Bing's back links not so useful as they include adsense!

Bing seems to count an adsense ad as a backlink

Anybody else seeing this, link in google is not showing me enough so I tried links in Bing but they seem to be showing me pages on which the only entry for a company is the adsense link.

Does the link: operator work at all in Bing? When I try it, I always get "No results found".

It seems you don't use the link operator, rather you use:

"website.com" -site:website.com

Whatever that means!

That doesn't appear to work for me either. Could you please provide the exact format of the operator?
Thank you

EDIT: Okay, I got it to work now. I didn't understand the quotation marks part of it. Thank you

I saw that when Bing first took over MSN. While not funny it's not as sad as Bing providing links to websites that have hotlinked images from a 3rd party site. Bing images needs improvement badly.
