Hope question this applies to list
I use:
<meta http-equiv="robots" content="nofollow"> on my splash page to prevent
indexing of additional pages.

But what is the advantage of using the following tag on the other pages on
the site?
<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX,FOLLOW">

            The W3C says :     "Robots may traverse this page but not index
it."

What's specific benefit of "traversing" the page?  Does it just support
robot
indexing the page?  (in my case just the splash page.)
Specifically how does support?

The info. I've read doesn't describe the benefits of the "noindex, follow".
