How exactly does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What purpose do sitemaps have and why are they extremely important SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a file that includes the different pages of a site and the path to them through the sections of the website. The webpages can be organized visually or as plain text and this sort of a file is extremely useful for 2 reasons. The first one is that it makes it a lot easier for the site visitors to discover a certain page they need, so that they can navigate your website better and faster, which in turn will increase their user experience and it'll be more likely that they will come back to the site or will recommend it to other people. Another reason is that a sitemap allows search engines to index your content better, especially if it's updated, so when users are trying to find specific content, it's much more likely that they'll find your website as it will be listed higher in their search results. If your website is not indexed effectively, it may not show up for some searches, so even if you have what people require, they will simply not get to the website.
