My list is very long and starts with the technical implementation of the server, then the URL structures, file relationships, and finally the coding methodologies, and semantic markup.

The web standards that can lead you to code the web page correctly and sematically.

A good sematcic markup can improve visibity in web searches, then you page ranking no longer will become higher. In luck, you can earn some from your someone who are willing to pay the links on your site.

Visibility in search engine, shorter page (less any extra codes), easier to redesign and to maintain, accessible design(it can be acccept by the browsers as much as possible)

Visibility in search engine

There can't possibly be a "standard" on this point because this is going to be specific to your target market. Not an expert in this area, but a safe zone is if you "optimize" your pages to target your visitors needs, you will naturally build sufficient keywords to rank well in search engines. So if **I** have a standard in this area, it's to build the site for the visitors, not the search engines.

- Make proper use of title, description meta, and img (alt attribute) elements, make sure they are unique.
- Do not bury links in Javascript

shorter page (less any extra codes)

- CSS for positioning of layout elements (not tables)
- Do not use inline elements, move the onto style sheets
- eliminate presentational markup completely from pages
- Use proper document semantics
- rigorously review image usage and optimize as well as possible

easier to redesign and to maintain

- Make use of CSS, SSI, PHP, or other tools to utilize redundant elements, such as naviagation headers, so that these elements can be altered in a single file.
- Design so that all pages follow a single template. This is a standard way of working that helps your visitors gain a familiarity with the GUI of your site.

accessible design(it can be accept by the browsers as much as possible)

- Always use a valid document type [webmasterworld.com]. Code to standards compliance mode.
- Always validate [validator.w3.org] every single page.
- If you use Javascript, **ALWAYS** have elements in place that allow visitors to access the information if Javascript is disabled or unsupported.
- Review the WAI guidelines [w3.org] every time you develop a site and make sure your content is completely accessible.

Additionally there are a list of specific server-side do's and do not's I follow, the list is long and specific to each project. Most of them involve security, safety, and organization for future development.
