I certainly think that it is important to do w3c validation in terms of SEO, if there are errors it certainly don't help the spider to crawl through the code and which may affect.

You might think so, but it's simply not true.

What if you had a error something like this?

CODE
<title My Just For Kicks Page Title</title>

Try it in a couple different browsers.

Of course, but that's a major html error. Not the same thing as most of the errors that w3c validators provide you with.

Generally speaking, if the code is good enough to display reasonably correctly in major browsers, it's good enough for the SEs to parse. Being "valid" (or even "clean") won't gain you anything for SEO, particularly once you understand the SEs discard any code they don't absolutely need.

(Reference: Vanessa Fox video interview, recorded back when she worked for Google -- the relevant part is a couple of minutes in, within the context of debunking the code-to-text-ratio myth.)
