Important information about the Embed a Site element

The Embed a Site element lets you display your external blog by embedding a URL in an HTML iFrame. However, this method has certain limitations.
For example, some external sites do not allow embedding on other platforms such as Wix. Also, any content you embedded on your site will not be responsive, even if the original content is. Learn more about iFrames and their limitations
In addition, search engines like Google don't consider any content in iFrames to belong to your site. This can affect your site's search engine optimization (SEO) and ranking in search results. You can improve your site's SEO by adding a Wix Blog and moving your content to it instead.
If you have a Wordpress blog that you want to embed, you can also import your blog posts directly into your Wix Blog.
