Google link: Search Does Not Work

For those who don’t know, there is a Google search function – link: that will help to find out what sites link to a website. So, for this site, you’d type in and get the list. The problem is, this is not list. It tells next to nothing.
Maybe I’m doing something wrong (not according to Google though) but the actual list of links back to this site is somewhere around 40-50 in any given month. For another site I maintain, Belden Place, doing this type of a Google search will net only 10 or less results, when there are at least 200 sites that backlink. What gives? Why doesn’t this work? I’m kinda at a loss, since Google will more than likely have at least the bulk of this information, right? I could see being 60-75% accurate, but as it is, they sem to be somewhere around 10-25% accurate in their listing. Plus, the listings will often have your own site linking back to itself.
Maybe they’re just not bothering, since they have Google Analytics now or, well, I just don’t know. It all just goes to show that you have to have your own logs if you really want to know what’s going on. If you don’t, get the aforementioned Analytics, or if you run your own server, dig in to AWStats. Despite all of Google’s slickness, I think that AWStats is still the better bedfellow when it comes to your server stats.
