what is low quality and high quality website in Google termlogy ?

I have read the FAQs and checked for similar issues: YES
 
How Google does differentiate the low quality and high quality website, is it about content? Or it is also about the technology used to create that website, suppose that if two website a, b or more than two website a, b, c… have similar content how does Google understand that A has copied B content or B has copied C content and in such case whose ranking will affect a, b or c
 
Can you please elaborate the difference between the low quality and high quality website?

Google has certain defined guidelines. The sites that are built around these are quality websites whereas others that are not or do not follow these are low quality sites.

The indexable content is extremely important.  It should be useful and/or entertaining for your human visitors.   Google uses the word "compelling"; basically that means that ideally when someone (not necessarily everyone) reads that page they say "Wow That's good. I wish I had found this page before. I must tell my friends about it.  I must come back and visit this page/site again."

That compelling content might be about engineering design, hip-hop, political theory, religion, beekeeping, health or any other subject.

The content should also be unique - i.e not found on other sites.

As far search engines such as google are concerned, the technology does NOT need to be particularly complex are advanced; basic coding methods that enable the seach engines to crawl the content and reach the content are fine for search engines.

But the technolgy and the content interact; if you use Flash or Javascript to present you high quality content you prevent search engines from accessing it as easily as plain text.   So make sure that the indexable text content either is itself "compelling" and the images, photos, video, flash clips, etc, are extras  OR  if you cannot do that, then make sure that the indexable text clearly identifies and perhaps explains/discusses the visual content etc.
