Access Rules and Google

If you sent up “challenge” in Access rules for one country how does that effect Google’s search results?

Likewise if you set up “block” for one country how does that also effect Googles search results?

I’m guessing Google bot still Crawls and gets access. But is one’s SEO likely to be effected?

Does anyone have experience with this?

(reason I’m asking is because of manual scrapers - I was thinking of blocking for 3 months and then turning on again for 3 months etc - it’s country specific and the site get’s hit during specific non-busy months)
