Question regarding the link: operator and backlinks weight

I have been creating lots of website backlinks lately, and today when I checked in Google with the "link: " operator, a few of these are already showing up.

We all know that Google doesn’t show all backlinks by using this operator. So, what I am wondering is, when a backlink does appear, do you think it means it is a really valuable link? Maybe it has “significant weight/juice” as a result?

I am thinking that Google values it much higher than link directory and blog comment backlinks and similar, since those rarely show up when using the "link: " operator. Thoughts?

If so, it would be prudent to gather more backlinks similar to those that are showing up when performing this backlink search.

What appears in the small sample that google shows in response to the link: operator is totally random. Ignore what you see and do not jump to any conclusions based on what you see.

You’ll find a much more extensive list of backlinks for your website within Google Webmaster Tools. Have you checked that out?
