    If you need a more concrete answer you will need to provide more details about the exact type of document you are referring to, and the metadata you want to include.

    Assuming you are asking metadata related web sites, metadata is used to describe the content through page titles/ keywords/ descriptions etc. Search engines use these keywords when adding a web site. More info is here: https://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/metadata
    However, more information is needed.

    It's more complicated to explain how not to include it. Metadata is automatically included in every Word document for example.

    If you create a plain text "document" with Notepad, there will be no metadata in the document, and no metadata can be included without changing the document type to something other than plain text.

    But if a document type supports metadata, it's almost guaranteed that some will be included. Note that "document type" is more than simply choosing an extension.

    Perhaps you are asking about including metadata that isn't naturally supported by the document trype...?
