A New Way to Increase Technorati Rankings?

I noticed that my Technorati ranking and links had increased over the past week and saw that I had been linked by a blog I have never heard of, a href="http://tinobuntic.blogspot.com/2007/01/2000-bloggers.html"who is showcasing /athe pictures of 2000 bloggers. I am on the left side bar--eleven rows down--next toa href="http://www.neo-neocon.blogspot.com/" Neo-neocon /aholding her apple. Okay, it's a neat idea but the purpose of showcasing 2000 bloggers and their mugshots appears to be to get as many links back from these 2000 blogs as possible--and obviously, it works. If you have your own blog and a picture of yourself on your blog as well, a href="http://tinobuntic.blogspot.com/2007/01/2000-bloggers.html"you can ask /ato be added to the list.
