Forum moderator Jonathan Hochman (jehochman) noticed a post on Matt Cutts’ blog asking people to vote for what features they’d most want added to Google’s Webmaster Tools.
Jonathan thought it was curious that one of the proposed features would tell webmasters which pages on their sites don’t validate. He wondered why Google would do that if they don’t care about pages that validate.
As I posted in the thread, I don’t believe that Google cares one iota about pages that validate to W3C specifications, and that most likely Matt was just throwing out some topics that people ask him about a lot. However, many others don’t share my beliefs.It’s a 5-page thread (as I write this), but a great discussion!
