SEO basics?
Quote:the PageRank number has nothing to do with whether your site follows standards or not, it's based on the PageRank of the pages that link to yours.
You are both right and wrong. From Google's own PageRank blurb:

"Google combines PageRank with sophisticated text-matching techniques to find pages that are both important and relevant to your search. Google goes far beyond the number of times a term appears on a page and examines all aspects of the page's content (and the content of the pages linking to it) to determine if it's a good match for your query."

That means, boys and girls, how your document is constructed can be just as important as what your document is about. Furthermore, other (less sophisticated?) search engines will not scan an entire document, but rather concentrate on headings (<h1>, <h2>, etc.) and early paragraphs (<p>). If the search bot has to wade through lists of links before it gets to the meat and potatoes, the good stuff might not be found. The easier the site is to find on any search engine, the more PageRank mojo you are likely to get because you will get more "quality" links. Things like nested layout tables will make the relevant content harder for search engines to find.

Finally, let me present you with the icing on the cake. Embracing web standards will result in faster page loading times due to less bandwidth overhead from the smaller, easier-to-render documents.

For more on web standards, let me modestly point you to this extremely popular document.
