1. According to the Googleguide below, we can find the links to the
Google home page not on Google's own site by the search terms:

link:www.google.com -site:google.com
The result came out as 9,530 pages.

And we all know that finding the links to the Google is:
which came out as 3,830,000 pages.

So can we say that the pages which have links to www.google.com and are
in the site of google.com is around 3,830,000-9,530, which is

We executed this search by link:www.google.com +site:google.com,
coming out as 44 web pages.

Is that weird?

2. We continued to do another test on the same mechanism.
link:www.nsdl.org -site:nsdl.org which came out only one result. It is
obviously incorrect since if we do the link:www.nsdl.org. We can find a
bunch of web pages linking to this nsdl.org but not belong to itself.

So can anybody answer about this?

Some advanced search operators seem to bite each other. Don't know why.
