How Important is W3C Validation

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

How important is it for good google ranking to have a site that passes W3c validation ?

 

My site although doing well from the direct traffic we get from specialist forums and facebook, i think we are lacking visits from organic search engine searches ?

 

Thanks

Darren

If it finds a broken piece of code, where the code doesn't work at all, then that needs to be fixed. Otherwise, it doesn't make any difference.

It does make a difference when you use tags properly. Search engines can prioritise information based on its relevance.

 

Generally speaking, W3C is mainly aimed at getting websites and browser to adhere to standards. Remember back in the 90s when rarely a website would look the same on different browsers.
