Keywords prominence is one of the various important factors for search engine optimization. It means, your keywords should be at prominent area in content of your web pages .
Keyword proximity is the combination of the density of a keyword and the prominence. So proximity looks at the location of the keyword in the sentence and how often it's being used in that sentence and also takes into account the distance between them.

It is the way keyword are used in the content. Keyword Proximity is the use of keyword in the content and Keyword Prominence is how close the keyword is from the beginning....

Keyword Prominence refers the location of important keywords or key phrase within a web page. It must be used in HTML source code of a web page header, meta tags, meta description, H1 and H2 tags, beginning paragraph or hyperlink text.

So you should always put your primary keywords at the beginning of the sentences and paragraphs, in title, description and the header tags.

Keyword proximity is the closeness between two or more keywords, if your keywords are more closer for searching term, it is better.

For example: 1) How Dedicated IP Address Affects Search Engine Rankings.
2) How Dedicated IP Address Affects Rankings In Search Engine.

If someone searched for the term "search engine rankings" then the web page which containing the first sentence will rank higher than the second.

Keyword Proximity is also used in certain search engines algorithm for ranking a website. Throughout the web page is not the only place where keyword proximity comes into play, it is also a factor in the title, description, the keyword meta-tag, and other places through the body of the webpage.

Keyword Prominence:- Keyword prominence refers to how prominent your keywords are within key elements of your web page. Specifically, how close to the beginning of the page’s TITLE tag, heading tags (H1, H2, H3, etc.), and meta DESCRIPTION, your keyword phrase is placed. You should always put your most important keyword phrase at the very beginning of your TITLE, DESCRIPTION, and H1 and H2 tags. Also try to begin your first and last sentences of body copy with the important keyword phrases.

Keyword Proximity:- A search term can be made up of a combination of keywords. The keyword proximity refers to the distance between the search term’s individual keywords. For example: a website contains the keywords that make up the search term “Detroit Corporate Photographer” in the sentence “Detroit Photographer Blake Discher specializes in corporate photography”. The search term proximity between “Detroit” and “Photographer” is excellent, zero words, but between “Photographer” and “corporate” it is four words. The smaller the distance between a search term’s individual keywords, the more relevant it will be from a search engine’s point of view.

During SEO process, it is very important as to how you place keywords or phrases in a web page. Prominent Keywords can be placed in meta tags, start of a sentence, page header or in opening para. Keyword proximity refers to the closeness between two or more keywords. In general, the closer the keywords are, the better.
