Google’s Matt Cutts: Google Does Not Penalize For Broken HTML

In a video published today by Google’s head of search spam, Matt Cutts – Google confirmed that they do not penalize sites that have broken or invalid HTML. Matt Cutts said, “so Google does not penalize you if you have invalid HTML, because there would be a huge number of web pages like that.” Cutts went on to explain that if they did use the validity of HTML as a ranking signal, it would currently hurt search quality.
