YouTube Opinion Can putting your name in the tags section of your video rank your video?

So I searched up my name (Josh Tan) on youtube to see if my video shows below my channel when ever I upload. It was for the first few hours then it drops. Showing the tag "Josh Tan" was rank number "27". My question its... should I stop putting my channel name in the tag section BECAUSE of the other Josh Tan was ranking higher than me?

I actually use tags to go after a shortened version of my channel name. I take it, then the other person takes it. It is a fun game of back and forth. But I keep doing it.
