Is there a site, or a way to search ONLY blogs and message boards (like this one)?

Could a search engine be coded to only crawl forums for example? Like only identify sites that have a php or vbulletin board running and crawl all posts within it?

Hi Guys

Sorry off the topic but really looking for an answer on this one. Busy doing a newsletter and thinking of using it!

Something else I just found, someone posted a link in a blog that will use a Google search phrase to list your site in the resluts. Just tested it a bit and it seems to work. Though I don't imagine the crawlers will like it. But at least it will create some popularity for a search phrase, even if it is vague. try this link and see what I mean.

'Hotels in Mallorca' as the link text
http://www.google.com/search?q=mallorca ... 8&oe=UTF-8

Any comments?

That's not what I mean. I am reffering to a site like Google, where running a search would bring up relative pages from forums and/ or blogs.

Meaning the site would crawl ONLY sites like Ozzu and related discussion forums and blogs.

For message boards you can try http://www.big-boards.com/

You can't mass search forums but you can find related forums to the topics you want.
