Validation of HTML/CSS at W3 Standards

Validation of HTML/CSS at W3 Standards

Never leave an
HTML
error on your web page. Open and check your
website in different web browsers. Make sure
things are aligned well, there is no font
missing and colors are visible.

If your site has
HTML
errors, the
Search engine spider
might not be
able to crawl properly. Also the usability
of your site will decrease. So it’s better
to keep a check on the code. Make it error
free.

Top 3
Reasons your code should be error free
:

  1. Search engine spiders won’t be
    able to
    crawl
    your site easily. They
    calculate page download time. So you
    might receive a lower  SEO score.
  2. Browsers behave very different for
    single
    code
    . Check code for IE and a
    Firefox user might receive an error or
    might not be able to view the page at
    all. This can result into higher bounce
    rates.
  3. You will get negative points, if you
    have
    broken links
    in your site. Also
    if the links lead to pages that does not
    exist at all.

Tip:
How to find broken links in your blog or
website

The best way
to check that your code is correct

to World
Wide Web Consortium
(W3C)
standards and guidelines. W3C is the
organization which sets standards for
various internet technologies like HTML CSS

  1. I have written a tool that takes the pain out of doing full website validation. It crawls your entire site and validates each page found using the W3 api and then produces a report for you. Check it out!
