    The question could relate only to the adult niche too, but not necessarily. Knowing how things work, I think that it is possible to generate fake traffic (with fake MAC addresses and IPs / geos) and go undetected for some time or for a long time. I mean, this would be like C or C++ programming and Linux networking or something like this. It is all 0 and 1 based in the end, and people come up with sophisticated ways of generating fake hits (or maybe not?).

    I would like to see what is the current state of this, and is it possible for people to get or create a software like this and use it without getting detected, and how hard is it to detect something like this? Is it possible, that it may be impossible to detect small amounts of fake traffic, lets say (like generating 10k daily only, lets say)?
