|Different results with Google operators link: and site: mixed|

This is probably a dumb question as I am so tired and I am n00b with SEO, but...
Why am I getting many more results if I query google:
than if I simply do:
Isn't the first query supposed to filter out results from the same site?

I tried it with one of my company's websites ("link:threewordphrase.com -site:threewordphrase.com") and it suggested "link:three word phrase.com -site:expectantmothersguide.com". Note the spaces.
For some reason Google is seeing "link:threewordphrase.com" as a search term, not as an operator.
(Note: Although threewordphrase.com does exist, it is not actually my company's website. I was merely using it as an example.)

Searches that combine more than one advanced operator are often dysfunctional these days.
