I've never heard of a search engine supporting <noindex> in
(X)HTML.  Maybe you confuse this with atom as Jukka said, or
you want  <meta name="robots" content="noindex" />  But that
would affect the complete page, not only a part of it.

Or you confuse it with <meta name="robots" content="nofollow" />
Then you can try rel="nofollow" in links <a href="..."> etc.

                      Bye, Frank
