Link text (WordPress, SEO)

You can add a so-called link text to an URL in WordPress. This text can subsequently be displayed as a tooltip

See the image on the site. I don't know how in general this link text appears in pages, but with the custom theme that I usually work with, it seems like

<span class="tooltip"Link text appears here</span>

and it appears like tooltips.

But what is this link text?

  • An attribute to the html tag href?
  • Something WordPress specific?
  • None of the above?

SEO relevance?

  • It's probably not very relevant for SEO
  • It's likely less relevant than the title attribute for images, that is already of questionable value.

In general, I think it's best not to use this feature/attribute/whatever it is.
