The Best Bets page provides a list of Best Bets configured for the current search tab. You can see the following information here:

• Best-Bet Groups and Group Memberships: In the list, Best-Bet groups are shown in left-justified bold type; the best bets belonging to each group are shown in standard type, indented below their group name.

• Best-Bet Titles: These are listed in the Title column. As mentioned above, each Best Bet is shown in standard type and indented below the Best-Bet group to which it belongs. These titles are also shown by the Best Bets Web Part.

• Keyword(s): Lists the search words that will trigger each Best Bet.

• Audiences: Lists the SharePoint audiences to which the Best Bet can be shown.

• Inheritance Status: As with most Ontolica settings, Best Bets are inherited along the lines of your SharePoint site structure. Icons in the Inherited column indicate whether each Best Bet has inherited some or all of its settings from a higher-level site as follows:

{width:400px}.This icon in the Inherited column indicates the Best Bet that has been inherited from a higher site level without any local overrides. You can break the inheritance and make custom settings for the local site by using the Best Bet action menus (see below). The icon is shown in gray for Best Bets that are hidden starting at the current level and below.
This icon in the Inherited column indicates the Best Bet that was originally inherited from a higher site level but has since been customized. These Best Bets no longer track updates made at higher site levels—all settings are now defined locally. These local overrides are also inherited by child sites (if any). You can reinstate the inheritance of any of these Best Bets by using the action menus (see below). The icon is shown in gray for Best Bets that are hidden starting at the current level and below.
(no icon) Best Bets that do not show an icon in the Inherited column have been created at the local level and are not available at higher levels. These Best Bets will be inherited by child sites (if any).
{width:400px}.This icon in the Inherited column indicates the Best Bet that has been both created and hidden at the local level (see below for details about hidden Best Bets).
Note: Even at the top, farm level you will see inheritance indicators. Best Bets (and other settings) shown as inherited or customized at this level are inheriting their settings from the Ontolica factory defaults. You can think of the defaults as existing as a virtual site level immediately above the farm level. This provides a good way to handle upgrades to Ontolica, enabling new defaults to be loaded into your system during an upgrade without affecting your configuration work so far. You can override, revert and/or hide any of these settings at the farm level as required, just as on other levels. See below for the relevant commands.
