I tried to use some of my visualforce pages as Dashboard component but did not see those pages in Data Sources list in Dashboard. Am i missing something? Do the visualforce page should have some qualities to appear in Data Sources for dashboard or to be used as Dashboard component?

As per the documentation (which you can find here) the Visualforce page must meet the following criteria to appear in the list of available components.

Visualforce pages that use the Standard Controller can’t be used in dashboards. To be included in a dashboard, a Visualforce page must have either no controller, use a custom controller, or reference a page bound to the StandardSetController Class. If a Visualforce page does not meet these requirements, it does not appear as an option in the dashboard component Visualforce Page drop-down list.
