I don't know the reason; one could probably be that the search engines see the longer articles as more informative.
About the 500 word count, it is just a standard word count for articles. 150 word articles are brief articles, 300-500 word articles are taken to be medium in length, while more than 1000 words are long and more descriptive articles.
I don't think it's the length that improved your ranking with the search engines. It must be the content. If length really means anything, we would be inundated with walls of text spewed out by mindless article spinners.
