I started a website 2 years which did not generate much revenue. However I started a website with 200 pages and I am making 300 dollars a month on average. My conclusion was (disregarding other factors):
More Pages = More Money
Please give a rough estimate of the amount of pages + your earning instead of giving the number of unique visitors vs. earning.

Overall:

300 pages = 500 dollars/month

I have millions of pages, over 5000 to 8000 keywords monthly bring me traffic on google search and to be fair... if it wasn't for google I'd have no new traffic .

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 )

btw, How do you know your keyword rank? I would appreciate all your help and advice.
I am wondering how you have over a million pages. Did you create all the pages or is it a dynamic websites that allows your visitors to make pages for you?

I'll throw off your premise by saying that I have a site with one page that (in season) earns up to $50 per day.

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 earnings are low due to smartpricing.

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.

More pages help. In truth, you'll probably have a handful of popular pages that earn most of your revenue, and a "long tail" of other pages that earn a smaller fraction. It's never as simple as: "I earn $10/day off 10 pages, so I'll earn $20/day off 20 pages." But generally, more pages is a good thing...more chances to show up in SERPs, more content for your visitors to explore, etc.

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 more pages equal more visitors and more visitors equal more Money.
Will more pages equal more Money?

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.

More pages means more money, sure, but it's not a linear growth.

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...

As you said more pages= more content= more chance of showing up in Google= more visitors= more money.
Although this isnt necessarily true, but in general it makes sense.

I have a single page that makes over 200 per day, that page is on a 190 page site.

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.

Public interest is the key IMHO.

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.

My topic and the style of my site means that most articles take quite a bit of research before writing so it takes me a few days to write an article. At times I write one because it interests me or would improve the overall information to be found on the site.

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.

The key is to find the pages that make money (channels) and then to create pages based on those subjects. So yes, you can make more money with more pages as long as they are the ones that have a high CPM.

Good luck!
