I know how to change meta tags in my main html page (the one that does a call to the gwt's bootstrap script)...

But I do not know how could I add the <meta name="robots" content="noindex"> in the header of my "error page".

Any solution including uibinder would be interesting.
Thanks you,

What error page are you referring to?  Do you mean the 404 or 502 errors returned by your web server?  If so, I don't think GWT or UiBinder has anything to do with that, and you just need to add the <meta> tag to whatever file your web server is configured to serve for those errors.

If you mean something else, please clarify.

Ok, I mean that my site has some pages 'under construction'. For example, if you click on the 'foto menu' so I will not show www.mysite/foto but www.mysite/error...(my error page explains that my site is under construction but I do not want this page indexed or referenced by the google search).

I have used webmaster tool to remove this url from google search, but in a more general way, I would like to properly indicate the meta tag NO FOLLOW.

And to generalize a little more my problem, let s imagine that I have to add other meta tag (, or the description/keywords of my page) what is the code to add these meta tag in the header ?

Thanks you,

Here is an example for setting the description meta element

public static void setMetaDescription(String description){

NodeList<Element> nodes = Document.get().getElementsByTagName("meta");

for( int i = 0; i < nodes.getLength(); i++ ){

MetaElement meta = (MetaElement)nodes.getItem(i);

if( "description".equals(meta.getName()) ){
