Plugin? WordPress > Remove Title Attributes
There's a plugin for everything huh? You don't need an SEO, there's a plugin for that too.
Now, why would WordPress have a Plugin to remove Title Attributes?
The title attribute is best used to add optional advisory information to a page element. WordPress's default behaviour is to add title attributes to pretty much every link that it can, whether it has advisory information about it to offer or not. For example, links in Page lists, archive menus, and in the default "Recent Posts" widget simply duplicate the link text in their title attributes. This helps no one but hinders some users.
I review quite a few sites on a regular basis. I'm seeing Title Attribute abuse on the rise and it all comes back to WordPress and those who decided to copy what WP users were doing.
Whenever I see it, I think one of two things. It's a Pushbutton SEO, does everything via a Plugin or, the person is attempting to increase keyword relevancy by stacking title attributes with matching anchor text, attribute spamming. Bad Webmaster, Bad! Does Your Website Stutter?
