Does any one know what the literary significance for Great Expectations? Is it like why it's so popular, and how it affected other literature? How are we supposed to find that?

By actually reading and analyzing the book?

Aside from a cocky, know-it-all, comment I would suggest going to the library and looking for some literary criticism about Great Expectations or Dickens' writings in general. You can learn a lot by reading what other professionals have studied and analyzed. I do agree that actually reading the book is probably the best place to start. good luck
