If I do a search for site:www.example.com it brings up listings for another site that links to me. In my experience site: only brings up pages from that domain.
My question is :
1. Has anyone else seen this occur before.
2. Could the site that is appearing in the site: search somehow affect my ability to get the site listed?

It appears that they are using an off the shelf commerical linking system. I am in contact with the site owner to have the links to me removed. I am also getting in touch with the makers of the product to let them know the damage their script is causing.
This is a major flaw on googles behalf and i am going to write to them and let them know. I doubt they will just listen to me so anybody else that could contact them and complain about this flaw would be great.
I am sure that they are already aware of the problem and are trying to find a solution but more pressure from us will hopefully speed the solution along.

Why don't you buy some adwords to make up for it?
I would be interested in hearing from others, especially as regards solutions.
This will only work if the googlebot carries the referrer, which i doubt.
Other than this i am all out of solutions.
A question for anyone that has had this problem before.
The link exists in the following structure.
The owner of the site has removed the link... but if you type the link into google it still exists.
Do anybody have an idea how long can i expect before my domain will get indexed?
Any feedback will be great.

ask him nicely to remove it via here:
[services.google.com...] otherwise that URL (probably with your cache) might me stuck on the supplemental basket for months if not years.
I have tried robots.txt - no results
Contactet host and sites - got into HUGE discussion with different websites, that they are not doing anything wrong and many of them are right, they are just link with a special script wich pop up a redirecting and then Google get in trouble.
I will be hornest with you all - you can NOT do anything about this - you have to wait for Google to wake up or begining to care, I think it will first be fixed by actident, I dont think they go after the problem.
So wait for the nest Google update and hope for the best, one thing is for sure, we WILL see much more of this as soon the real spammers see this option.
This bug is also the reason why some build more sites, for safty.
