How do you spoof an IP?Can't really since the remote machine needs a response header. You can compromise another IP address and use it to connect to remote servers but storage becomes the issue. You could set-up relays to additional addresses but if the bandwidth is substantial, the activity would quickly be discovered leaving a trail.
could the third party make a bot appear human to detection?Absolutely
Again, they'd need to spoof IPs.I don't see why. IPs are easy to hijack, no spoofing necessary. As said earlier, there's also anonymous VPNs. You can even purchase routers that will change IPs dynamically using a dump.
@keyplyr We don't use the Google Publisher Toolbar. Could you please elaborate on how you think this could be responsible?
The third party is Google.You may want to consider that just because the IP range may be assigned to Google, your visits may in fact be from someone else entirely. Google has may ranges, used for many things. They lease huge amounts of space to anyone who wants to pay them for it, much like Amazon or any other server farm.
