    This page explains it quite well

    http://www.dashboardjunkie.com/noindex-nofollow-canonical-and-disallow

    Basically no index means Google will not index the page, no follow means it will not follow any links on the page.

    <meta name="robots" content="index,follow"/> Well, here index follow means Google is going to index your page and will be giving you page rank. In this Google spiders will not index your whole website even your other external webpages.

    <meta name="robots" content="Noindex,Nofollow"/> Well, here NoIndex means Google will not crawl and Index your pages i.e. it will tell the search engine to refrain from following a link. It is basically invented for fighting against the spam.

    index, follow = Searchengines will crawl and index your pages and will follow links on it.
    noindex, nofollow = the opposite of the above

    index,follow means Google will crawl your entire site and index all the pages. while noindex, nofollow means it will neither index or crawl your whole website.

    <meta name="robots" content="index,follow"/>
    Search engine crawler will index your site and follow all the links...

    And <meta name="robots" content="Noindex,Nofollow"/>
    Search engine crawler will not index your site and not follow any links...
