Re: https://validator.w3.org/docs/why.html

Recommend adding this as the #1 reason to validate:

Google sends a bot out to parse your site. If it's chock-full of 
violations and errors, Googlebot is more likely to choke on it and/or 
misinterpret your message.

Validation is absolutely an asset for SEO.
