Is there any benefit in putting words in the tag column?
If yes, Should I put words or phrase in that column?
It would be appreciated if you could help me.

I've started putting a few tags on my hubs - no more than five or six - but I've noticed that it does help. At first, I couldn't figure out why, but when I ran a backlink checker on my hubs then the checker showed that I had more backlinks than I actually do. A lot of those backlinks come from the tag pages - where ever those are.
Besides that, I've also noticed that there have been a couple other sites that pick up on the tags, and then index everything that's on those pages.
I don't know if that's the reason they are there or not, but hell, anything that helps is good - right?
The tags also help the HubPages.com search.
And also turning up in the Related Hubs column on other peoples hubs.
