While reading an article on SEO; it mentioned that the first step you should take after the page is completed; is to "validate" the html code. A link was given to a validator page, http://webdesign.about.com/od/valida...#htmlvalidator
So, being really curious; I went there and put in my index url, (which is strictly text, except for internal navigation and template pic). All design done with BV. It came up with 12 errors! Most were missing(<) or (>) signs.
Anyone know if it is normal for BV to make that kind of errors when generating simple text content?
Running my affiliate page resulted in 69 errors. Again, mostly missing (<) or (>) signs. I can't blame BV for all those because that page contains a lot of code from external sources!
Any SEO experts have a comment on how important "html validation" is to good SEO?
