I wonder how country/IP block in htaccess could impact the metrics. I still see a lot of people from blocked countries hitting my 403 from Google search. I have blocked those countries for a reason, and they have been 403 for years. But, Google still ranks me there and not in the U.S. It's very frustrating. I wonder if I should remove the country block, and just risk the potential dangers that I encountered prior to implementation.
