I have had a prominent site with a cookie consent form now for over 2 months. The site is not able to be accessed by anyone , no matter from which country, unless they consent or decline to accept my site's cookies.If they decline, I produce a cookie free version of the site.
I was always anxious that the obvious percentage of people clicking back would affect my serps.My rankings have dropped a little so it maybe the case.
