  Set the variable w3-echo-link - this should be a list of things to try.
What you probably want is:

(setq w3-echo-link '(title text url name))

Which will show the 'TITLE' attribute of the link if there is one (fairly
rare), then the text of the link if it can be determined (should not ever
fail).  If for some reason it does fail, then it will echo the URL like
what you are seeing now.

  You should download the 'beta' of 4.0 - This is actually more stable in a 
lot of ways than 2.x.
