I think across the board, I have an answer to "what makes this website better".
It's because it's a niche website covering a subject in detail. The experts are people who know something inside and out. Those will be most if not all the small websites imo. The specialty sites. Isn't being an expert in a field better than a website that has 1% of their articles covering the same thing? The site covering 100% of that subject must know it better and have more in depth information.
I do think this is a good thing that Google is trying to do. What I read "small websites", I can't help but think about all those specialty/niche sites which dropped off the face of Google search. Just my opinion so who knows. It's what I've seen happen but as we know, "your results may vary".
