# How to tell Google only crawl direct links?

On the "separate simple HTML file" you created, add the following to the <head>

<meta name="robots" content="noindex">


That will instruct Google and other search engines who respect the directive to not index that specific page but will follow the links on that page.

If you really are only interested in Google's index, then use

<meta name="googlebot" content="noindex">


Indexing and crawling is a surprisingly complex subject, and if you want to learn more, I quoted the above information directly from a Google help page, so you may want to start there.
