NOTE: The plugin does not make any guarantee on the search engine ranking position of your website. The ranking position is determined by the search engine, which no one really have control over (unless you pay to be on top etc..) What the sitemap does, which is the main job of the plugin is to automatically "generate the sitemap" of links on your site for you, so that you do not have to do it manually (imagining you create a sitemap with thousand of urls yourself).
Also, It (optionally) help you submit that sitemap to the search engines, so that you do not have to manually do it.
Below is an Excerpt from WikiPedia, you can learn more about site map on Sitemap Wiki page(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Site_map).
Google introduced Google Sitemaps so web developers can publish lists of links from across their sites. The basic premise is that some sites have a large number of dynamic pages that are only available through the use of forms and user entries. The Sitemap files can then be used to indicate to a web crawler how such pages can be found. Bing, Google, Yahoo and Ask now jointly support the Sitemaps protocol.
Since Bing, Yahoo, Ask, and Google use the same protocol, having a Sitemap lets the four biggest search engines have the updated page information. Sitemaps do not guarantee all links will be crawled, and being crawled does not guarantee indexing. However, a Sitemap is still the best insurance for getting a search engine to learn about your entire site.
