    If I understand your thread, you are talking about the 'title' tag for a sentence or div of some sort. For example:

    <h1 title="This is a tooltip">Hover over this sentence to see the tooltip</h1>

    The advantage to this is to give your visitor more information about the text or image displayed.

    Do you mean ALT tags? because those are the ones that count.

    Andrewc's posts above, which are both wrong, illustrate in a very obvious way why members should not simply ask a question, but should provide background information as well. Additional information in phptrainingtesting's original post would have given more information that would allow those who know the answer to give a detailed answer. First to answer both of andrewc's questions, the first post gives an example of a heading, which would appear at the top of the page when it is displayed in a browser. In the second, an ALT tag is used to provide ALTernate text (hence the name ALT tag)that would be displayed in place of something, usually a graphic or photo, that a browser cannot display.
    A Title Tag is provided in the HTML coding of a website to describe the contents of a webpage, and should contain no more than one or two keywords that the website owner wants that page to be ranked for. For example, if an auto supply store has a page devoted to replacement parts for Chevrolet cars, and wants the page to be ranked for the phrase "Chevrolet Car Parts", The Title tag would read, "<title>Chevrolet Car Parts<title>, and would be placed right after the "head" tag.

    It's just like erictwendell said, the Title Tag is the thing that Google index first. Also it is the first thing that shows up in Google search results.
