In simple words metadata is just the data in your salesforce ORG that does not constitue as customer data.

Analogy: If in an excel sheet all rows are data. All the columns and the sheet itself would be called metadata.

Example all the objects and fields, Validation rules, Worflow rules are all called metadata.


Hope this helps!

Thanks

Metadata is basically "data that describes other data".
For example, in Salesforce you can query data like this:
SELECT FirstName FROM Contact WHERE FirstName='Mike'
Salesforce also provides metadata tables that describe code and configuration:
SELECT Id FROM ApexClass WHERE ApiVersion < 25

Those are some typical metadata elements:

Tags and categories,
Who created and when,
Who last modified and when,
Who can access or update.
