    You’re welcome. However, you should probably stop using titles on links as soon as you can. They really are not good for accessibility, in the long run. They cannot be seen on mobile devices, which is a large portion of net usage nowadays. Additionally, they cause issues for people using screen-readers.

    I made the plugin to help those who still need this functionality, but do consider phasing out the use of title attributes.

    Thanks for the explanation Samuel. I once heard titles can help a bit with SEO because they add an additional keyword in the html markup of a page, do you have any idea if this is the case?

    Titles on links (or images) do not help with SEO in any way.
