All Hail The Title Attribute

Posted on 1.09.2006
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.
