I would like to insert these metatags, in all the internal pages of the site, less in the homepage

I wanted to inform google to only index my homepage, I wanted to insert this conditional in the head.php of my genesis installation.

<meta name = "googlebot" content = "noindex, noarchive, follow" />

I tested this code below but it did not work

if ( is_home() ) {

} else {
    <meta name="googlebot" content="noindex,noarchive,follow"/>

You will have to use this code.

<?php !is_home() : ?>
    <meta name="googlebot" content="noindex,noarchive,follow"/>
<?php endif; ?>

Keep in mind you are using php and you want to put some HTML within. You cannot simply write down everything like that.
