I am confused with the relationship between the "noindex" Meta tag and Sitemap, hope you can throw some lights here:

Questions:

1. Is it ok to switch on "noindex" to a Category, i.e. to stop search engine from indexing the Category and at the same time, to keep it (the Category) in my SItemap?

2. My concern is if the Googlebot stops crawling a page, will it also ignore it from the Sitemap?

Thank you!

No Index means what it say's , it will not be scrutinized by the algorithm for indexing purposes, on any page thus marked usually on Policy pages etc .

this NI stuff does not have to be "honoured" by the Search Engines, but is, for the most part, right?
