I like it within the first 50 characters and in at least one title.
In the hub itself I just put them where they would appear naturally and I try to avoid keyword stuffing. The main keyword(s) should also be put in the title of the hub but that's obvious of course.
I never try to fix them; it comes naturally in the content.
Try and get you main keyword or key phrase in to your Hub title and then ensure that this repeats, naturally at least a couple of time within your hub content.
The ratio of your keyword to page content is about 3%.
This means that if your page content is 100 words then the maximum times your keyword should appear is thrice, to avoid being flagged as keyword stuffing by search engines.
You can always use M.S. Word to count the total number of words in your article and then work backwards to figure out how much is 3%.
If you have a website (a blog, for example) where you talk about raising the moles in captivity, I am sure you would have when someone searches for "moles" into Google, your site comes first. There are many techniques to move up in search engines and SEOs are the people who were knowledgeable about these techniques, we worry about them running.

I agree with opensourcevarsity, but don't only focus on your main keyword. You can have more, if they are relevant to the topic. Make a nice blend of these keywords and you are fine.
Keywords are very important in Blogs. First of all you have to make sure your tile is strong with keyword. Second make sure you mention keywords in your blog’s body as well. Best practice is not to use more then 5 keywords in 500 words paragraph.
