Using the Title Attribute to Help Users Predict Where They Are GoingOne of the greatest problems on the web is that users don't know where they are going when they follow links. Web browsers have the ability to pop up a short explanation of a link before the user selects it. Such explanations can give users a preview of where the link will lead and improve their navigation:
•bad links are less likely to be followed; users will waste less time going down the garden path
•increasing users' understanding of good links helps them interpret the destination page upon arrival and reduce disorientation
The link explanation is called a link title and most browsers display it in a tooltip.
As explained in the article it is pretty easy to add the link title attribute to your web page coding of links.
