      W3C Markup Validation gives you the guarantee that search engine crawlers will be able to accurately read the code on your web page and index it correctly. If the crawlers cannot read the code correctly then they will leave your pages be and won't index them in their search results. Validation also ensure that all browsers and operating systems render your core correctly, although sometimes even validated code can render differently on different operating systems / browsers to what you had originally in mind.

      You want the code to be readable by Google and other search engines, whether it validates is secondary. W3C markup validation does not take long and is not hard to do. Just do it for the peace of mind.

      Markup validation is simple, but depending on how many web pages you are maintaining the task can take hours.

      You need clean code - YES - not validation.

      Should I just ask my web developer to validate the code?

      Yes, speak with your web developer about W3C validation. You want to ensure the technical quality of web pages.

      I would think a web developer would be more suited for code validation than an SEO expert. good luck!
