I recently stired up quite the discussion about website standards. Web standards and writing valid HTML code has always been important to me. I think that’s due to my programming background.
Does anyone else take the time to make sure that their website follows the rules? You can check this by visiting the W3C’s website validator. http://validator.w3.org/ just type in the address of your website into the first box and click check.
I look at it as a mark of quality. Especially if you’ve hired someone to build your website for you. It’s just like hiring a writer who makes spelling and gramatical mistakes. Your website is the image you present to the Internet. Having a correct site just makes you look that much better.
“Correct HTML” aka following the standards is listed in the Google Webmaster Guidelines.
