My vote is for doing away with title attribute...
It makes for 'lazy' thinking; often obscures the link label for sighted
persons; has to be explicitly enabled by screen-readers users, and is not
accessible to keyboard users!
Provide adequate labels for hyper-links, i.e., use words that makes sense if
read out of context, and if the need for additional information is
necessary, add a sentence of text, that you can hide from those who can
determine the context without supporting text and 'show' to those who use
screen-readers or use keyboards...

Have a great day!
