I emailed this message to the developer of the plugin but I figured it couldn't hurt to post it here as well.
Here is a screenshot of my dashboard. You will notice that the last two posts have a red ball under the SEO column, indicating that the SEO is bad.
If I click the Vitamix and weight loss - Dijon Chicken marinade entry, the SEO button near the publish widget indicates that the SEO is good.
My question is - are these two different indicators? Does the SEO button on the dashboard have a different function then the SEO button on the post page publish widget?
