To display Best-Bet results in a result list, you must do the following:

1. Configure one or more Best Bets for the relevant search tabs in Ontolica (see “Creating and Configuring Ontolica Best Bets”) and/or configure SharePoint Best Bets as described in your SharePoint documentation.

2. For each result page where you want to show Best Bets, add an Ontolica Best Bets Web Part and configure it as follows:
o To show Best Bets established using the standard SharePoint feature, mark the Search SharePoint Best Bets check box. You can combine this with any of the settings listed below.
o To show all available Ontolica Best Bets, set the Web Part to show Best Bets from all Best-Bet groups.
o To show Ontolica Best Bets from a minority of available groups, configure the Web Part with a list of Best-Bet groups to show (properties from unnamed groups will not be shown).
o To show Ontolica Best Bets from a majority of available groups, configure the Web Part with a list of Best-Bet groups not to show (properties from all unnamed groups will be shown).

See “Ontolica Best Bets Web Part” for details about how to make these settings.

You will usually include a Best Bets Web Part on all of your result-list pages and place it just above the standard result list; it usually displays its results using special formatting (such as an eye-catching image or background color), which you can control by making settings for the web part. For even more detailed customization, you could also edit the XSLT template used by the web part.
