A site I manage, we don't do PPC, no need for it, really. Old Domain, tons of inbound links, it's a BRAND.
PPC company sets up a proxy over a site and has AddWords traffic pointing to a diff subdomain but Same URI, but with the same content as original site. DNS Proxy. Caught Goog Ads bot going thru that proxy for every URL possible on the site.
Goog ate 403s due to reverse and forward lookups(;)). Headers Babby! headers!
Header is sent to a regular visitor when visited via proxy: noindex, not sure what goog bot gets from it.
We have a pretty steady traffic for the past several years on this site. Good Global Sales!
Will above trigger any kind of negative issues with our normal SERP?

Sounds like you should have no problems. The forward/reverse IP lookups for googlebot should have handled the situation on their own. The noindex is a nice safeguard too, but since it's not under your control it is best to keep the IP check in place.
