my motive was to keep gbot away from those listing pages... I just used nonidex... I did something right
Just for clarity, your are NOT keeping gbot away. It's happily munching its way through the NOINDEX pages, but will keep them out of SERPs.
To keep gbot off your pages, use robots.txt.
If you block pages in robots.txt, links will NOT be followed bacause they will not be found. If you NOINDEX a page, the links WILL be followed, and PR & PR-like data (relavance, semantics) will flow naturally.
