I felt the necessity to share with you the information I found below.

Matt Cutts recently confirmed that there is nothing in their algorithms 
that favors validated code:

However, almost any business depends on repeat customers. Your site 
traffic should show more
return visitors than new SE generated traffic in a short period if it is 
worth anything to anyone at all.

That's much harder to accomplish with sloppy code!
