scan files contents to find specific text and output paths to those files and/or replace text

i have ssh access to this web server and I would like to search for presence of specific words in the site files - how can I do that?

we need to re-brand and even though the designers have changed images and the more obvious stuff - I came across a page that had meta tags that were out of date and contained the old company name...

i understand I can use something like this to replace texts, but how can I simply list files that contain the entry?
find . -name "*.html" -type f -exec sed -i 's/text1/text2/g' {} ";"
