Strange results
Search for links presents oddities

I did a Google search on my site and clicked on the link for "see sites that link to www.mydomain.com" (or however it's worded). This came back:

"Your search - link:_BQHptLZTcgJ:www.mydomain.com/ - did not match any documents."

(I do have links, DMOZ, a PR6, two PR4s, and others -- but that's another Google story.)

Also, in the original search (for my domain name), I got an Amazon link back that, in its description, shows wording regarding my site, but when clicked yields an Amazon page selling a book I've never heard of. Needless to say, there is no mention of my company or domain name anywhere on that page. (Strangely enough, the subject matter of the book is relevant to my site, but why would a search for my domain come back with a link like this?)

Okay, I'm sleep-deprived this week, and readily admit I might just be missing something here. But these seemed very odd. Any ideas/explanations?
