All Hail The Title Attribute

I came across an interesting tip via About
regarding the HTML title attribute. Always interested in advanced
accessibility and search engine optimization I thought I would give the
title attribute a go. Not only is it easy to implement, title
attributes provide a great way to annotate existing links without
disturbing the user experience with long text links. For example, if a
user mouses over your link and your hyperlinked text is vague they can
learn more about what they will find when they go - added encouragement
if you will - to click through thanks to your title attribute. I am
sure that the search engine optimization effects are debatable but if
the only benefit is enhanced usability and more refined accessibility,
then I say give the title attribute a try.
