Hi,
I have 88 errors on my website http://www.thai-discovery.com but I had a look at my competitors and they have a lot more then me and rank fine in google and appear in the first page of a search.

I even look at this websites homepage and there was 22 errors.

Either the website I am using is wrong http://validator.w3.org/ or we all have errors on our website and it doesnt really make a difference??

google doesnt validate, however i would be cautious of errors such as multiple head and body tags which your page had as the robots might have problems crawling your page then not helping your rankings.so it may depend on the errors

What is wrong with my head and body tags?

I don't think he was talking about your page in particular.

I'd say validation errors are and indicator of possible future problems as browsers change. If it all works now (in all browsers) then you're probably OK for a while. Again as long as you don't have problems like multiple head and body tags, etc.
