Let's say I have a products page with listing producsts and the page has pagination. I would like the 1st page to have all the SE ranking weight so I decided to put
meta noindex on the rest of the paginated pages (from page 2 to N).
My common sense says that if I don't want pages to not get indexed, I shouldn't also pass link/PR juice to these pages. (Is that smart?)
What happens if I set
rel="nofollow" for all pagination links from page 2 to page N?
