    If I use the direct link rather than embedding on my site, will it be counted a valid form view?

    Will I get fewer spam crawlers on my forms if I use the direct link rather than embedding on my site?

    The new form limits are not handy for me, so I need to reduce views.

    Hello bridgerjones,

    Please be noted that whenever a form is loaded in the browser, it is counted as a valid form views. If you add your form's URL in your webpage and when your webpage is loaded, it will not be counted as form view until the user clicks on the form link explicitly. 

    On your issue related to Form Vies Limits, there are additional 2 options which we can offer you :

    #1. We can double the current form view limits of your account. You can have a total of 2,000 monthly form views on your account.

    #2. We can completely remove the form view limits, but you will have to agree to add footer with the JotForm's logo on all of your forms. Showing the JotForm logo is completely optional and you can any time enable/disable it form your account setting page. Please check the screenshot below:

    Thank you!
