Today i got a mail from someone asking for a link exchange with a PR5 site resource page, http://www.example.com/resources/index.html
But the strange thing is when i tried to open the page in my browser, i saw momentarily it was http://www.example.com:80/resources/index.html and after that it changed to http://www.example.com/resources/index.html
what is that :80 for... a redirection!

Also just qurious to know, does link juice come from igoogle page, coz, i checked, there was no "nofollow" tag present.

The ":80" just tells the browser to connect to the site on port 80, which is the usual web port. Not sure why it'd show up like that.

Thanks adwatson for ur reply.
Now i am sure outlook is the reason behind it, coz i send myself a mail with my own url and when i click the same thing happens.
Btwn, do you have any idea regarding my other question? i tried here and in google but could not find any answer.

Yes it's clicking a link direct from the email in your outlook.

"asking for a link exchange with a PR5 site resource page"

Make sure the TBPR isn't fake. More importantly, make sure the resource page isn't on a crap site.
