I'm wondering if I should use my first name Dorsi as one of the keywords in all my hubs. Since my subdomain is my first name and my name ranks high on Google (first page) I think this might help my hubs?
I have done that in the past and recently removed them. To be quite honest, I figured it might help with ranking, but the keyword itself isn't relevant.
I finally accepted that fact and removed them from tags/keywords.
Dorsi, in your case, you might find a benefit from adding your name to the end of one of your titles since your name is searched quite often (I'm showing 49,000 local and 165,000 global) Whereas livewithrichard or Cagsil has little or no monthly searches.
Try it out on a slow performing hub. For instance, I noticed this hub of yours: The RCA EZ Small Wonder Camcorder How about changing the title to Dorsi reviews the RCA EZ Small Wonder Camcorder and see how much of a difference it is in about a month. But be sure to ping it and submit the RSS for that hub after you change the title. Bookmark it then ping the bookmark url as well. Who knows, you have an established brand with the name you might as well benefit from it.
Dorsi probably does have a lot of searchers. The word refers to a race of warriors in novels by Gordon Dickson. It is used in reference to back muscles. Various people with that name turn up on the web.
The question is: Are these the searchers that are interested in your hub? Providing 1000 readers each month that all stay for 3 seconds (long enough to figure out it isn't about science fiction or muscles) will not endear you to Google.
You are all looking at broad searches, exact searches for the word 'dorsi' only have 1000 global monthly searches. Broad searches are worthless according to Ryan Kett
Its bad really that the 'Exact' button is so disguised, its on the left-hand column, its in brackets.
Broad searches mean that your page might be listed amongst variations of your keyword and people probably won't click on your page unless it is the exact words they are looking for. I found this out the hard way, thought I was top on Google page 1 for a 60,000 keyword and wondered why I wasn't seeing any traffic.

I joined hubpages one month ago and started writing hubs on weekends because I am very busy on working days. I have published 12-13 hubs right now and they are featured (12 of them while the 13th is still under review)....

I keep seeing people making these mistakes so I thought I'd just point them out:1. When doing a search for keywords make sure you select "exact" not "broad." Broad brings in any keyword searches that...

I'm having an issue deciding what keywords to go after. Most of the lower competition words I'm not as interested in and it takes me longer to write since I'm not enjoying. But, most of the things I'm very interested in...
