Could you tell me if clicking on my Google website SERP's is bad for SEO?
I have noticed that after I click on my site SERP's my rating drops!

Let me explain I go to Google and type my keyword "abc" then I find my site and click on the link, every time I have to visit my site I do the same thing
Quote:Invalid clicks and impressions
Publishers may not click their own ads or use any means to inflate impressions and/or clicks artificially, including manual methods.
Clicks on Google ads must result from genuine user interest. Any method that artificially generates clicks or impressions on your Google ads is strictly prohibited. These prohibited methods include, but are not limited to, repeated manual clicks or impressions, automated click and impression generating tools and the use of robots or deceptive software. Please note that clicking your own ads for any reason is prohibited.

Also if you're clicking your SERPs from the same IP all the time google knows or whatever search engine you're using. They all know, lol.

I would have to totally disagree with you on that, especially more so if you use Google Analytics on your site as well.
