    It's not about quantity ... it's about quality. Quality articles will get you backlinks (shares or mentions). A bunch of low-quality content isn't going to do much.

    I always interlink my posts as it's part of on page seo.

    Quality but of course must also maintain a decent amount of content. Google loves quality content, so you should update (add) your content on a regular basis.

    The amount does not equal more authority, it just means you have more content.

    A website with 100 high-quality articles can have more authority than a website with 1000 low-quality articles.

    "Quality is better than Quantity" Google always see for an quality content than the quantity of content.More quality content have more authority for your site.Keep updating your content regularly to look natural.

    Beside high quality articles as already mentioned, you need traffic and you need people to stay on your website. It's not always easy depending on what niche you are into!

    Authority is not just about quantity. It's about the links to your site, and the depth of your content.

    Google always love the natural contents, If your contents are interesting to read peoples then it's getting to the good amount of shares and new visitors. Make the contents with high-quality and really engaging to the visitors also relevant to your site niche will help a lot.

    Yeah quality definitely counts, but it's also how many backlinks "votes" you have pointing to a piece of content. That's a large determining factor regardless of what anybody tells you. You can have the better content, but some joker who has lower quality content than you can outrank you with some strategic backlinking. So ranking is not just about quality content, but it's a definitely a good practice and a great start.

    I wish quantity was a factor, then I would have uploaded thousands of articles in my site and get it ranked :D

    If the content in your site aligns with the "search intent" of the user persona, then, I am sure your site will be very valuable. This automatically means that the quality matters over quantity.
