    I've heard a lot of people mention that inserting a link to an authority site in an article improves the article's quality from google's perspective.

    I do this from time to time, but have never noticed any difference.

    Does know anyone know this to be true from their own empirical experience?

    Yes, I and a lot of other SEO`ers believe in it - by 'voting' for another quality website in your niche you 'prove' that you are not a selfish affiliate and you are producing quality content.

    That logic is sound.

    Just to clarify, you have actually tested this logic and seen perceptible results from the additional authority link.
