Not clear to me, but I want to feed links on my page to search engine, but not page itself

can this be done with noindex,nofollow or is there some other way ?

what do you mean feed links, but not page?

noindex - prevents link juice from flowing to the link
nofollow - prevents the page under the link from indexing (however if someone else is linking to that page without the nofollow - it WILL be indexed)

so I'm not sure what you need

simple , the search engine that I'm interested in allows to manualy submit certain page, and that page gets indexed prompt. That is all links on page are readed and spidered into depth.

But main page itself means nothing, it is there only for search engine to be able to spider my site, i.e. things that would not otherwise be spidered.



main page - link1
- link2
-link3
-....

Why does it matter if the parent page itself is indexed or not?

I don't want users to surf somewhere, related to my domain, and that somewhere is not designed, posibly containing info in form that I dont want to reveal , ....

As said only usable for seach engine.

Is that practice not frowned upon by the search engines? If it's available to the search engines it should be available to everyone. It sounds like you have a poorly designed setup that needs altering rather than trying to mask content or hide it. Either that or you are creating a setup of dubious nature intentionally?

Ok - practical example:

1. photo galery, with 20 photos per page, order by date desc
so last added photo comes first - reasons for that are obvious
2. search engine finds photo of daisy on that 1-20 of x photos
and marks it as there
3. daisy in time moves to 3,4-th,... page
4. search engine still points to page 1

see the reason ?

That makes sense. I should think just a straight "noindex" or "noindex, follow" is what you want. You could add noarchive in there too, just to be on the safe side.

Might be worth having a peek at this page:

you need to use robots.txt to prevent any parts of your site from indexing
