A little specificity would be helpful.

"machinery OR industry forum OR mailing list" Google search and waded through at least the first few pages.
I can find some machinery industry forum in all countries.
Next:
Path 1: search in results, "United Kingdom", full related information about machinery industry forum and mailing lists in United Kingdom, but not the forums and mailing lists.
Path 2: click "advanced search", choose Area search page locate in: United Kingdom (include all words: mailing list | machinery, 100 results, include at least one word: industry forum), I can find related forums and mailing lists far away from machinery industry in United Kingdom. (100 results)


So I try:
include all words: machinery (100 results)
include full sentences: industry forum
Area search page locate in: United Kingdom

I found less than 10 related forums. (100 results)

So I continue:
include all words: machinery industry (100 results)
include full sentences: mailing list
Area search page locate in: United Kingdom

I found 25 related mailing lists. (100 results)

Then I record them in a sheet
Website URL Country

All forums, mailing lists record in this sheet

Then type each Website URL in Alexa
Record Alexa Ranking

The sheet finaly will be
Website URL Country Alexa Ranking

Then use Alexa Ranking to rank the forums, mailing lists in a country

David, we do not help with school home work.

You will have to do you own research via Google or other search engines.

Please do not post such questions again.
