    As per the title, I'm testing a bot on one of my sites. I've tested the bot with dedicated SOCKS and HTTP proxies, but traffic is failing to show up in Google Analytics (I'm checking real-time data). Is this a known thing? Do I need elite proxies?

    Yep, Google's Analytics snippet (ga.js) registers real time visits with javascript, which can't be loaded through a server-side bot using proxies with cURL, telnet, etc.

    Try using a server-side webkit to load javascript, such as PhantomJS.

    You need javascript to be load and run and elite proxies, the same ip only counts 1 time a day, Analytics only count uniques
