    OP its doesn't really matter, every writer has its own writing style. Not going to impact your ranking unless you are using duplicate content. I personally like it green.

    It is just actually a guide, but you can ignore it. Just make sure your content is really readable.

    I find that its pretty inaccurate unless you write like a robot. If you are a fairly good sales/copywriter, there are some grammar rules that are broken in order to make your copy sound more persuasive. Using elipses, shorter sentences, more spaces, etc seems to make most of my content appear in the orange/red zone for yoast. Its a load of shit anyway, just like the keyword density. IIRC it doesn't count instances where a letter from the keyword is capitalized or allow for LSI variations (on the free version anyway).

    Its only useful for some of its default settings and ease of noindexing content and setting meta data

    Having green signal is good sign but it is not mandatory.
    It depends on you whether you gonna have it or not. But trust me, it is worth to have green signal :)

    I don't make anything in yoast green. It's just a plugin for adding SEO Title and Description
