Place the operator in a layer that you can turn off.
I have a layer called "Temporary SEO wireframe".
Turn it on to perform the SEO and then it should be off in all of your layer combinations so you don't see it in the model views.
And I set that layer to wire frame as well so I don't see solid operators when the layer is on - but that is a personal choice.
So long as the operator still exists in the hidden layer, the SEO will still be in effect.
The good thing is you can now adjust the operator and the SEO will change accordingly.
