Not sure it helps your search rankings much to be honest. As long as Google can spider your content without any problems then you should be fine. I think W3C is mainly for other things such as usability.

Those standards are really there for good practice. Its obivously good to follow som eof the set standards, but Google ain really gonna pay attention to that. According to the recent news about google rankings..just ensure that your website loads fast!

Actually Google (and other search engines) do rank sites based on criteria, including web standards. This is very important!

See http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=35769#2

Plus Google also has a very good channel on YouTube with a lot of Q&A on how to achieve good rankings.
