    Anyone have any ideas on how I can get my 23 Errors fixed.

    I do not know how to Code but really would like my Errors fixed before I release my site live.

    Also, don’t forget that W3C validation is used for accessibility and w3c standards compliance – it is not an SEO tool. It is not always possible to achieve perfectly ‘valid’ site (especially WP site) without losing any functionality.
    You should ask yourself, how much does the validation improve your sale conversions and user experience? And on the other side, how are the customers affected if the site does not validate (how does it affect them)?

    I see on daily basis site owners spending too much time (and money) on things like SEO and validation, while they should be concentrating on marketing, content/products and service, and complaining that their business is not doing well.

    Please, I can’t stress it enough, get your priorities right!

    Kind regards,

    Richard

    Richard, thanks for the info.

    I thought my site had to be Error Free or Google would push my site down below another company that was Error Free.

    I am learning here.

    Brandon, I had a look at the W3C validation report and most of the ‘errors’ were due to the use of meta tags used by FaceBook and Google (and which are not part of the W3C HTML standards) – so in this case, even though your site is not ‘validating’ it actually is not a fault, but benefit as the special meta tags are there to help you rank better.
