Google and Internal Linking

What is really going on? Is it just plain broke?

When I do a search for backwards internal links
within my site's pages, I am more often than not presented with 2 indivual pages, that have nothing in common and are nothing spectacular as in the way of content, inbound links, or anything else and presented with them as the link:http://domain.com pages. Never does my index.htm page, nor any other high ranking pages display as links
within the site. Just these two pages that Google seems to have just randomly chosen as the pages it wishes to display as internal links. With this occurring confusion reigns, as I am dumfounded as to how to proceed with internal linking and internal sitemaps. Has anyone else been presented with these confusing results when attempting to solve the riddle of internal linking?

Yes, it's nearly random and only quite partial. See Google link: operator FAQ - it's not like other search engines [webmasterworld.com]

On something similar that's quite random, when doing a
unique company name search, one time you are presented with
"more results from" your website, and then ten minutes later the "more results from" option disappears.
