinhole glasses" + forum as your search term (Remember to add the " " around your keyword especially if more than one word and the +) then take your pick from the results
Also you can use your keyword with the + and add the word discussion!
"pinhole glasses" + discussion and again take your pick from the results

Try these search strings:
"Powered by Phbb" your keyword
"Powered by vBulletin" your keyword
"Powered by SMF" your keyword
"powered by IPB" your keyword
"powered by PunBB" your keyword

There are a few board search engines but none are very good. Your best bet is to use Firefox "dofollow" addon and just search Google for "topic" + phpbb or forum etc... and just manually check to see if they are dofollow with the addon.

There is no magic way to find quality forums. You have to seek them out and browse them to make a determination if they are a worthwhile forum or not.

You can easily find forums from google by searching your business related term. Make sure forum sites should be high DA/PA and also providing a dofollow link. It will definitely helps your website to improve ranking positions.

Install Mozbar and search for "keywords in your niche" + forum. Then choose the forums in SERPs that have good metric.

Agree with many that already posted. Here's some of my favorite search strings to find forums:
“forum” + “keyword”
“board” + “keyword“
“forum” + “keyword“
“latest discussion” + “keyword“

I usually just use the Google search engine when I want to find a good, high-quality forums for a specific niche. I think that if you simply do the search there you should get plenty of hits... just make sure that you're entering the right queries. For example, let's say I want to find quality forums about clothing. I would open up Google and type: clothing “powered by smf” site: /forum
You can obviously replace the ''smf'' with other software such as vbulletin or PhpBB and more. If you are still unhappy you can click the settings/more on the search bar and adjust the specific parameters.

You can always try web directories. Nonetheless, if the description doesn't indicate it's a forum, you might not find it. Anyway, there is a path around this situation and it involves forum directories, directories which consist of only forums.
Oh, by the way, there is also forum search engines. I ran into this strange thing while researching this post. Some of them are Omgili, BoardReader. Has anyone used these?

I think many people here have rounded up the best methods to find forums. Still, if you're looking for something to ease your burden a bit more (yes just a bit more but I think that will worth it), I suggest dropmylink. It can narrow down forums you want to look for. But as I said, it only ease a bit of your burden. You still have to check manually each forum, this tool only help you to get relevant forums you're looking for.

Another good method to find forums is to use Twitter. Just use some of the search strings that other people have suggested in the Twitter search bar. This will bring up forums in your niche that are active.

I find this comment here to be totally true. It is hard to find good ones, and it is hard to contribute to forums which are not appealing to you. Also, it is hard to build a rapport with forum members unless you have a base knowledge of the material which the forum is concerned with to begin with.

A quality forum would be one that has a rich array of information relevant to your niche of interest.

This is just helping to know if that forum is a quality forum or not, it doesn't help to find forums in your niche.
The best way is using Google by this formular:
Your niche keyword + forum
