Yes, but the notion of title is not evaluated more highly, unless the link
is bold, or large in font size... (and often that's not valid HTML).

Crawlers like Google will just aggregate all of these links and consider
them to be related ones.

WordPress, for example, integrates the link into a fixed menu in all pages.
Crawlers pick up the links every time a page is scanned. Maybe you should
put effort into finding the right tools which place all the links

There is no magic trick to gaining PR. If there was, then the millions 'out
there' would have exploited it. As a measure of caution, computer engineers
adapt the ranking system according to wrong-doing and exploitations. If
not, bad results are returned, as in the case of domain spamming, links
farms, etc.
