I do agree the content of the pages help get your pages into the search engines and bring all types of traffic, but you also need to ensure the pages are worthy .
(I'm on my way to rank 50 or so in a very popular search term and when that day comes I'm going to be happy, jumped from google results page 9 to 7 only just last night and the visitors are already coming in )

More Pages = More Money
That's true to a degree, but it doesn't mean each new page will generate as much income as each existing page. Some new pages will generate more, while others will generate less.

My site is dynamic
Keyword rank is simple you type a word in google if your page appears in the search results, check the page number and count your way down the page.
Anyone who has a million pages is either a) relying on user-generated content, or b) dynamically churning out content either via scraping or from a feed. The latter is baaad; the former presents it's own challenges, but can work out very well.
If increasing my Money allows me to create more pages. Then more Money equals more pages and more pages equals more visitors. So more Money equals more Money.
I have a website that for each widget I add, at least 5 pages are updated/created, up to hundreds. There are 1830 indexed pages on Google, but I am earning less than a dollar daily, with 150 uniques.
Overall, it depends on the content, market/niche, ad placement, etc... but more pages is more content, therefore it'll probably mean more SE visitors and pageviews...
I also have a site with over 8000 pages that earns less then 50 dollars per day.
Also have another one with 750 some odd pages, earns between 100 150 per day.
So you see it's not really the bulk of pages that make or break you, it is the quality and "public interest" of any given page.
I've an ancient (started in 1994) website with about 2530 pages in the Google index and most of my income comes from 1 page. Most of those pages make not a single cent in a week.
The pages that work well are very much a function of visitor interest. If e.g. there is a show on TV in the US that mentioned my subject, I triple my traffic instantly and my earnings go up even more.
Adding pages lately has little effect on revenue, if any at all.
But over the last couple of years I've been researching most of my topics. I look at the tools that give me an idea of what visitors interested in my field are searching for and what related searches they are doing. I then take the time to write articles and create projects I know will bring in visitors.
