Bit of a strange question, but the answer on the Internet I have not found.
Do I need to noindex (but not nofollow) to the html site map?
Here's how bambolo.ru/sitemap.htm
I'm afraid that the search engines on this page will result in the queries, not the target.
Or am I mistaken? how?
To make sure you can prevent indexing (noindex) but to allow the cross-links (follow):
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow">
The author of these lines, for example, does so in relation to the notes list blog.

You can not close noindexed, not likely the search engines don't know what a site map is a site map :)
Should not fool even
And in any case, then replace the relevant page is not so difficult (well, if all of a SUDDEN) sitmap begin to emerge in the results instead of the desired pages

Site map helps the search engines find and index all site pages. And hardly it will be relevant pages referenced.
