The importance is hard to make clear as this will vary from person-to-person, or company-to-company. I believe that a web developer should have an understanding of SEO best practices and the impact their code will have.
But going beyond that, doing keyword research, competitor analysis etc. this can easily be and often is a job in itself.
Treehouse has some good resources on this topic: SEO - treehouse library - https://teamtreehouse.com/library/q:SEO
But I would also recommend:
and of course:
Google Webmaster Guidelines - https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/35769?hl=en
Lastly, I would say that as a web developer, if you are already writing good semantic code, including things like alt tags, title tags etc, you will make users and Google happy in general :)
